"Everything's Alright" is a song written and performed by The Mojos. It was released as a single in 1964, peaking at #9 in the UK.[2]

Unusually for the time, both sides of the record were written by the band. Everything's Alright is credited to all five members of the band (Nicky Crouch, Bob Konrad, Stu James, Keith Karlson and "Simon Stavely", a pseudonym for keyboardist Terence O'Toole). Only Karlson, James and Stavely are listed as writers of the b-side, "Give Your Lovin' To Me".[1]

An EP titled The Mojos, with "Everything's Alright" as the opening track, was released later in the year, backed with versions of American rhythm and blues tracks "I Got My Mojo Working" (a hit for Muddy Waters), "The One Who Really Loves You" (Smokey Robinson and the Miracles) and "Nobody But Me" (The Isley Brothers).

David Bowie recorded a version of "Everything's Alright" for his Pin Ups album in 1973, which featured Aynsley Dunbar on drums, who incidentally was a member of The Mojos, but only after the "Everything's Alright" single.
