Nigel Joseph Elohim from Ireland I'm Nigel woop happy days ;)
Gwynhwyfar from Massachusetts, UsaI've loved this song for a long time! Lots of young people can identify with it. Lately, it's being used in a show called "Bandersnatch", part of the Black Mirror series. Every time the young video game designer gets hauled off in the caar by his father, this song plays! It turns out that the father and his therapist are controlling him, rather like The Truman Show, but through a computer game in which he has to make choices...but they're all fake.
Rachel from ColoradoI relate to this song as a parent of a teen on the autism spectrum who's reaching adulthood and needs assistance. IEPS, therapy sessions, and work programs all part of the planning process. "We're only making plans for Nigel, we only want what's best for him. We're only making plans for Nigel, Nigel just needs a helping hand. And if young Nigel says that he happy, he must be happy in his work" In this case "work" is "world" for our Nigel.
Chefpaulo from PennsylvaniaI always had a different take on this. It sounds like two parents talking to an admissions director at an elite school and trying to have their intellectually challenged/autistic son accepted. Nigel is happy in his world but needs a helping hand. Just saying.
Rebekah from Mcalpin, FlShucks! I thought sure this song was about Nigel Farage and his fight for true liberty in the UK & the world against the one world banker enslavement hell bent on destroying sovereignty worldwide & enslaving you & your children's children's children to perpetual war & debt profiting only a central demonic banker government & poison pushing murderous global corporations...
Thegripester from Wellington, New ZealandListen to this song, then listen to The Police's song De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da of a year later. What's even more amazing is that Sting never got sued (even though I'm sure the resemblance is unintentional).
Amandass from Buckley, WaThis is a cool song, Primus' version was the first I heard of this song
Callie from Brauni, Otheri have always loved this song... it became even more special lately cuz i met someone really special, and XTC is his favorite band, and he named his son "nigel"... so now it's even more of a favorite ;)
Kacey Musgraves originally offered "Follow Your Arrow" to her friend Katy Perry. However, Perry thought Musgraves should record the song herself as it seemed, "like something that you would totally say."
