Well, it should be a song which could fit on every blur album. The only ones I can think of which wouldn't feel out of place on any album are He Thought Of Cars and maybe Sing.

he thought of cars is probably the most definitive song you're right, would sound great as part of any record

Yeah, He Thought of Cars is a good one. It's a slow, melancholy song but features great guitar work from Graham and bass lines from Alex.

I think Look Inside America is another very "Blur" song.

Oh come on. They're great b-sides but nothing compared to the cultural impact of The Universal, Coffee & TV etc.

i never said anything about cultural impact, i simply think those songs would fit beautifully on any blur album and would make a fine introduction track to blur

Lol Blur's back catalogue is so extensive and diverse that this is probably one of the most impossible question to answer about a band of all time.

That's a good call. Lyrics about voyeurs, sugary tea, and exhibitionists, very Damon. A busy guitar accompaniment thing going on that's trademark Coxon, and above all it's just a really good tune. From the early years I think there's no better song to pick that says "this is who we are and what we can do."
