Top Ten Best Blur Songs

The Top Ten

1 Song 2

So much energy in this song, I love it !

The bass is louder than guitar! - Userguy44

You are not a true Blur fan if you think this is their best song. Thanks to all the Americans for voting this into first place. Blur actually wrote this to make fun of the grunge scene and show how easy it was to write that sort of music. They were probably laughing their heads off when it became a hit in America. - ziggylfe

For those of you who think this is the best song, listen to Parklife, Modern Life is Rubbish, and The Great Escape, in that order. Then you will think twice before voting for Song 2. - Gg2000

2 The Universal

This is such an amazing song and the video is one of my absolute favorites :)
And when you look into the lyrics and fully understand them you see how truly brilliant blur were.

These is the perfect song to finish any concert

I absolutely love this song! It's nothing like anything else blur has, but it's so good. I love how orchestral it is and the way that you can still hear all the other components of blur. The chorus is empowering and just a quality song. Brilliant.

Amazing music with great peformance opera music wave! Something lose in your soul make this song absolutely completing you are!

great song great lyrics and also great video clips..

the best blur's song ever! this should be the number one song... I listened every day all my childhood... just love it

This is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. I could listen to it on repeat for five hours straight. It blows me away every time.

Fantastic song, and one of the best music videos I've seen for it too. It blends Blur's britpop lyrics and their indie music beautifully

4 Beetlebum

yes

Out of this list Beetebum is the best for one reason: Versatility. This song is the one song on the album that sounds like it's from a different artist every separate minute.

The song Builds and builds and is Blur at their absolute best. Damon and Graham in perfect harmony. My favorite part is the soaring guitar in the outro.

This song should be number 3 behind song 2 and parklife amazing song vote this one up please - mneilan

5 Girls & Boys

Don't vote for any song from Blur except for this one. Just, pure perfection. Don't hesitate, vote for this catchy tune

I quess, this is even better than song 2

Very similar chord structure to Gorillaz' DARE. Extremely haunting. My favorite from Parklife.

This is the catchiest and funnest song, at least the one Blur song easiest to remember. Maybe that's annoying for some die hard fans, but I'm trying to look at the big picture.

6 Parklife

This song is just so weird and random that it's amazing. The video is quality and the song is just mental. But that's why I love it.

Love love this song it's so good and amazing great guitar drum bass and singing

All the people so many people

Phil daniels everyone

7 This is a Low

A beautiful melody. Atomspheric production that surrounds you. And genuine conviction; you can tell that Damon was bitter and homesick when they recorded this. - Gg2000

This song is great, if you listen all the way to the chorus, it's amazing... Should be at the top followed by there's no other way and then girls and boys or she's so high.

Aw come on people song 2? really? its fine but is it the best blur song ever? no. this is.

This song is simply beautiful. I love this song much much more than song 2 which is a bit overrated. There both great pieces of music but I think this deserves to be higher on the list.

Best British song ever! Young' fun and very British!

9 Charmless Man

Not about the band members, alcohol, drugs, girls, or other route 1 songs, with versatile instruments, an indie root, brilliant singing, catchy chorus, and the essence of what made Britpop: subtle references to daddy bands (The Smiths) and subtle references to Damon Albarn's music and romantic rival Bernard Butler.

The most reknowned Blur's character song, a really funny portrait of high class decadence with probably the most creative and guitar playing by Graham Coxon in any song the band ever performed.

10 Tender

This is by far their best song ever. Such a beautiful message and a great one to sing. Leaves you singing it for days afterwards.

This song should at least be top 5, so much emotion. My favorite I think!

This song is just wonderful and heart-warming. Love it. Should be in the top 10, I think.

One of my all time favourite songs. Best Blur song without doubt. Knocks anything else out. It's amazing.

The Contenders

11 For Tomorrow

It makes you want to sing along, has aged brilliantly and is just an incredible song. Amazing guitar and vocals round it off, and has you dancing and singing all day

Not just my favorite Blur song. For Tomorrow is my favorite song of all time. I just love it.

Quite simply Blur’s greatest ever song. Not written for commercial success, but as an expression of how they were feeling during the hellish run up to the release of Modern Life is Rubbish. If you want a point in time when Britpop started, it is here, with For Tomorrow.

Especially the extende, brass-laden Visit to Primrose Hill version!

12 End of a Century

Should be higher

I think that this is one of those very underrated songs that are perfect musically speaking and have really cool lyrics that everyone can relate to.

Beautiful to hear live, great song

13 Sweet Song

This song is just beautiful. Sad. But truly beautiful.

This should be in Top 3 - My favourite song of Blur.

A lesser known Blur song, but one of the most emotional songs about Damon and Graham's relationship.

It annoys me to see some really meaningless songs above this beautiful piece of music. It reminds me of my friend, me being her only friend...

14 Out of Time

This song means whatever it means to each person listening. Beautiful, beautiful song, hard to choose between this and the universal as their best.

This song is just so different from everything Blur had previously done, but is just as enjoyable. I feel it should be at least Number 10.

Sounds like The Crystal Ship, Albarn goes Jim Morrison. Complete with oriental sounds, haunting song.

So different from previous Blur songs, but just as enjoyable. Even more so.

