"A Little Good News" is a song recorded by Canadian country music artist Anne Murray. It was released in August 1983 as the lead single from the album of the same name, A Little Good News. The song was written by Tommy Rocco, Charlie Black, and Rory Michael Bourke and was Anne Murray's seventh number-one on the country charts. In the United States, the single went to number one for one week and spent a total of fourteen weeks on the country chart. The song also appears on Murray's 2007 album Anne Murray Duets: Friends & Legends, performed as a duet with the Indigo Girls.
In 2001, "A Little Good News" was the first song recorded by Murray's fellow Nova Scotian, Drake Jensen. The recording achieved impressive airplay throughout the Maritimes and was a favorite of CBC Radio One.
In the song, the narrator expresses despair over all of the violence and suffering she reads about in newspapers and witnesses on TV news coverage, and notes how wonderful it would be if, for just one day, the newspapers and television news anchors had nothing to report, because "nothing bad happened today".
