Blur - Blur: favourite b-side poll

Post by Vern » 15 Jul 2015, 18:08

It's been done before, plenty of times, but I can't think of a good enough reason not to do so again. :D

Bustin' + Dronin' gets my vote.

On this note, who knew that the only place to get Polished Stone on vinyl is the Sound As A Pound promo compilation put out by Parlophone. I have it. :)

Bustin' + Dronin' for me, narrowly beating out All Your Life. I've always found Swallows a bit overrated.

I actually have no love for Swallows in the Heatwave. All Your Life for me.

It has been a difficult choice between swallows and all your life, but in the end I went for swallows.

"Woodpigeon Song" for me. "All Your Life" is nice, but the fact that it's also actually "Oh! You Pretty Things!" in the verses does my head in. I usually find it easy to look the other way when songs sound similar, but here it bothers me.
