Joy Retro Disco presents I Can See Clearly Now by Johnny Nash

Uplifting tunes for your weekend.


Oh, it was tough to decide which version of this uplifting tune to go with this week, but I had to go with the original by the dude who actually wrote and performed the original hit, Johnny Nash. Nash had a number one hit with I Can See Clearly Now in 1972 (four weeks at number one on the billboard charts), but the tune is probably more well-known for the 1993 cover by Jimmy Cliff, which was included in the soundtrack of the film Cool Runnings.

Whichever version you prefer, this is a tune of hope, a tune to sing along to when things are going well and a tune to really crank up when things go to shit. So adaptable.

It’s gonna be a bright, bright sunshiney day.
