The Top Ten
1 Song 2

An excellent song. I first heard it in the FIFA game. It has so much energy and is as catchy as hell. Excellent!

Very hard choice, but I have to agree with 27% of the people. It was very close with Parklife, though. But top ten aside, Blur are just overall AMAZING.

Big-time rocker! This song is miles above Blur's other songs and could rock any stadium!

2 The Universal

Ah, god, it was so difficult to choose between This Is A Low, Beetlebum, Parklife, Country House... Ahh! But I just had to go with this song. It's so wonderful. Just listen to the melancholy in Damon's voice, and at the same time, you can feel hope as well.

Amazing lyrics, guitar, bass, and drums - everything about this song.

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.

3 Coffee and TV

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.

This song is great! Kind of a call to action in some ways. It has a quirky sound that is awesome!

4 Parklife

I've liked this song my whole life, but I never knew what it was called or who it was by. Then I found out it was this song by Blur, and I was absolutely shocked because I'm an Oasis fan. I thought I'd never like a Blur song, but here we are. I love this song. I sing it all the time. Gonna listen to all the other songs on this list too.

This song is 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.

Great riff and very entertaining. I love Damon Albarn's voice, but this one isn't even sung by him for the most part and it's my favorite.

5 Beetlebum

Absolutely beautifully written and has a fantastically captivating buildup. While Song 2 is what introduced me to Blur, this is the one that truly solidified my interest and properly made me a fan.

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.

Out of this list, Beetlebum 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.

6 Girls & Boys

This is the catchiest and most fun 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.

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

This is the song I first heard that got me into the band. I downloaded all their albums from then.

7 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 renowned Blur character song, a really funny portrait of high-class decadence with probably the most creative guitar playing by Graham Coxon in any song the band ever performed.

8 Country House

The best one, simple, it's the best one. No song compares to this one. It's brilliant! I think it's perfect: perfect sound, perfect guitar and vocals, perfect solo, great ending. It's wonderful!

This song means more to me than you can understand. It is like I am this song. It is me, and I am it.

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

9 Tender

I'm waiting for that feeling.
I'm waiting for that feeling.
Waiting for that feeling to come.

Really like that part, gave me goosebumps. What a harmony!

This is by far their best song ever. It has such a beautiful message and is great to sing. It leaves you singing it for days afterward.

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

10 This is a Low

I could have chosen so many amazing songs to give my vote to (such as The Universal, Caramel, Clover Over Dover, and Death of a Party), but This Is a Low just moves me in a way I won't ever be able to describe.

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

This song is great. If you listen all the way to the chorus, it's amazing. It should be at the top, followed by There's No Other Way and then Girls and Boys or She's So High.

The Contenders
11 For Tomorrow

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.

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

12 End of a Century

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.

13 You're So Great

It's a good song with a good meaning.

This song's so great, and I love it.

14 Sweet Song

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...

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

Think Tank might not be their best album, but this is one of their most beautiful and emotional songs.

15 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 so different from everything Blur had previously done, but it 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.

16 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. It's simple, so simple for people to love this song.

17 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 and the Queen," with seaside-sounding Hammond organ accompaniment. 21st-century Britpop sound of multicultural Britain.

18 There's No Other Way

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

This song is so good! Should be a bit higher.

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

19 Good Song

This song makes me feel really good every time I hear it, no matter my condition. It will stay with me forever.

20 Chemical World

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

Totally underrated, their best riff in my opinion.

I love this song! It's so catchy and is the standout track on Modern Life is Rubbish.

21 On Your Own

Gee, this sure is my favorite Gorillaz song.

Maybe one of their most underrated songs.

22 To the End

This song is simply wonderful!
