  1. Sorry Coxon purists, but my favorite Blur song is ‘Out of Time’

  2. It changes.
    Right now it is Under The Westway
    probably because it is new

  3. Coffee & TV… though, that is a very tough call to make.

  4. “Out of Time”.

  5. Black Book

    Love those Bsides.


    Ok, now that I’ve gotten that out of the way…

    I could pick any number of songs, but I always go back to “To The End”, as good of a ballad as any that came out of the Britpop era…

  7. Under the Westway

  8. My favorite Blur song is: Clover Over Dover

  9. We’ve Got A File On You.

  10. Actually kind of don’t like Blur, but I’ve always wanted to win something, so what the hell. Song 2.

  11. It’s a tough call, but I’ve always had a soft spot for Good Song on Think Tank.

  12. Tracy Jacks

  13. Too many good ones. I’ll go with “High Cool” – best of luck everyone

  14. I love a song called – I’m Fine Its a b-side on the pop scene 12″ every once in a while it gets slapped on my turn table. Who knew Blur had a shoe gaze phase.

    It doesn’t sound like anything else they ever wrote. I also went to the same University as the band and often wonder if Damon wrote this song whistling it down one of the corridors at Goldsmiths.

  15. And yes it is cruel to pick out just one, they were literally the first band I got into.

  16. Battle (track 7 from “13″)

  17. “On Your Own”

  18. Coffee and TV

  19. Yes, very difficult to pick just one so I’ll go with “Death of a Party.”

  20. I’m a pretty big fan of “Tender”. Additionally, I’d kill for this box set.

  21. Trimm Trabb

  22. you’re so great

  23. End of a century

  24. There’s No Other Way

  25. This Is A Low, definitely

  26. Tender. Huge backing choirs never cease to move me.

  27. “Yuko & Hiro” last track on The Great Escape – such a sad tune in context (and strangely ahead of its time on the whole Apple/Foxconn thing), yet it sounds beautiful – especially the backing vocals/spoken word stuff in Japanese – for a band continually miscast as a great singles group, this one always stands out for me.

  28. The Universal

  29. I’m not afraid of being predictable, cos we’ll all have the same answer in the end… “On Your Own”

  30. Clover Over Dover

  31. Strange News From Another Star

  32. There are almost too many to name but if I had to pick one, “No Distance Left To Run”…

  33. No Distance Left to Run

  34. Out of Time.
