Album: For Children Of All Ages (1969)

Songfacts®:

  • In his 2018 interview with Songfacts, Brackett said that "It's Alright" is a breakup song, but not one based on his own life.

    Said Brackett: "Until recently I've never had anybody break up with me. This just happened to me, and it's a new experience. Knowing other people that had broken up, heartbreak is like something you're lucky to be able to feel, because you had something to get heartbroken over. You can't even experience heartbreak without having something really good happen. That's what it's all about. It's just a breakup song."
  • According to Brackett, this was a hit in South America.
