Only Life is the third album released by the Feelies. It was released in 1988 with the same line-up that appeared on the band's previous album, The Good Earth. It features a cover of "What Goes On", originally performed by The Velvet Underground. The album was reissued on CD in 2008 by Water Records via Universal Music Special Products. A portion of the song "It's Only Life" would be covered by Mike Doughty as part of a mash-up with Mary J. Blige's song "Real Love" on Doughty's album Skittish.
