Top Tune – August 2012

Blur – Under The Westway (2012)

 
What can you say about Blur that hasn’t already been said. Love them or hate them, they are one of the true quintessentially British bands, who have more than a few times epitomized what’s great about music from these shores.

What’s remarkable about “Under The Westway“, is that after multiple albums and a long lay off, it’s clear that Damon still has something to say about his (and our) roots in classic bitter sweet fashion. I think this is a lovely song from the simple melody through to the excellent lyric.

Random Fact: The Blur album “Blue” was originally going to be called “When You’re Walking Backwards To Hell, No One Can See You, Only God“.
