"Doing All Right" was written by Brian May and Tim Staffell while in the pre-Queen band, Smile and is a track on Queen's eponymous debut album.

The song changes many times throughout, from light pop music to acoustic guitars and even contains a section that could only be referred to as heavy metal. This is one of the few Queen songs to feature Brian May on the piano.

He also played his old Hairfred acoustic guitar on this track and on later tracks such as "White Queen (As It Began)" and "Jealousy". The band played this song as early as 1970, and it was notable as the band's first song Freddie Mercury played live on the piano for.

Staffell sang it when it was a Smile song, and Mercury tried to sing in the same manner when it became a Queen song. Even when it became a Queen song Staffell got credit and still receives royalties to this day, and a share of the profit which comes from sales of Queen.
