The English Way (3:33)

Cover of Be Human

From Be Human and 1 other release

The English Way

Previous singles ‘Floods’ (with its nod to Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth) and ‘Death Car’ with its perfectly pitched combination of the political and the personal, showed that Fightstar would not flinch from dealing with difficult issues. The English Way deftly handles patriotism and national identity while delivering a leg twitchingly compelling sing along moment. Simpson says: “Everyone’s ashamed of being English. I wanted to capture a positive appreciation of our country.”

    The breakdown at the end needs to last a lot longer.

    The orchestral elements they included add so much to this song, and the album as a whole.

    Finally got my signed copy of this. The b-side is just as good, and supposed to be on their next album anyway.
