Official Video for Fightstar's Mercury Summer take from the album "Be Human" which is out 20.04.09
"Mercury Summer" is the second single from Fightstar's third studio album, Be Human. It was released on 6 April 2009.
Frontman Charlie Simpson said that the inspiration for this song came from one of his favourite movies, The Shawshank Redemption, and the dream of the lead character, Andy.
“ The inspiration for this song came from one of our favorite films of all time, The Shawshank Redemption, and the character Andy Dufresne's dreams of reaching his paradise Zihuatanejo.
"At the base of it, it's really just a love song but it interprets the story of a couple on a journey to find their own nirvana away from all of the consumerist bulls*** that surrounds us in our day to day lives. ” Bassist Dan Haigh has stated that the original song was meant to include a sample of Morgan Freeman's dialogue from the film- the line "I hope the sea is as blue as our dream"- but, in his words, "Hollywood screwed that up for us. We just couldn't get it cleared."
