Places you've heard a Blur song 2.0

Post by JAIME » 05 Aug 2015, 21:59

This thread already existed in the old official Blur forum (R.I.P.), so I decided to continue with it :D

Yesterday, I heard Beetlebum 8-) in a "Coffee with legs" (typical Chilean coffeeshop where you can drink a cup of coffee, tea, coke, soda or whatever non-alcoholic drink, where all the waitresses are beautiful young girls in bikinis or sexy clothes :mrgreen: :D ).

Funny you mention this, I'm on vacation in San Antonio and I heard blur three times here! (once in a restaurant, twice on a rock radio) All song 2 of course, but it counts!

I heard Mr Tembo in a pub tonight until it was changed about a minute through to Sweet Disposition by The Temper Trap :evil:

The last odd place I recall hearing a Blur song was when a busker fiddlist was placing The Universal.

When a local Sainsbury's Cafe opened some years ago, and I went there, the first song I heard was Out of Time. Lol.

Songs from the Magic Whip are on in my lo(o-o-o-o-)cal Co-op all the time, most recently Ong Ong.

Now if only they'd stock the fucking Ice Cream :evil:

A tiny coffee shop near my university was playing the whole think tank album the other day. Got into a chat with the owner about how much we both love the band/album

Blink!! It's on high street. It's literally the size of a big wardrobe, no seats or anything can fit inside. They are usually pretty busy and don't have any music playing so was a nice surprise to be alone in there with think tank blasting in the background!

Just heard Lonesome Street while eating at Bier Market in Ottawa yesterday! This isn't recent, but last year I was at a Sonic Drive In and Rhinestone Eyes came on the radio! That was a real surprise and treat :D

I worked at a coffee house for a couple of years and flooded the itunes catalog with Damon's entire discogragpy. So if you're ever in the Mudhouse in Crozet, Virginia, you're bound to hear some Blur. I frequent the place and hear at least one Blur song every time. Yesterday I went in, and as soon as I entered, 'Coffee and Tv' started playing. A pretty fitting choices for my arrival. XD

Last night in a bar, they played Country House, Girls & Boys and There's No Other Way. Also, they played songs by Pulp, Suede, Radiohead, The Smiths, Franz Ferdinand, Arctic Monkeys, Gorillaz, etc. :P
