Re: Papa Roach cover Song 2

Song 2 gets covered very often, but what about other Blur songs? I was interested the other day to find out which recording artists (not just fans covering songs on youtube) covered a Blur song, OTHER than Song 2, whether live or in the studio. I found some weird, bizarre and sometimes decent stuff ...

Wow, 30 years. Blur are slowly entering into "ancient" territory.
Just think what was exactly 30 years old in 1990 - not even first single by The Beatles.

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

I agree, I know where you are coming from. It seems mainly of interest to the die-hard faithful. Yes, you've put that far more succinctly than I was able to. I should also add that there's nothing intrinsically wrong with that, I just wonder how much of a life span that has. What is the alternative...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

hate to say that but all three parts are rather weak, uninspiring. Song Machine is going downhill in my opinion. MB, Desole, Aires - all great. But then? Nothing much to shout about. Pac-Man? I quite like Damon part, but Schoolboy´s is just nondescript for me (dont get me wrong, I like rap parts in...

Re: The Jaded Hearts Club

I have listened to a few of the tracks already and just don't really get the attraction. Too many ego's wanting to be centre of attention for my liking, Graham in my opinion is the more talented member of this group, but doesn't come acros like he gets the credit he deserves, but I guess I am biast...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

How many listens on Spotify it has? And how do you know that? On Spotify the Magic Whip has a combined 90.3 million streams. (12 songs plus the bonus Y'all Doomed). So ignoring Y'all Doomed, it has an average of 7.5 million streams per song https://chartmasters.org/spotify-streaming-numbers-tool/?a...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

*awaiting usual Sledge Hammer comment about how Damon is wasting time with Gorillaz and should return making music with Blur* Isn't he? No. The sad truth is that there are not as many people interested in hearing a Blur album than there is a Gorillaz album. Damon's songs and ideas will reach more p...
