Meaning of the song Best Day Of My Life by American Authors, and what it is about


The lively and positive song "Best Day of My Life" by American Authors honours the emotions of joy and optimism. The message of the song is to live in the present, welcome life's journeys, and discover happiness in the little things in life.


The singer is described in the lyrics as having the "best day of their life," a state of complete ecstasy in which everything is going according to plan. It's about living in the moment, enjoying the little things, and giving thanks for the good times.


In a Songfacts podcast, Dave Rublin said that the song was in the process of writing at the time of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in 2012. They were motivated to compose the tune in order to "make people happy and make people feel positive, because that's something that was missing from rock and from songwriting, just something so simplistic that can be an earworm, that can carry people."


The song's background is connected to the band's personal experiences and travels. After forming in 2006, American Authors released "Best Day of My Life" in 2013 as a part of their self-titled debut album, "Oh, What a Life." Because to its upbeat lyrics, catchy melody, and use in a number of TV episodes, movies, and commercials, the song became quite popular.


Lyrics of the song Best Day Of My Life by American Authors


I had a dream so big and loud

I jumped so high I touched the clouds

Wo-o-o-o-o-oh [x2]

I stretched my hands out to the sky

We danced with monsters through the night

Wo-o-o-o-o-oh [x2]

 

I'm never gonna look back

Whoa, I'm never gonna give it up

No, please don't wake me now

(2, 3, 4)

Oo-o-o-o-oo

This is gonna be the best day of my life

My li-i-i-ife

Oo-o-o-o-oo

This is gonna be the best day of my life

My li-i-i-ife

 

I howled at the moon with friends

And then the sun came crashing in

Wo-o-o-o-o-oh [x2]

But all the possibilities

No limits just epiphanies

Wo-o-o-o-o-oh [x2]

 

I'm never gonna look back

Whoa, I'm never gonna give it up

No, just don't wake me now

 

Oo-o-o-o-oo

This is gonna be the best day of my life

My li-i-i-ife

Oo-o-o-o-oo

This is gonna be the best day of my life

My li-i-i-ife

 

I hear it calling outside my window

I feel it in my soul (soul)

The stars were burning so bright

The sun was out 'til midnight

I say we lose control (control)

 

Oo-o-o-o-o

 

This is gonna be the best day of my life

My li-i-i-ife

Oo-o-o-o-o

This is gonna be the best day of my life

My li-i-i-ife

This is gonna be, this is gonna be, this is gotta be

The best day of my life

Everything is looking up, everybody up now

This is gonna be the best day of my life

My li-i-i-ife
