I wasn't waiting until someone said one I forgot. Yuko & Hiro! Its OK but not great.

Also It Could Be You is quite shit.

Top Man's nice though. On Your Own is great! And Battle... etc. etc.

Oh and Top Man's great imo, For Tomorrow dated? in what way and by who? its a timeless song of course.

Yeah sorry Tom but got to disagree - For Tomorrow, This is a Low and Out of Time are three of my favourite Blur songs. I think you're being deliberately obtuse to expect Battle at any gigs ahead of those!

Topman is shit, but is not overrated in this forum. Most part of us don't like that one I think.

Battle eclipses all three of those songs! Like I said though, Out Of Time was a tough pick because I LOVE it but there are far better songs on Think Tank that don't get the recognition they deserve (Ambulance, Brothers and Sisters).

This Is A Low just doesn't do it for me, I don't care whether it's a big Blur song or not. For Tomorrow as well. Just something about them that doesn't ring my bell, I've always thought they were overrated. Especially now as Damon can't hit the high notes in This Is A Low.

I think Ambulance is hugely overrated on here. I think it's pants.

For Tomorrow is a stone cold classic. Shut up. :P
Battle is awesomeness in musical form.

However:
Get Out of Cities
Swallows in the Heatwave

I'm sorry, what's the deal with those songs? Distinctly average tunes.

After sitting down and going through each album, here is my final list. Album tracks only.

For Tomorrow
Yeah yeah yeah it's one of their biggest songs and it's nice enough but it's as dated as hell now and kind of embarrassing when they play this and leave songs like Battle at home. Overrated.

This Is A Low
Same reasons I think For Tomorrow is overrated and gets far too much love than it should. Overrated.

Yuko & Hiro
NEVER EVER EVER seen what attracts people to this song. Filler track, boring, why did it make the album over songs like The Man Who Left Himself and A Song?! Overrated.

Swamp Song
I don't dislike it but everyone seems to love it for some reason. Overrated.

No Distance Left To Run
A nice song but kind of boring and ruins the great album that is 13. 9/10 album but could have been a 10/10 without this song (and Swamp Song). WAYYYY overrated.

Out Of Time
I almost didn't put this one but I do think it's overrated. I love it but there are far better songs on Think Tank that hardly get a mention. Overrated.
