"Land Of Make Believe" is a song written by Andy Hill and Peter Sinfield.

Originally recorded by Bucks Fizz, It reached No.1 in the UK in early 1982 - the second single by the band to do so. Despite the apparent sugar-coated style of the song, Sinfield later claimed it was a subtle attack on Margaret Thatcher and her government's policy at the time.

The Fizz recorded their version of the song in 2016 with adjusted festive lyrics. This was the first collaboration with Mike Stock, with whom the band would enjoy a long and successful association.

The limited edition CD sold out on pre-release. This was followed by a digital download version.
