Best Lasts Forever

Album: Bread And Circuses (2011)
  • The song features a spoken word intro by '60s counter-culture activist, poet and ex-MC5 manager John Sinclair. "He was recording an album with Youth and was just hanging about the studio," recalled The View vocalist Kyle Falconer to the NME. "He was freestyling and coming up with lines and we were like, 'We've got to get him on this.'"
  • Falconer explained the song's inspiration to the NME: "It's easy to sit in your armchair and eat crisps, watch soap operas and let life pass you by. It's hard to make something precious, to achieve creative goals, you have to be driven. This song was inspired by the thought that if you put the effort in then it could be possible to create something everlasting."
