“This Is the Life” is an indie pop / folk song by Scottish singer-songwriter Amy Macdonald from her 2007 album of the same title. It was released on December 10, 2007 in UK, and in April 2008 in most of European countries, becoming a major hit worldwide. It has so far been Macdonald’s most successful single, topping six charts and reaching the top ten in 11 charts around the world. The music video consists of pictures of Macdonald and her friends’ night out. As sign of popularity, the song and the music video were included on the famous double compilation NRJ Music Awards 2009. The song was used in a 2010 advert for the Fiat 500 shown across Europe. It was also used in the early 2011 as an advert in Norway and re-entered the chart directly at number one. Read on...
