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.

I was kidding. Oily Water's my personal highlight.

Very interesting read, thank you! (probably this article deserves its own thread) :idea:

Yes, interesting article.

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

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).
