Today, Susanna, Duchess of Peace, needed to hear one of those songs that proclaims, “It’s alright”. So, The Royal Song of the Day is “Revolution” by the Beatles. Not simply for the thought of a nonviolent shift in the universe, though, also for the refrain, “You know it’s gonna be alright”.
Can you think of a comfort song? Please send us an e-mail, or put in the comments, your favorite song that expresses the sentiment “Everything’s going to be alright”. We will choose one or more for future Royal Songs of the Day.
Duchess Susanna had it in her mind that there are a whole bunch of songs that chant “It’s gonna be alright”. Though, on contemplation, some of the songs she was thinking about actually said it in a different way than with the word “alright”.
So, here are some other songs Duchess Susanna found on an internet/soul search for comfort songs…
Duchess Susanna’s List of Royal Comfort Songs:
“It’s alright” by Kim Wilde. A 2011 video: here.
“…We are the seed of the new breed / we will succeed our time has come / we are the new…it’s alright… it’s alright / it’s alright… it’s really alright… -Kim Wilde
“It’s Gonna Be Alright” by Gerry & The Pacemakers. 1964 Video: here.
“It’s Alright To Cry”, from Free To Be, performed by Rosey Grier: here
“Rocket Man” by Elton John. A youtube video: here.
