"Better Now" is a 2004 song by the American alternative rock band Collective Soul, released on their 2004 album, Youth. It was written by singer/guitarist Ed Roland and producer Dexter Green.
The coda features a saxophonesolo. In concert, this is replaced with a guitar solo. The radio edit version also includes a guitar solo. Also unusual for a rock song, the bass doesn't come in until the first chorus, and plays prominent alternating root / fifth quarter notes.
The Kellogg Company used it in an ad for its Special K cereal, "feeling better now" in this instance being used to denote a woman's feeling healthier after going on their "Special K diet" (she is seen trying on dresses.)
For the 2008 Canadian election, Conservative prime minister Stephen Harper used the song as his intro music when he entered his party HQ for a victory speech. The song was similarly used in the 2011 Conservative federal election campaign.
