I live in sunny California.
I like to sit on the couch and be a potato.
I sit there and yell at the characters until my neighbors have to call and tell me to shut the fuck up
I literally just want Ezra to come out and say “you know what guys stop asking me what my songs are about I write them all in the shower I don’t even know what they mean.”
New Order - True Faith (1987)
Composed by: Bernard Albrecht / Gillian Gilbert / Peter Hook / Stephen Morris
Song Review by Ned Raggett
A tremendous single for New Order - a brilliant standalone effort and the triumphant conclusion of the peerless singles collection Substance - “True Faith” deservedly hit the charts in America, the UK and elsewhere, a marvelous valediction for a band with a core that had stuck to its guns for ten straight years. “True Faith” resisted being conventional for all that it was poppy, catchy, a radio-friendly song with its own unexpected edge. Bernard Sumner’s lyric hints at a strange desperation at play, sung with an unsure, nervous emotion (“I guess there’s just no way of knowing…I used to think that the day would never come/That my life would depend on the morning sun”). It’s the dramatic electronic drum start (memorably if cryptically matched in the heavily-screen video by mimes), Peter Hook’s strong bass line over deeper synth bass, Gillian Gilbert’s strong but not bombastic orchestral swells and keyboard chimes and more that really make everything connect, each verse building into the strong chorus with a sense of sudden anticipation. -AllMusic.Com
