It's Alright" is the 13th single from Pet Shop Boys and was released in the UK by Parlophone Records on 26 June 1989. It reached number 5 in the UK and, as of February 2009, it is the Pet Shop Boys' 8th best-selling single. The song was originally written and performed by Sterling Void, Chicago Vocalist and lyricist Paris Brightledge and Marshall Jefferson and came to the attention of Pet Shop Boys on a house compilation issued by DJ International records in 1987.
On June 26, 1989, ‘It’s Alright’ is released. They originally heard this song – by Chicago House artist Sterling Void – when one of them popped out during the recording of ‘I Get Excited’ (The B-side of ‘Heart’) and bought Acid Tracks: The House Sound Of Chicago Vol. 3 on CD and were both immediately impressed by this song. For a single they re-recorded it in a more poppy style and Neil added a verse about the threat facing the world environment. It's about the power of music
