"This Is the Life" is a song by Scottish singer-songwriter Amy Macdonald from her 2007 album of the same name. It was released on 10 December 2007 in the United Kingdom and in April 2008 in most European countries, becoming a major hit. It has been Macdonald's most successful single to date, topping eight European singles charts and reaching the top ten on nine other European music listings. Conversely, the song did not match the success of "Mr Rock & Roll" in the United Kingdom, stalling at number 28 on the UK Singles Chart and number 17 in her native Scotland. The music video consists of pictures of Macdonald and her friends' night out.

The song was used in a 2010 advert for the Fiat 500 shown across Europe.[1] It was also used in a Norwegian advert in early 2011 and re-entered the country's official chart at number one. The track was released in the United States on a vinyl 45 rpm single (Decca UCGR-00199-1) with a unique picture sleeve, backed with "Let's Start a Band."

Chart performance

The song was first released in late 2007 in the United Kingdom but achieved only moderate success, peaking at number 28 on the UK Singles Chart and number 18 on the Scottish Singles Chart. In 2008, it was released in many European countries, achieving huge success. It reached number one in Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, and the Netherlands. In Flanders and the Netherlands, "This Is the Life" was the highest-selling song of 2008. It also reached the top three in France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland. In Spain, the song was certified 2× Platinum with sales of over 80,000 units in 2009. In Norway, the song reached number 10 during its initial release, but in January 2011, it re-entered the chart at number one.
