"All Right" is a song written and recorded by American singer-songwriter Christopher Cross. It was released in January 1983 as the lead single from the album, Another Page. On the heels of his Grammy winning first album, [1] and following his #1 hits "Sailing" and "Arthur's Theme (The Best that You Can Do)" expectations were strong enough for this first single from his second album to allow "All Right" to debut on Billboard Magazine's hot 100 at the high-position of #29. [2] It was the fifth-highest debuting single of the 1980s ranking behind Michael Jackson's "Thriller" (No. 20), USA for Africa's "We Are the World" (No. 21), Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson's "Say Say Say" (No. 26), and Men at Work's "Overkill" (No. 28). Unfortunately, "All Right" -- which featured former Doobie Brothers member Michael McDonald on background vocals [3]-- did not repeat Cross's previous success, and petered out at #12,[4] just outside the top 10.

"All Right" was featured in the NBA footage bloopers during the 1982–83 season.[5] . It was also featured in the opening video of The Apple Worldwide Developers Conference 2017.[6]
