What do you want Blur to play on the Magic Whip tour?

Anything from the last three albums would be nice. Another b-side, too.

I kind of hope they try some singles that aren't Country House or Parklife.
Stereotypes, Music Is My Radar and M.O.R being some that haven't been used in a while.
A different Think Tank song would be really cool, Battery being the obvious one because Graham would consent to playing it.

Some great tracks that have been ignored throughout the 2009-2014 gigs:

Bang
Coping
Blue Jeans
Trouble in the Message Center
Stereotypes
Best Days
He Thought of Cars
Country Sad Ballad Man
On Your Own
Death of a Party
Strange New From Another Star
Swamp Song
Battle
Music Is My Radar
Ambulance
Good Song
Caravan
Battery in Your Leg

And obviously a couple of b-sides would be nice. Tame, anyone? :P

I'd love another few short heavy ones like Globe Alone, Chinese Bombs etc. Also, would Villa Rosie, M.O.R. and Essex Dogs be out of the question?

Just thinking back to how good Oily Water sounded in 2009. I'd gladly welcome that back into the set.

Same here.

Also, having heard Damon play All Your Life solo, I'd love to hear it from the whole band. And Country Sad Ballad Man + On Your Own.

Outgoing:
Parklife
Country House
Jubilee
To The End
London Loves
Tracy Jacks

Incoming:
Stereotypes
Music Is My Radar
M.O.R
Battery In Your Leg
Fool's Day
Come Together

And of course anything from the new album would be welcome.
A couple suggested Country Sad Ballad Man, that would be cool but I don't know if Damon can sing it anymore.

What's wrong with To the End? It always sounds lovely live.
