Music is None of my Business

My Ultimate Blur Set List

I’m a member of a new secret Facebook group (sort of) where we volunteer our fantasy set lists of our favorite bands. Without overthinking it, I put together my ultimate dream set list by one of my favorite bands, Blur. The rule set forth by the group’s founder is 20 song set, 5 song encore.

Prepare yourselves for some deep cuts and representative hits. I didn’t forget about “The Universal”, I omitted it; it’s a wonderful song but so melodramatic that closing their sets with it seems perfunctory at this point. Also, I love the idea that an audience member there because a friend dragged them begins the show with the misconception that Graham is a lead singer for a noise-rock band.
