“Its Alright” is the 13th single from Pet Shop Boys and was released in the UK by Parlophone Records on 26 June 1989.
The lyrics list a wide variety of serious political issues in the headlines at the time (“Dictation enforced in Afghanistan, revolution in South Africa taking a stand”), and then offers the positive message of the title that on its “timeless wavelength”, “music is our life’s foundation”, it “shall last” and ultimately “succeed all the nations to come”.
On the album (Introspective) version, the song concludes with a touch of doubt as Neil Tennant repeats (apparently over the telephone): “I hope its gonna be alright”. On the 10″ single there are additional lyrics with Neil Tennant speaking: “there’s a boy standing by a river, there’s a girl lying with her lover, there’s a statesman standing at a crossroads, there’s a soldier polishing his gun”.
The song was originally written and performed by Sterling Void and came to the attention of Pet Shop Boys on a house compilation. In fact, Sterling Void remixed the track on the second 12″, titled the “DJ International Mixes”. Voids original version has only two verses (the first and third in the PSB version). The second verse of the Pet Shop Boys version, which expands the songs concerns beyond the purely political into environmental issues (specifically desertification), was written by Neil Tennant.
The single was originally released on the Introspective album, where it clocked in at over nine minutes. The song reached number 5 in the UK. As of February 2009, it is the Pet Shop Boys 8th best-selling single.
A cover was done by Hercules and Love Affair on their 2011 album Blue Songs.

Dictation being forced in Afghanistan
Revolution in South Africa taking a stand
People in Eurasia on the brink of oppression
I hope it’s going to be alright
I hope the music plays forever
Forests falling at a desperate pace
The earth is dying, and desert taking its place
People under pressure on the brink of starvation
I hope it’s gonna be alright
(Alright alright alright)
Cause the music plays forever
(Cause it goes on and on and on and on and on)
I hope it’s gonna be alright
(On and on and on and on, forever)
And the music plays forever
(Alright alright)
Generations will come and go (will come and go)
But there’s one thing for sure
Music is our life’s foundation
And shall succeed all the nations to come
Cause the music plays forever
(Cause it goes on and on and on and on and on)
I hope it’s gonna be alright
(On and on and on and on and on)
(On and on and on and on)
And the music plays forever
The year three thousand may still come to pass
But the music shall last
I can hear it on a timeless wavelength
Never dissipating but giving us strength
I think it’s gonna be alright
(It’s gonna be alright)
(Alright alright alright alright)
Cause the music plays forever
(Eeh-oh-oh-eeh)
(Gonna be alright)
If the music plays forever
(It will be alright)
If the music plays forever
(I think it’s gonna be alright)
It’s gonna be alright
(If the music plays)
It’s all – alright
It’s alright
(For it goes on and on and on and on)
(On and on and on and on)
