I remember looking at Jim’s letter prompts a few weeks ago and thinking of songs, but I obviously failed to write them down (December became a generally chaotic month). So last week, I took a glance through our music collection to look for something I have not heard for a while.
Do you remember the Britpop band Cast? I believe they were from Liverpool. They had a few big songs and this was one of them. It is called “Alright” and is rather merry really for a break up song. You may be as shocked as I was to realize this song was released a whopping twenty-five years ago! Where has the time gone?
If you recognise the lead singer – it is because he was in The La’s … no? Anyone? The silence is deafening. Don’t you remember the iconic song “There She Goes Again“.

I guess I'm alright, guess I'm alright I guess I'm doing fine, guess I'm doing fine D'you think I miss you? D'you think I care? D'you think I'd lay down and die? You never even tried You never even tried Now it's about time, it's the right time If you willed your mind, you willed your mind So fly on swift now On your journey home And you've left the nest now, and you have flown There ain't nothing you don't know Ain't nothing you don't know Look out to sea And tell me what we came here for Is it what they say or is there more than we can know And if so Which way am I to go? Which way am I to go? I guess I'm alright guess I'm alright I guess I'm doing fine, guess I'm doing fine Can't see no reasons But not pushing through So make like the wind that's blowing you There ain't nothing you can't do Ain't nothing you can't do Ain't nothing you can't do Ain't nothing you can't do Ain't nothing you can't do
