The most famous Tin Pan Alleys's song

"Feel good" as one of the songs that successfully managed to be produced, though it touched on the lives of the oppressed, it also generalized some of the views according to the way the message was brought out (Kenneth, 2001). This is one of the major reasons as to why it became successful as it did not criticize any sides of the conditions and the tribulations that people were subjected to. Another reason as to why the song "Feels Good" became successful was because it had a partial support from some of the members who happened to be falling in the bracket of ruling class. This was one of the strategies that Alley used in successfully her song. She wanted to make the rulers or governors to know that her song was of no harm to their governance and was only meant for entertainment. It was because the governors by then were also longing for an entertaining music but due to the fact that they did not want the songs that were against their interests or wishes, they could not manage to find it. This made them feel very proud when Alley came up with the song that generally favored everyone. The song used a hidden method to focus on the lives of those facing a lot of tribulations. The kind of method used was to teach all people about some of the basic aspects of life. This did not create any suspicion because it was a general matter that talked on life and not the lives of the people in particular. From the context of the song, it can be concluded that the song "feel good" was successfully produced because its context was based on general matters that did not under any given circumstance criticize anybody. It can also be said that the song became successful because according to the artist, it was meant to entertain not to criticize anybody.
