[REMIX] Blur – “Girls & Boys (Ryan Riot Remix)”

love in the 90s is paranoid

♫ Blur – Girls & Boys (Ryan Riot Remix)

I guess Blur have reunited and people who are into that kind of thing are really excited but I’m doing just fine revisiting the 90s through Ryan Riots funked up lens of good time grooves. Get down!

How-dilly, ho-dilly, neighbors! I’m currently cooking up all kinds of excitement behind the scenes here at TBE so I’m not gonna stick around and chat. You know the deal, these are the jams that are more ‘newsworthy’ then ‘noteworthy’ so that you can stay up to speed on all the latest music hitting the web without reading as many damn blogs as I do. To cleanse the palette I’ve got a bundle of covers to close things out. Enjoy!

♫ Blur – Fool’s Day / Record Store Day is an annual thing and it happened not too long ago. Blur released their first new track in forever and this is it. It’s a good little jam but I imagine that If I had ever loved Blur then I would be into this more. Read more

always should be someone you really love

♫ Blur – Girls And Boys / 1994

It may be a day late but Blur’s 1994 classic “Girls And Boys” is the perfect Valentines jam. If anything, the last 16 years has only made love more “paranoid” and sexual identity lines more blurred, leaving Damon Albarn a sort of romantic prophet. Or maybe he is just a pop star with a knack for it. Whatever. The musical back-bone of The Gorillaz reunited Blur last year and apparently Brits are head over heels for the whole thing. Growing up Stateside I never got into Blur but am vaguely aware of their enormity across the pond as well as some feud with Oasis, if I remember correctly. I wouldn’t mind a schooling in the comments, but if not there is always Wikipedia. But that can wait, I’m too busy enjoying this sweet jam at the moment.
