Another new (for me) Blur's song

Post by Rosie » 27 Aug 2015, 11:55

I've just seen a tweet by Damon in which he links the song Colours, covered from Electric Wave Bureau for the soundrack of Broken.
I've never heard this song before, have you?
It's wonderful, int EWB version and also in the original Blur version!
How many gems have this band hidden?? They are wonderful, love, love them!

This is from 'Think Tank' era - I think it was released as a fan-club single or that sort of thing. It is really an awesome song - I have no idea why it was not included in the deluxe version of the '21' remaster :(
RIP Mr. Okay (April 2015 - March 2016)

Yeah, I love Colours, and I like to play it on guitar. It was released on August 2003. http://www.vblurpage.com/discography/fa ... olours.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Another "hidden gem" in my opinion is Pleasant Education.

I love Colours, one of the best tunes out of TT era. It was originally part of the record, wasn't it? I remember some weird image with different symbols and numbers assigned to them which were supposed to stand for every song on the album.

Forgot to mention this cause I forgot the movie title. My wife was watching this movie late one night and something woke me up and I was hearing the song. I was like :o What's a cover of a Blur demo doing in a movie???

Yes it was a fan club only release and it had the symbols on the cover.

hahaha that has happened to me before, that a song from an artist I like.,has woken me up because it´s on the telly.

Broken made me cry so much when I watched it, it´s a good movie but it made me a bit :| to see that the credit of the song was not to Blur

I believe it was even played during the TT tour?
