They are not b-sides, Tom. This is strictly reserved to b-sides. We could make a Fan Club singles or non-album tracks poll later on, if you like.
You killjoy you! :P

1. Swallows in the Heatwave
2. All Your Life
3. Polished Stone

It was hard choosing because I had to leave out Bustin + Dronin and Woodpigeon Song. My favorite has to be Swallows though, one of the best Blur tracks of ALL time!

1. Swallows in the Heatwave (saw it live at Brixton!)
2. Get out of Cities
3. Bustin' and Dronin' (Would love to hear this at Hyde Park, just to see the confused look on everyone's faces!)

Hard to pick 3. Best B-Side era by a country mile!
