Post by rich » 18 Feb 2015, 23:23

can anyone guess what it is?

This Is A Low.


I've probably misheard my fair share of Blur lyrics over the years, but I can't remember what any of them are right now.

The opening line of Bang sounds like "Sitting in an STD...".
Which is really, really weird.

I used to think Damon sang "and we all go hot potato at the disco" in On Your Own instead of "Well we all go happy day glow in the discos" haha

"so going out Is your best bet, and finger yourself to sleep"

Much as I like Blur, a lot of their lyrics were fairly banal. And Noel Gallagher was no better either.... :roll: :lol:

"What a perfect dick...day" :lol: :mrgreen:

"Meandering through this and that you are suspected pregned..." :shock:
"So barbecue at Villa Rosie every night, so tasty..." :mrgreen:

"Girls who are Boys who like Boys to be Girls too too Boys like the Girls too too Girls like they're Boys".

"Finding ways to stay so low..."

"Colombia is in top garage..." :lol:

"It's sun it's sun it's sunny it's sun it's sun it's sunny...." (Beetlebum ending)

I don't remember others misheard lyrics right now.

"der tag fängt an" (German for "the day begins") instead of "get nothing done" in beetlebum. also, this seemed perfectly logical to me at the time, seeing damon had used german lyrics in parklife ("vorsprung durch technik, you know").. :roll: :lol:
"I'm bizarrely a [...] lawyer, and that takes up every spare second of the day -- forever."
