Re: Out of time, under the radar...

Did it not have a radio edit!? Thought it would have gone once round and in on the radio edit instead of the full 45 seconds! No wonder haha.

Re: Out of time, under the radar...

Thanks for that explanation Neal! Very insightful. I suppose then it boils down to the fact that it would have been the first proper single from the first full length studio album in 4 years so the initial spike in interest would have seen the single shoot up the charts, but it wouldn't have attract...

Re: Out of time, under the radar...

See what you're saying Doug about it maybe not receiving continued airplay over the years because of how outlandish a musical arrangement it is for a top 10 single, but sometimes that means songs get more recurring attention, like the likes of Paranoid Android and Viva La Vida... It's a shame it has...

Out of time, under the radar...

I must apologise for the regularity of my posting of new topics, as one of the more relatively younger members on here and only really becoming a huge fan of Blur at 15(which was the year of the reunion), there's a lot of their history I wasn't conscious of while it was unfolding. When 'Out of time'...

Other guitarists who could have done the Think Tank tour.

We are all incredibly thankful that Graham returned home in the end and we were given reunion tours and a more than worthy comeback album with the full line up in tact with The Magic Whip, but for a bit of fun - and because it's often a tour that has been criticized - who do you think would have bee...

Re: The Great Escape: APPRECIATION THREAD

... Might add that at the time of getting into TGE, a Parklife Cd also kicked around the car and me and my friend would struggle to remember what songs were on which album because we didn't have the covers. Even now I have to think for a second what songs on the second half of both albums go where s...

Re: The Great Escape: APPRECIATION THREAD

Also the album that got me into Blur. Me and my friend used to skip school and drive around in his bashed up BMW smoking pot and listening to old Red Hot Chili Peppers bootlegs, then one day after his sister had borrowed the car, TGE was in the CD player and we got in it one morning and that intro t...

Re: Damon's thoughts On Radical Islamic Terrorism?

I'm sure if you sat down and had a conversation with Damon about terrorist attacks he would undoubtedly express some degree of anger, but where the anger would be focused is anyone's guess. It's not as simple as blaming a single president or single prime minister, the Iraq war was just an example of...

Re: Damon's thoughts On Radical Islamic Terrorism?

I would say that Damon would likely be of the stance that these horrific acts of evil have in some way come as a result and stemmed from America, Britain and other countries in the western world's occupation of troops in Middle Eastern countries, most notably the invasion of Iraq(which Damon furious...

Crowded House

Anyone else on here a big Crowded House fan? I think they are genuinely one of the most underrated bands ever. A band that maybe suffered from having their hits only being one particular style of a diverse musical pallet across an expansive, overlooked discography. Have always thought there were hug...

Re: Arctic Monkeys

Arctic monkeys have very much being my coming of age band. When 'Whatever people say I am...' came out, I was 13 and in my first year of high school and the albums soundtracked the romantic milestones and house-parties throughout the rest of my formative years. Never been my favourite band, I can sw...

Look inside america

Just wondering if anyone had any info as to when this song was written? It has to be hands down the most Britpop sounding song on S/T. It's more TGE than TGE B-sides! It's strange that out of the trilogy, TGE was the only album not to feature an 'America' song but then the next album did and it's th...

Re: unpopular blur opinions

That "Optigan 1" is a solid album closer...I think it concludes "13" so brilliantly.....It's like the dawning of a brand new day upon each and every listen! To me.. it's the light at the end of the tunnel...just has that type of impact on me! One of my favorite pieces of music on 13. It's like Sgt....

Re: unpopular blur opinions

I agree with King Louie that Y&H definitely wouldn't sound out of place on TMW.

I can see why some people might be put off by the seasick guitars and woozy, Japanese synths, but at it's core, Yuko and Hiro is a wonderfully sombre ballad!

Re: Blur's setlists going forward

Yes, yes, yes! Ambulance needs a go with Graham! It's totally puzzled me that they haven't given it a look in since 2008.
