Busted Make The Most Of The Time We Have With “Good One”

Busted have been looking to the past this year, but with “Good One“, they are planting themselves firmly in the here and now. 2023 has been a celebration in more ways than one. There’s the huge UK tour that they are currently on. But then there is also their Greatest Hits collection, which has found them re-recording classics with some of their friends. From Neck Deep to The Jonas Brothers, they have gone all in on making their 20th anniversary feel truly special. Though, there’s still time for something brand new. Which is where this track comes in.

Good One” feels a lot more like where Busted went when they made their comeback in 2016. Smooth and ethereal synths take the place of frantic guitars, but when you are singing about something so sentimental, it is the right way to go. It’s a song about clinging to the good times with the people that matter the most. That it doesn’t matter how long you haven’t seen somebody, the feeling doesn’t change. Old friends, new friends and everybody in between, it’s a celebration of where we have been and where we will go.

Charlie Simpson had this to say about it:

“Good one is all about the nostalgia of friends not seeing each other for a long time and making the most of the moments you get with each other so it seemed particularly appropriate for us to release around our greatest hits tour, when we are seeing so many faces that we haven’t seen for such a long time”.

Busted are currently on the road on their massive Greatest Hits tour, with support coming from the legendary Hanson. Here are all the dates.
