The Best

It’s a dark time in our world right now. Sometimes life is very difficult, and sometimes a lot of things are out of our control. It is important to think about what you can control.

Is there anything that you can do today to take better care of yourself? Is there anything you can do today to make someone else’s life a little easier or a little happier?

Every week, I share a post with the hopes that I will brighten at least one person’s dayβ€”even if for a moment.

This week I wanted to share a song from my favorite (non-animated) TV show because the first time I experienced this song, I was deeply moved, and I hope it moves you too. πŸ’™

I have mentioned that I don’t watch a lot of TV, but that changes when I find something that I really LOVE! Someone recommended that I watch the TV show Schitt’s Creek.

The end of last year, I started watching it, and I loved it SO MUCH that I couldn’t stop! 😜

The show ALWAYS moved me and brightened my day, and that is why I believe this show will always be my favorite.πŸ’›

My favorite character in the show is David Rose (Dan Levy). When David is simply present in a scene, he just makes me smileβ€”not to mention that his delivery of lines is utterly fantastic!

One of my FAVORITE moments in the show is when David Rose is serenaded by Patrick Brewer (Noah Reid). You can watch it here:


I call you when I need you and my heart’s on fire
You come to me wild and wired
You come to me and give me everything I need
Give me a life time of promises and a world of dreams
Speak the language of love like you know what it means

And it can’t be wrong
Take my heart and make it strong, baby
Cuz you’re simply the best
Better than all the rest
Better than anyone
Anyone I’ve ever met
And I’m stuck on your heart
I hang on every word you say
Tear us apart
Oh baby, I’d rather be dead
In your heart I see the start of every night and every day
In your eyes I get lost, I get washed away
Just as long as I’m here in your arms I could be in no better place
You’re simply the best
Better than all the rest
Better than anyone
Anyone I’ve ever met
Oh you’re the best


I’m going to be authentic with you; I totally cried the first time I watched this scene. You can just feel the love. πŸ’œ

What do you think of this rendition of “Simply the Best” and this scene?

The version of “The Best” that I most often heard growing up was Tina Tuner’s. This is the version that David Rose dances to as his “olive branch” for Patrick Brewer. 😍

This scene makes me smile so much. 😊

What do you think of Tina Tuner’s version? What do you think of this scene?

The song “The Best” is so powerful and puts me in a feel-good mood when I hear it.

One of my friends actually took out her phone during the vow exchange at her wedding ceremony to play a clip of “The Best” to express to the man she was marrying how much he meant to her! πŸ’›

I truly hope that these videos and these versions of “The Best” made you smile today.

Wishing you well! πŸ’š

  1. This post absolutely made me smile! And so do your IG posts. You push a lot of happiness out into the world, Ally!
    I didn’t recognize the song from Patrick’s version for David. But I certainly remember Tina’s version. It gives me goosebumps! I watched one or two episodes of Schitt’s Creek and didn’t like it, but your rave review has me reconsidering.

Thoughts? Please post them :-)
