5. The Universal

'The Universal' featured on Blur's fourth studio album, The Great Escape. It was released on 13 November 1995 as the second single from that album, charting at number five on the UK Singles Chart.

In keeping with the song's science fiction theme, the single's cover art is an allusion to the opening shot of 2001: A Space Odyssey, and the music video is a tribute to the movie A Clockwork Orange, with the band dressed up in costumes similar to Alex and his droogs.



Out so far:

5th: The Universal
6th: Coffee & TV
7th: Beetlebum
8th: There's No Other Way
9th: End of A Century
10th: Charmless Man
11th: To The End
12th: She's So High
13th: On Your Own
14th: For Tomorrow
15th: No Distance Left To Run
16th: Country House
17th: This Is A Low
18th: Music Is My Radar

I've voted for Parklife about 6 times now, and assumed I'd end up transferring my vote and supporting it to win, as I definitely prefer it to the two favourites but it certainly wouldn't make my top 10 of this album. I've just been happy to add my vote to whichever of that trio has also had support to save my faves!

I'm not clued up on a lot of their singles but how on earth did Country House finish 3rd last?! One of their best for sure.

Girls & Boys easily the best song remaining. I actually find both Song 2 & especially Parklife quite annoying songs.
