Tell Me Something Good

Album: Sing Your Own Song (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This song was inspired by real life. North 40's Paige Logan explained to Billboard magazine: "It came from a bad day. That's what we try to do - try to find the good in the bad, and turn it around. We wrote a happy positive song from a space that wasn't so happy."

    "I wasn't always that optimistic," she added. "There was a point in my life where I was a little more dismal, but the beauty about being our age is that you go through different peaks and valleys. That's where you get the wisdom to see it from another perspective. You have to earn wisdom, you can't read it in a book."
