According to "Black book" - never played live.

I'd love to hear "Theme From An Imaginary Film" live version...

Clover Over Dover is probably the song I'd most want to hear live out of all the unplayed ones.

They never played this one live? There must be a reason for this. :?

One Born Every Minute was written by Damon straight after For Tomorrow, or not?

It was once described by a band member as being too difficult to replicate live, how/why escapes me, I think that was in 3862 Days, but again i might be wrong on that too...

If they put actual lyrics down to those pretty harmonies I wouldn't be complaining if they played it live :lol:

Yeah , it really makes me laugh every time I listen to it .
I think we should start a petition for Blur to come back just to play those songs they never played live before (especially "Clover Over Dover") :lol:

Sorry for digging up an old post.
I just finished my transcription for Clover Over Dover, and there's nothing really difficult to replicate on stage. I have my doubts that the harpsichord part was actually played by Damon on the record, but hey, they have additional musicians for keyboards live, so that's obviously not the snag.
Guitarwise, it's achievable: there are three different guitars, but more or less blendable into one (though if you play the lick on the chorus, you miss the rhythm part underneath which is so gorgeously Grahamesque).

So what your saying is it's doable but the band would have had to bring in additional musicians or redevelop the song?

Seems strange, there's a lot of tracks that sounds completely different on track then they do live because of how they recorded. I'm thinking song 2 (with 2 drums + 2 bass as the obvious reference for non-music techines like myself).
