I never heard that, but I really like it as the lyric, especially considering the whole "she's your gun" thing.

I could never understand what that bit was at the end until I looked up the lyrics, but I don't think I heard anything specific. What are the backup vocals in that song? I still have no idea.

I also hear "running cray" in Charmless Man.

Even though I've told her the actual lyrics, my sister still continues to sing "I got my head, yeah, by a jumanji" in Song 2 (it makes zero sense though)

Graham posted on the old forum that his guitar noises on Beetlebum involved 'lots of hammering'... is it this?
I put me trousers on, have a cup of tea, and think about leaving the house...

Back in the 90s, I only knew their biggest hits, and it's only later, when I got into Graham's solo stuff that I ended up listening to all their albums, and when I first listened to "Repetition", I thought Damon was singing "Pikachu, let me go" instead of "Eager to let me go", and I was like "WTF???!! :roll: " before realising Pokemon didn't even exist in 1991. :lol:

Streety said the vocal sample that was used in that outro was Blur's manager Chris Morrison rambling about stuff!!

I was listening to the song with headphones today and now it sounds nothing like Swindon WTF :lol: Only my crap laptop USB speakers lol, that's why I probably didn't notice it before a few days ago.
