Really? Thought 'I Broadcast' was a likeable but unexceptional slice of slightly cheesy punk-pop, the sort of thing that might work if you're 26 in 1994, but doesn't sit so well in 2015, regardless of your age. For me, Blur didn't become a great band because of 'Jubilee', 'Globe Alone', 'Crazy Beat', 'BLUREMI' or 'Movin On', they became a great band in spite of that sort of thing.

And 'New World Towers' - maybe the lyrics and the vocal melody fall short of take-off, but musically it's pretty beautiful. If you want to sell millions in your 40s and 50s, elegance is probably a better way forward than bratishness. If bratishness is a word. Brattiness, maybe?

New World Towers

I think this is a good song, but my least favourite on the album by a fair distance.

The first four choices should be fairly straight forward for me, but will get difficult after that.

Can't believe the votes for Go Out! :o :shock:

If it were anyone else their age doing I Broadcast, I would've gotten the vibe of one of those old musicians that keep trying to be "hip" and "cool" and energetic and refusing to age, to be honest. Damon narrowly avoided that, he's not trying he legit is. But I Broadcast didn't work for me at all. I liked it live but the studio version disappointed me, it's the only track on TMW I'd only listen to if I'm not paying attention. The next track I'd choose is Mirrorball, and then New World Towers.

I just don't enjoy it as much as the other. It's very trademark Blur

So, let me get this straight. We're supposed to vote for our least favorite track, and then after the first round ends, the song with most votes gets eliminated, and then the voting starts all over again. Is that it? When does the first round end?

Anyway, my vote goes to Ice Cream Man.

GHOST SHIP

I know that vote goes against the grain, but it's genuinely my least favourite song on the album.
