Everything'll Be Alright (Will's Lullaby)

Album: We Were Here (2006)

Songfacts®:

  • This was one of the first songs Radin ever wrote. He penned it for the child of his comic actor friend Jay Chandrasekhar. Radin recalled on a Reddit AMA: "When him and his wife Susan had their first baby, Will, they would play my demos to Will (this was when I didn't have a record yet) to make him fall asleep. So I wrote this song as a lullaby to Will. And it was during a time when Hurricane Katrina just hit New Orleans, so I was watching the news and devastated by the news, and I kind of coupled a lullaby with something I was feeling, desperate and trying to find some way to help people going through that time, because I felt powerless. Like a lot of them."

    Jay Chandrasekhar (born April 9, 1968) is an American actor, comedian, writer, and director best known for his work with the sketch comedy group Broken Lizard and for directing and starring in the Broken Lizard films Super Troopers, Club Dread, and Beerfest.
