"Feelin' Satisfied" is a 1978 song written by Tom Scholz for the Boston band album Don't Look Back. Paul Grein of Billboard described the song as "an affectionate tribute to the power of music."[1] The same magazine later described the song as an "upbeat track which is totally rock 'n' roll," praising the "clear singing" and "fresh sounds."[2] Terry Hazlett of The Observer-Reporter described the song as an "innocent little [ditty]" which comes across like a "rock 'n' roll anthem.".[3] Pete Bishop of The Pittsburgh Press claimed that it has "an infectious happy feel."[4]
