  • The Irish Rock quartet, Kodaline, open their debut album In a Perfect World with this song where vocalist Steve Garrigan offers consolation and positivity in the wake of disappointment. The singer told Digital Spy that the record is a "collection of life experiences" that has a very simple message. "I'm a true believer in positive thinking.

When things get bad, you've got to keep looking forward to something better."
