tracks that blur HAVE to play at festivals

Girls & Boys
Song 2
The Universal

i would say that everything else is open for rotation

surprised that popscene and end of a century seem disposable
and very surprised that the god awful stereotypes still remains

and that on your own, a top 5 hit, hasnt appeared since... 2000 meltdown?

Dave just likes Song 2 because it's his most memorable drum track ;)

You think so? maybe for the "outsiders on blur´s music" but i think Dave had done a superb job in all blur´s songs...love the drums particularly in Battle, and oily water.

Yes, interesting article.

As is the one linked to on the same page, about dance culture in the Britpop period:

The episode where Alex appears on (and IIRC wins) Celebrity Blockbusters is on Challenge tonight at 8pm apparently.

I'm currently sitting outside at Bier Market in Ottawa, where they have the radio on a pop station, and Lonesome Street just came on! A nice surprise on a great day in a beautiful city.

Damon is quoted on the Wiki article for Cher's Believe, calling it "brilliant". And on the page for Disco, Girls & Boys and Entertain Me are mentioned as one in a few songs exemplifying how "disco and its legacy became more accepted by music artists and listeners alike" a good time after disco had finished but before the 2000s (the others mentioned are Pulp's Disco 2000, Deee-Lite's Groove is in the Heart, and, as I added, U2's Lemon).
