I think if Blur had released "more of the same" in 1997 it could have brought a decline in chart fortunes, esp. given that by the later part of that year Britpop was starting to fade.

Re: Most Oasis sounding Blur song?

Agree that 'She's So High' could be Suede and that 'Stereotypes' and 'Oily Water' could be Oasis.

Re: The Great Escape

Back to Chemical World, I feel this song would have really benefited from NOT being a single. The weight of expectation on a song once it becomes a single means I judge it in a different way. Imagine 'Coping' or 'Fade Away' had been singles, I don't think there would be so much love for those songs...
