The seymour version is more original imo. The final version reminds me of something 15 year olds would make. Cliche piano part, the first catchy bassline that could be come up with repeated throughout the song, "deep" but insubstantial lyrics, plus "atmospheric" guitar effects. It's still a good song though and I voted for it, but to me it's a little bit of a guilty pleasure.

For me in no order:

She's So High
Bang
Sing
There's No Other Way
Wear Me Down

Can't say Leisure is a bad album!

1. She's So High
2. There's No Other Way
3. Sing
4. Wear Me Down
5. Birthday

Overall I like the slower songs with hints of psychedelia on this album.

And Fool is in last place. Deservedly so! One of literally 4 Blur album tracks that I don't like. And that includes all the singles released too.

I love this game!!

There is something about Leisure that always feels very comfortable to come back to it <3 I know Damon hates it and that it is always underestimated (probably because the following albums are that great) but I can't help but appreciate it!

My choices:

She's so high
Bang
There's no other way
Come Together
Wear me down

I must be one of the few who don't choose Sing... :_D

How on earth did Explain and a studio version of Day Upon Day not make Leisure? two brilliant tracks!

Explain is fantastic, another reason to love the Bang single!

Well having seen the results I voted for the 5 most popular songs.

She's so high
Bang
Sing
There's no other way
Wear me down

I also really like Fool and Bad Day.

As others others have mentioned, it could have been a very good album if they had swapped the weaker songs for the stronger b-sides.

I've always thought Come Together was one of Blur's most underrated tunes. I fuckin love it.

I voted for Come Together 8-) The catchiest chorus from Leisure, aside from singles
