About All Right

"All Right" is a song written and recorded by American singer-songwriter Christopher Cross. It was released in January 1983 as the lead single from the album, Another Page. On the heels of his Grammy winning first album, and following his #1 hits "Sailing" and "Arthur's Theme (The Best that You Can Do)" expectations were strong enough for this first single from his second album to allow "All Right" to debut on Billboard Magazine's hot 100 at the high-position of #29. It was the fifth-highest debuting single of the 1980s ranking behind Michael Jackson's "Thriller" (No. 20), USA for Africa's "We Are the World" (No. 21), Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson's "Say Say Say" (No. 26), and Men at Work's "Overkill" (No. 28), all of which at least made the top five of the chart. Unfortunately, "All Right" -- which featured former Doobie Brothers member Michael McDonald on background vocals-- did not repeat Cross's previous success, and stalled at #12, just outside the top 10. The song gained a measure of fame when it was used by CBS Sports for its highlight montage of the 1983 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament at the end of its broadcast of the championship game. The game, which saw North Carolina State, led by coach Jim Valvano, upset heavily favored Houston 54-52 when Lorenzo Charles caught an airballed shot by teammate Dereck Whittenburg and slammed the ball through the hoop on the game's final play, is widely regarded as one of the most memorable games in NCAA tournament history. Four years later, CBS introduced One Shining Moment to accompany tournament highlights at the end of the championship game broadcast, a tradition which continues.

I know, I know what's on your mind
And I know it gets tough sometimes.
But you can give it one more try to find another reason why,
You should pick it up and try it again
â??Cause it's all right - I think we're gonna make it,
I think it might just work out this time.
It's all right - I think we're gonna make it
I think it might work out fine this time
It's all right - I think we're gonna make it
I think it might just work out,
â??cause it's not too late for that too late for me.

I know I've been hurt before
And I know I really shouldn't give any more.
But this time, this time things seem just a little different.
And when I look in your eyes, you know I can see that it's true.
And I hear you say:

It's all right I think we're gonna make it,
I think it might just work out this time.
It's all right I think we're gonna make it
I think it might work out fine this time
It's all right I think we're gonna make it
I think it might just work out,
â??Cause it's not too late for that too late for me.

Just when you feel helpless, nothing left to say.
Love will find us. The past behind us then we're on our way.

Time and time again I see people so unsure like me,
We all know it gets heard sometimes You can give it one more try,
Find another reason why you should pick it up,
You should kick it up and try it again.

â??Cause it's all right I think we're gonna make it,
I think it might just work out this time.
It's all right I think we're gonna make it
I think it might work out fine this time
It's all right I think we're gonna make it
I think it might just work out,
â??Cause it's not too late for that too late for me.
