“The Rascals – It’s A Beautiful Morning”


“A Beautiful Morning” is a song written by Felix Cavaliere and Eddie Brigati and recorded by The Rascals. Coming out in early 1968, it was the group’s first single released under that name rather than The Young Rascals. The first album on which the song appeared was Time Peace: The Rascals’ Greatest Hits.

It continued the theme of carefree optimism that had distinguished the previous year’s “Groovin'”. The song was a big hit in the United States, reaching number three on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and also reaching number 36 on the Hot Rhythm & Blues Singles chart.

It was RIAA-certified as a Million Seller on June 28, 1968. The song had an introductory sound of mystical wind chimes and bells.

  1. Memories of when the future looked bright – but that’s probably because I was young then.

    1. …Because the air was cleaner, clearer and the sunshine was brighter, we could only imagine the future in song. But oh how nostalgic music haunts our good memories today. ♥️🎼

  2. I love this song and still sing a few lines from it almost every time I walk out my front door on a beautiful morning! Good music never dies!
