I think Blur had better songs than Oasis
I'm going to get Blur's Best Of album next year
Does anyone know whether they are still together?
I know Graham Coxon left but what about the others

That's the shittest poem I've ever read it doesn't even rhyme. In answer though Oasis were more my bag.

> I think Blur had better songs than Oasis

Depends how you look at it:

In terms of progression, Blur are better as they actually tried different styles and moved on between albums. Maybe not for the best, but atleast they tried something new. Oasis haven't moved on quite so much.

In terms of good tunes, Oasis are better, their albums are more consistant. I find that theres alot of shit on Blur albums, I was really dissapointed when I first heard Parklife. I would buy their Greatest Hits and thats it.

But thats me personally, I was always in the Oasis camp back in the 90s...

>I'm going to get Blur's Best Of album next year

Buy it from HMV, or Music Zone, its cheapest there...

> Does anyone know whether they are still together?

Its one of those where they took a break from each other and have never got back to start anything new...

> I know Graham Coxon left but what about the others

Yeah, Coxon has left for good. His latest solo offering is quite good - Happiness in Magazines. I think you can see the void he has left in the band. So much that after recording their last album, the rest of the band wanted him back...

A always preferred Blur to Oasis. Good Songs, like Song 2, Girls and Boys, Parklife, Country House, very good.

Blur might not be one of my favorite bands (they're quite OK, though), but they're definitely much better than those Gallagher pricks from Oasis.

Whenever I think of Blur, I think of the video for 'Coffee & TV'. God, that little milk carton is so hilarious!
Along with A-Ha's 'Take On Me' I think those two are the best music videos ever.
