Dan Rather on ‘It’s a Good Day’: ‘One of My All-Time Favorites and a Reason to Smile’

“If you’ve never heard of Peggy Lee, the best way I can describe her is that she was the Taylor Swift of my time. In that, like Swift, she was a superstar singer-songwriter of popular music. The Grammy winner wrote more than 270 songs, including many chart-toppers, like 1946’s ‘It’s a Good Day.’ … Maybe one of your parents, or a grandparent, sang ‘It’s a Good Day’ to you when you were a child. It’s a song you’ll find yourself humming long after you’ve heard it. Living through times such as these, I find songs like this can quickly turn a gray day into a sunny one.” [Source: Dan Rather, Steady by Dan Rather]
