Blur – Girls and Boys

Posting The Stone Roses last week got me to thinking again about Britpop and inspired me to post some more.

For me, this is one of the finest examples of the genre. Catchy and energetic, it is typical of Blur who served as a lighter contrast to the more moody and energetic music coming out of the north at the same time. The opening line is an all time great.

Streets like a jungle so call the police…

I was reminded of how awesome the video is when I saw it on TV recently, it works with the song perfectly. Also, Damon Albarn looks impossible young and impish in it.
