"C'mon People (We're Making It Now)" is a song by English singer-songwriter Richard Ashcroft and is the tenth track on his 2000 album Alone with Everybody. The song was also released on September 11, 2000 as the third single from that album in the United Kingdom (see 2000 in British music). The single peaked at #21 in the UK Singles Chart.

C'mon People (We're Making It Now) was originally written by Richard Ashcroft as a demo track for The Verve's studio album Urban Hymns, but the song did not make the final album.

2006 Charity single[edit]

In April 2006, Ashcroft told the Manchester Evening News that he intended to record a new version of "C'mon People (We're Making It Now)" as a charity single in support of England's bid in the 2006 FIFA World Cup. Reportedly the song was to be released by Parlophone on June 12, 2006 in the UK, with the catalog number CDR6706, but never materialised (see 2006 in British music). He had told the paper that "In the next few days I’m going to try and do an alternative football song and raise money for charity. I’m playing in a football match to raise money for Bobby Moore’s charity and I’d like to split the money I raise from the song between that charity and the Teenage Cancer Trust. I want to do some good on this planet. I want to write a song, which actually mentions the team and the people involved. I never thought I’d do one, but I like to be the alternative. I think it will be a version of C’mon People called C’mon England."[1]
