Bought this in the late 90's after hearing it a few times on 'The Evening Session'. Unlike their later and better known work, this is pleasingly rough around the edges. Who would have known they'd become so big? "Starfighter Pilot" was the fourth single released by Snow Patrol, from their debut album 'Songs for Polarbears'. The song was written by Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody and the music was composed by Lightbody and other two members, Mark McClelland and Jonny Quinn."
