Weller has good taste! I can't wait to read Q's entire section on Damon at 50.

Definitely one of the best tracks on the album, potential single material. At least would have been a better choice than Go Out.

I definitely agree w/you on that... "Ghost Ship" is a very special track indeed and Blur and management really erred there in recognizing the full potential this track really had, but certainly wasn't the first time... "Bugman" and "Blue Jeans" both promptly come to mind and they also missed out w/"Cowboy Song".....

cowboy song rules but it's just 1 chord and damon does that thing where he just makes shit up as he sings. not quite a hit.
