Oh boy, this is going to be tough. So many great and memorable tracks.

1. Badhead
2. Parklife
3. End of a Century
4. Trouble in the Message Centre
5. This Is a Low

Gutted to leave Girls & Boys and To the End out, but what can you do.

PS: I enabled the option to change votes, so if someone votes a track by mistake, you can change that.

This doesn't get any easier does it? :? :lol:

Anyway, I've gone with:

End of a Century
Badhead
Trouble in the Message Centre
Clover Over Dover
This is a Low

I feel REALLY bad not including Girls & Boys or Parklife, they define this album, but I wanted others a tiny bit more. I also wanted to include To The End. Well, and most of the others too. But there you go, that's the game I guess.

Trouble In The Message Centre (love new wavey Blur, always play this and Threadneedle Street together)
Girls and Boys (what's not to love)
This Is A Low (their masterpiece)
Jubilee (love this on record, I've met people like this)
End of a Century (pretty much the perfect pop song)

For me (Clive) Clover Over Dover is one of their most underrated songs. It's fucking sublime.

I think Magic America is a bit shit and I'm amazed it has any votes.

+1 to everything here. Magic America's the weakest track on Parklife for me.

Clover Over Dover is just beautiful. I love how Graham's guitar fits with the bassline and the keyboards. Lovely instrumental work there.
