I was around 14 when I first listened to Turn It Up, and I used to think Kazoo was a reference to the Flinstones character. :D

That'd be awesome! To be honest I'm surprised they haven't played it live already in 2009 or 2012. In fact the 100 Club show in 2012 would have been perfect for Blue Jeans as the band also played Bugman, which they hadn't played previously.

Does anyone have an mp3 of that Bugman recording? Would love to hear it.

Bloody brilliant performance too. I love Damon's alternate take on the chorus. The na na na's I mean. Great stuff.

Blue Jeans for me. Great song, It was my mine and my first girlfriend's 'song', so happy memories!

After that:

For Tomorrow
Chemical World
Popscene (I have the US import - well over £20 from Virgin Megastore back in the day!)
On the slow boat to Lantau through misty seas...

I remember vividly hearing Intermission for the first time when I was 8 or 9 years old. It blew my mind!

And, because I own the American CD, special mention to Popscene and When the Cows Come Home.

Almost making the top 5 were: Coping, Villa Rosie, Colin Zeal, and Advert.
