The Pastels - I'm Alright With You


The Pastels formed in Glasgow, Scotland during 1982. In the 80's, Scotland had a pretty significant indie scene, also spawning the Jesus and Mary Chain, The Vaselines, Orange Juice, and Teenage Fanclub. Also, along with the Field Mice, and Beat Happening, they were one of the most significant twee bands of the 80's.

For the song, there's not too much to say. It's pleasant, reassuring, and catchy. For a day like this, that's all you need.

The Pastels - I'm Alright With You

"If you are feeling down
And want some reason to come around
You know it won’t be wrong
And you are upside down

If you begin at the end
Or halfway through or somewhere else
It makes some kind of sense
When you are my best friend

I’m alright with you

If you are inside outside
Some people might call you stupid
I don’t care what they said
When you are by my side
If you are back to front
And find your mind somewhat absent
You better hang on to what you got
It’s everything that I want

I’m alright with you

You know I’d cross the desert wastes for you
Watch the sun burn up the sky
You know I’d wait a thousand years for you
I love you ‘til there’s nothing left"


Now the video for "Crawl Babies," another song from Up For a Bit With the Pastels:
