On reflection I'd definitely add Music is my Radar into my list. I feel it doesn't get the love it deserves :)

Another shout for Bang.

I don't really think Turn It Up is that bad either, and I've never understood the hate for Gene by Gene.

I totally agree about Bang. Why do some people seemingly dislike it so much. It's a great tune! One of my highlights on the album.

Lots of people seem to dismiss Clover Over Dover too. Always loved it personally - if only they would play it live!

I think Clover Over Dover is one of their most sublime tunes, and anyone dismissing it or whatever must be absolutely stark raving mental.

Ah yes, totally agree with those three.

I've used Dancehall for years to blow people away...people who thought they hated Blur.

This is quite difficult. Obviously, the community on here are mostly experts when it comes to Blur and if I was suggesting underrated Blur songs to a layman my list would be quite different. But some songs that aren't often talked about, or don't get much love, but that I believe would make for an interesting introduction to Blur are:

Pressure on Julian
Top Man
Fade Away
Theme From Retro
Movin' On
On Your Own
Mellow Song
Music Is My Radar
B.L.U.R.E.M.I
Bang

I would love to go to a Blur show with a setlist like that. Lovely set of tunes!