15 You're So Great

This song's so great and I love it... - PinkHeno

So beautiful, this song is amazing

It's a good song with good meaning.

I can't believe this so low!
Long Live Graham Coxon!

16 Fool's Day

New Blur ditty, that seems to absorb the sums of all the parts of their sound from previous incarnations, [including Damon Albarn's side project "The Good, the Bad & the Queen", with seaside-sounding hammond organ accompaniment. 21st century Brit-pop sound of multi-cultural Britain. - speenhamland

17 There's No Other Way

This song is so good! Should be a bit higher

It's just a great song to listen to on a hot springs day, shouting the lyrics out of your car window

This should be in the top ten! My all time favorite Blur song.

18 Good Song

Unbelievably underrated

This song makes me fell really GOOD every time I hear it, no mather in which conditon am I. It will stay with me forever.

19 On Your Own

Gee this sure is my favorite Gorillaz song...

My love of life is on a roll

Should be higher

20 On the Way to the Club

Really beautiful and underrated

21 To the End

This song is simply wonderful!

This just breaks my heart. Great song, great video. Wonderful

So relaxing, make you feel like you are flying

22 Chemical World

This is at 72 while Song 2 is at number one? That's just really sad. - Gg2000

So underrated! My favorite from MLiR.

I love this song! It's so catchy and is the standout track in Moddern Life is Rubish. - Slipperyjack40

Totally underrated, their best riff in my opinion.

23 Country Sad Ballad Man

This is my favourite song by Blur. Why is this 53rd?! It's one of their best songs.

24 M.O.R.
25 Best Days
26 Bang

Totally underrated, the best song/single off Leisure. - the_universal

27 He Thought of Cars

One of the first songs where Albarn started to question everything- it paints a bleak picture, but it's so beautifully performed that it's heartbreaking. Definitely the best.

I can't believe this is so far down the list- the highlight of The Great Escape, such a heartbreaking message with such a seemingly-trivial metaphor. Blur at their best.

The lyrics are so... So amazing, just amazing, and they match the amazing tune. It's fun to sing along to, a really good song, I really love it. ()/

28 Go Out

Not my favourite but need it to be higher

LOVE this song; my favourite, love the unexpected experimental sound.

YES

29 Colin Zeal

What are you people on? Best song ever... about colin's

30 No Distance Left to Run

I so love this song...

Totally agree w/OasisFeelsLove! Never have heard this song without feeling something hard in my chest.

How is this not even on the damn list are you people smoking ?!?!?! - OasisFeelsLove

31 Under the Westway

So emotional for me. One of their greatest songs, and t deserves to be in top 10. Beautiful piano part and Damon's voice is so strong.

Why vote for this song? I'll tell you why!
Released in 2012, it was their first UK Top 40 hit in nearly a decade.
It starts of slow and builds up, with beautiful lyrics prehaps referencing our use of computers and technology and them coming before interaction with people. The song has been compared to The Beatles in terms of it's style.

It contrasts greatly from Brit-Pop classic 'Country House' and 'Parklife', plus heavy rock hit 'Song 2' (see above), but this makes it no less impressive and shows the versatility of the band and it's lead singer Damon Alabarn.

Listen to it here or on Youtube and make your mind up, and if you agree vote it.

32 Sing

Such an amazing song should be much higher, great build up

This is my absolute favourite Blur song and I recommend you give it a listen. You will be completely mesmerized the second you hear it for the first time. It's so atmospherical and utterly beautfiul. Sounds like nothing else I've ever heard. - RobynTM

33 Tracy Jacks

Probably the best Blur non-single song, a very funny character song with awesome lyrics and great highlight moments such as Graham's guitars and the classy string arrangements.

My favorite song, that it' is simple, so simple to people love this song

34 Swamp Song
35 She's So High

0.2%? Should be in the Top 5 at least - ziggylfe

36 Badhead

No doubt it is a great song. Very beautifully composed from. Perfect song for soothing emotions.

Needs to be higher. Top ten at least

Totally underrated. Great song!

37 Entertain Me

AMAZING SONG! Sounds so cool! Should be in top 10! Sounds so so good. Advice EVERYONE to hear this song!

Fantastic piece, definitely one of top ten.

Awesome song! In tiny houses here and there

39 Trimm Trabb

That's Just the way it is

I love this song

Amazing

40 Look Inside America
41 Lonesome Street

This has to be one of blur's best works! Coxon's catchy riffs, Albarn's awesome song writing, James' funky bass and Rowntree's steady drumming all in one song.

42 Caramel
43 Blue Jeans

Blurs most underrated song

No doubt best ever blur song

44 Jets

From soft to rock to funk to jazz

45 Popscene

WHY IS THIS SO LOW?!

This is one of Blur's best songs.

46 Trouble In the Message Centre
47 Trailerpark
48 Crazy Beat

31? What. Can this at least be in the top 10 it's a awesome song. Sure it's different but come can it at least get a bit more credit plus it's a lot like song 2 with the rock sound. Same with Good Song put that in the top 10.

Yes, this is an amazing song.

49 Battle

A little too good - ilovelife23

A little too long but a couple of amazing moments

50 Sunday Sunday

This song is fun
