I love them to bits, more than I do Oasis and Coldplay, whom I both enjoy but not as much as Blur and Pulp.


I sense another poll coming on....

I went to see Blur a couple of times back in '97 - they are really good live.

The same cannot be said of the Verve without Nick McCabe. I adore the Verve and I like Richard Ashcroft very much... for me, listening to him was like drowning in a vat of warm chocolate. They were fairly good when I saw them play live live. Ashcroft was in good form vocally and Simon Tong carried the gig well, but I felt as though one of the magic ingredients was missing after McCabe left.

Pulp were different from everybody else who was big at the time, and I liked that. I thought Do You Remember The First Time? was great, and I liked Common People and a few others. Joyriders made me smile:

We can't help it, we're so thick we can't think.
Can't think of anything but shit sleep and drink.
Oh and we like women:
up the women we say
and if we get lucky, yeah we might even meet some one day...


Had a great laugh at the lyrics for Disco 2000! Also remember being highly amused listening to the 5th years' karaoke parody of Misshapes (renamed Pisstakes) at school. Jarvis Cocker was annoying though, I freely admit!

I was doing my A-levels during the whole Blur/Oasis rivalry thing, the ridiculous 'battle' for number 1. Someone had written 'OASIS' on the school noticeboard ... I wrote "available now in all good bargain bins near you". I couldn't resist that opportunity, even though I liked Oasis. The war that followed was a lot of nonsense, and an excuse for everybody to indulge in some general tomfoolery.

I also remember being in the middle of a very pointless argument which went "Blur". "No, Oasis". "Blur are shite". "Oasis are worse". Eventually someone butted in with "NO! STEPS!"

That shut them up.

Ah, happy days...

A new poll? Here's a few ideas.

Motorhead versus Enya.
Rammstein versus Atomic Kitten.
Duran Duran versus Bob Marley.
Kate Bush versus Tears For Fears.
Radiohead versus the Monkees.
NSync versus a grop of Gregorian monks.
Celine Dion versus Eminem.

Yes, Noel is not a great songwriter, but if the songs sound good, thats what matters, unless you are looking for poetry!

Songs such as Some Might Say, Champagne Supernova, Columbia, and even Wonderwall don't have very good lyrics, but are great songs.

In my opinion I don't think Mofo has great lyrics, but it rocks.

More annoying:

sallycinnamon78 bitching about a new poll she should just ignore if she doesn't want to play versus being bit by a mosquito

Wasn't bitching about the new poll at all! Just thought I'd add my little suggestions, as usual. If you're gonna take the piss, at least be accurate.

Thought I'd save the hassle of the new debate with a quick summary:


Oasis
the
Brain-Eating Sea Monkey

Battle Rating : 5.0

VERSUS


Blur
the
Pasta-Eating Space Monkey

Battle Rating : 5.3

Blur wins!

Oasis is a Brain-Eating Sea Monkey with a Battle Rating of 5.0.http://thesurrealist.co.uk/monkey?def=Oasis

Incidentally - my housemate is keen to actually see the Celine/Eminem battle. I think I prefer the monkeys.

Pulp

Blur I'm kinda mixed about; they have heaps of fantastic songs but for some reason I find it hard to truly get into the band. They have something of a smart unloveable kid to them.
