This Is the One (4:58)

Cover of The Stone Roses

From The Stone Roses and 14 other releases

This is played at the Old Trafford stadium when the Manchester United team walk onto the pitch. Vocalist Ian Brown is a lifelong United supporter. He told The Observer Sports Monthly: “I wrote that tune in 1986 when I was on the dole, and there was no way I could have known that 20 years later United would be coming on to the pitch to it. It still gets me every time. It’s an amazing feeling. I’ve got three season tickets now in the East Stand, the old K Stand, with my two oldest sons, and they buzz off it. I laugh and say, ‘Well, the PRS is probably paying for the tickets.’” (Source This Is The One Songfacts).
