been listening to a lot of damon material lately, blur gorillaz and everything in between...
posting this here so as not to disrupt the lovefest surrounding magic whip on the main page

i wondered, what are your favourite songs that damon has appeared on outside of blur

My 4 favourites are:

Kingdom of Doom (TG,TB & TQ)
80s Life (TG, TB & TQ)
The Good, the Bad & the Queen (TG, TB & TQ)
Don't get lost in Heaven (Gorillaz)

P.S.: Does "Superman"(Seymour) count as "outside Blur"?

Let's face it he just is the best (British) songwriter of the past 25 years. If not longer.

sad seeing no love for dr dee and monkey: journey to the west. sure the latter doesn't have any vocals from damon, but he composed everything on there and is a highlight of his career... both albums showcase what he is capable of outside of pop music.
The Moon Exatled is definitely up there with his "best of ".. sublime

i still dream of seeing or hearing both actual "operas"

His best song away from Blur is - by a country mile in my view - Hong Kong.

+1

the radio station disappeared
music turned into thin air
the dj was the last to leave
she had well conditioned hair
t'was beautiful though nothing really was there
