Top Blur Moments on Record

In addition to Blur's live stuff, I like to talk about their studio stuff from time to time on here because, let's face it: a) it's great, and b) without the studio stuff, there would be no live stuff in the first place! I was thinking lately that it might be interesting to try and choose the top 10 moments on record for each member of the band, being that they are all incredible and unique talents in their own right and that their meshing together in this band is a perfect blend. Like all great bands, the whole is definitely greater than the sum of its parts. And let me add that it will be impossible for me (and I assume any other Blur fan who visits here) to choose *just* 10 moments for each member. Personally, these will be the top 10 I'm thinking of and that I'm enjoying AT THIS certainly can and will change in the future.

So first up...Damon Albarn!

For those new here who may not know much about Blur, Damon is the lead singer, keyboardist, acoustic guitarist, and songwriter in Blur. This list will focus on his lead vocals, since that is his main "instrument" played within the band.

My top 10 Damon Albarn moments on record:

1. "The Universal"
2. "This is a Low"
3. "All We Want"
4. "Tender"
5. "Beetlebum"
6. "Ambulance"
7. "Battery in Your Leg"
8. "Popscene"
9. "For Tomorrow"
10. "Black Book"

What are yours?

Wrapping it up (the book, that is!)

I'm trying to finish the last several reviews to go in to the book and then I'll begin formatting it and getting it ready for the final push to publication. If you've got anything to contribute to it (ie live recordings, ticket stubs/scans, etc) please contact'd be much appreciated!

And I hope to get back to a more regular schedule of updating this site and sharing new content, time permitting. Thanks for sticking around!
