"Common People" (Pulp) or "The Universal" (Blur)?
- 1 decade agoFavorite Answer
As soon as I heard it, I saw a new side to Blur.
Being a fan, even I had trouble believing there was more to Blur than "Country House" and "Coffee and TV" but hearing "The Universal" let me appreciate Blur's other works so much more.
It's so different to what is expected of them but still holds a candle to the original classics Blur had.
With all due respect to "Common People," "The Universal" takes the cake for me.
The video is just amazing. Makes you believe your in a different world, a world of your own and 'Blur' does not exist, but there's this strangely familiar band playing at the club who have a whole new feel to them. The "Clockwork Orange" theme makes it even more appealing to people new to Blur, gives them a broader horizon of fans.
The song is equally as amazing and Damon's voice is stunning. He and Graham especially are something of an intellectual.
Shame the future doesn't look so intriguing....
Great question :D

The Universal, it's a much better track than Common People.

It's difficult. I mean as awesome as Blur's "The Universal" is, when we are all dead and buried and the historians start seriously going over the phase of Brit-pop, "Common People" will go down as possibly one of the most defining songs of the Brit-pop phase and still go down as an outrageously cool song.
Plus who has the heart to hate Jarvis Cocker?
EDIT: Plus if it's good enough for William Shatner, it's good enough for anyone...
