"Something Good Can Work" is the first single by the Irish rock band Two Door Cinema Club. The single was first released for promotion, but was released again on 7 April 2009[1] after signing with Kitsuné Music.[2] The music video, which was filmed in Gran Canaria (Canary Islands), has amassed over fourteen million views on YouTube.[3]

"Something Good Can Work" appeared as the first track on Kitsuné's compilation Kitsuné Maison Compilation 7.[4] The version on this compilation is different from the final album version, featuring slightly different vocals and a more guitar-oriented sound. There is also a different music video for this version.[5]

Both "Something Good Can Work" and "Do You Want It All?" appear on Two Door Cinema Club's album Tourist History.[6]

Usage in media[edit]

An instrumental version of the song was used in episodes of the popular British sitcom The Inbetweeners. The song was also used in the 2011 film Chalet Girl,[7][8] in the pilot of Covert Affairs,[9] in one episode of MTV series I Used to Be Fat.

The Twelves Remix version of "Something Good Can Work" was featured in the 2012 video games SSX and Forza Horizon.
