ONE OF THE BEST SONGWRITERS OF ALL TIME.
Favourite Albarn song?
The Universal, Tender
Should have said mine is For Tomorrow, btw
my top three would be Out Of Time, No Distance Left To Run and Tender.
But no discussion of Allbran is complete without someone making this very important point:
He's an awful bellend.
I'll go with the biggies This Is A Low and The Universal are both brilliant
I see how it works - carry on (PS: I like Noel more)
I have contributed to effed up tags. I'll just slink away now...
My total favourites probably out of time, to the end, dying isn't easy, feel good inc, this is a low
and Fried. Though fried isn't great songwriting - it's just a banger.
Feel Good Inc.
This is a Low
My favourite of his is Beetlebum.
Its probably not, but i just really like that song!! or many miss america ; )
OH STYLO! what a feckin song! what an album. On Melancholy Hill is another beaut, they all are.
Seriously think Damon Albarn is completely peerless at the moment.
I LOVE DAMON ALBARN
its incredibly consistent, Melancholy Hill is amazing off of the new Gorilaz album
but No Distance Left To Run and Universal would definitely be up there. As would This Is Low.
Too many really, the guy's a genius
ok.. here seems a good place:
This is a Low
The Good The Bad The Queen
Out of time
where does this 'he's an absolute bellend' thing come from?
Every band he's been involved with has been brilliant and his consistency and knack for knocking out amazing melofies is 2nd to none.
No chance i am picking a favourite but i just came here to doff my hat to the man.
in No Distance Left To Run (the DVD) he comes across pretty well. Maybe age has mellowed him a bit.
is pretty fucking special
...and oh boy can Damon do that. Waaaay too clever.
I wouldn't know where to start but going through each of the projects, let's say For Tomorrow, TGTBATQ and ... well, I think Stylo is my favourite Gorillaz track so far (haven't heard the new album yet).
Not heard the Monkey opera thing either, but still... the more time passes, the more ludicrous it is to think that anyone thought to compare him and Noel Gallagher in the same sentence...
