BLUR, a retrospective

Ok fuck it, I won't put up a stupid fucking picture (this rambling is more for my sake not yours, blogger doesn't want to let me put up a picture right at this moment, so fuck it, I won't put up a stupid fucking picture).

If someone asked me what my favorite band is I would probably tell them either U2 or Talking Heads. When I actually stop and think about this question though the actual answer should probably be Blur. I compiled a favorite 100 songs list some months back and Blur had six entries, the highest number from any band on the countdown. I'm going to put up a song from each of Blur's albums right now in m4a format (Kaplan) so you can download them if you please (I'm actually going to skip Leisure their first album, b/c I can't find it in my iTunes folder, so it's getting skipped, just to let you know I would have probably put up "There's No Other Way" but everyone has probably already heard that song before, so no skin off my back, that's a stupid saying). Blur are a criminally under-rated band, that's a heads up, if you download and listen to these tunes you'll see what I'm saying, enjoy...

"Oily Water": Modern Life is Rubbish
"Trouble in the Message Center": Parklife
"Yuko & Hiro": The Great Escape (I wanted to send "Entertain Me" but I clicked this by accident, I'm having issues today, this is still a good song, just know that it's not as good as "Entertain Me", maybe I'll post that at a later time, this whole thing is taking me a long time and I want to watch Oscars tonight)
"Death of a Party": Blur
"Caramel": 13 (my favorite Blur album, a top 5 all-time favorite album actually)
"Ambulance": Think Tank

A favorite of mine as well. Frankly, I don't know why they are so underrated - maybe it was that feud with Oasis.

Blur is very good. But I liked your number 1 pick on the top 100. May not have been mine, but it is a favorite. Though I don't know if that's what you're actually getting at in this post. In reality, this comment makes no sense. Think about it. Jesus, I am retarded.

"Ambulance" is ridonculous captain, actually that whole album is solid. Yeah Y2 don't quite know where you were going with that one, doesn't really matter though man, good post today on your part, fuck those hollyweird snobs. Will, I really think it had to do with a lack of Unibrow on the Blur fellas parts, whereas Oasis had much unibrow. So what I'm sayin is massive unibrow = larger popularity.
