Here's more interesting things in songs and lyrics tied to Blur or about the 1990s in general.

Why is Song 2 by Blur on our list of the most popular singalong songs? Because the enormously catchy and popular song Blur from 1997 belongs on that very list.

Song 2 almost never existed in the first place. The band always considered Song 2 one of their most “deliberately basic” songs and never took the track very seriously. It was on the band’s list of songs to cut and not bother with releasing, but record execs liked the sound and simplicity of Song 2.

The song is 2:02 long, which made it a great 2 minute song to use to by radio DJs when they had to fill a small gap before a music break. There weren’t a huge number of exactly 2 minute songs that were popular at the time (and there still aren’t).  Song 2 was often the last thing you would hear back in the late 1990’s before the radio went to voice or a commercial – Song 2 literally became the bookend song of the era.

There’s a Reddit thread that deep dives into the song with lots of other fun facts on this one. A lot of the information in our profile of Song 2 by Blue was contributed, derived and inspired from details found there.

I got my head checked
By a jumbo jet
It wasn’t easy
But nothing is

When I feel heavy-metal
And I’m pins and I’m needles
Well, I lie and I’m easy
All the time but I am never sure
Why I need you
Pleased to meet you

I got my head down
When I was young
It’s not my problem
It’s not my problem

Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
Oh yeah
