Alison Stewart tells why 'Just Fine' is the Best Song in the World Today

Mary J. Blige knows from miserable, and she knows from glory. She runs down the journey from the former to the latter on her new CD, Growing Pains.

Today, host Alison Stewart taps "Just Fine" from that record as the Best Song in the World Today. Sometimes, Alison says, you just have to look around say, you know, this life thing is all right.

Excellent song for today and great comparison between Kanye West's song and a seeming (at least in the moment) response from Mary J. Blige.

I totally agree with Alison! I can't not be happy when I'm listening to this song and realizing that regardless of any daily stress and worries, my life's just fine.
