Songfacts®: You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.
This was written by the Country singer/songwriter John D. Loudermilk. Some years before The Casinos recorded it, Loudermilk tried to release his own version of it, which flopped. Later, Johnny Nash released a version, which also flopped.
This was the Casinos' very first hit. It took the group 9 years to obtain it. (Funny enough, the group consisted of 9 men and it took them 9 years to receive their first hit!).
Other artists who have covered this song were Eddy Arnold, William Bell, Perry Como, the Manhattans, Johnny Mathis, Neal McCoy, Daniel O'Donnell, Johnny Tillotson, and Andy Williams. (thanks, Jerro - New Alexandria, PA, for all above)
Dave reveals the inspiration for "Feelin' Alright" and explains how the first song he ever wrote became the biggest hit for his band Traffic.
