Vengeance gives Blur's classic single new life

PREVIEW THE DJ: Vengeance’s MySpace

LISTEN: “Song 2” by Blur (Vengeance Remix)

It’s got to be the most famous rock song from the early 2000s and late 1990s, and people hate it because it was the most overplayed song on Top 40 radio, but this remix by Vengeance brings back great memories. It can get a little too electro-house pop, but it’s a more than solid interpretation. I think the best part is the opening 30-40 seconds of looping the famous drum line, but I also secretly love yelling “WOO-HOO!!” This remix does that and more. Keep this one in the bank next time you need to make a 1990s playlist, and appreciate Blur’s single and only accomplishment.

I agree with everything, except your last sentence. I don’t think Blur have ever really been understood or appreciated in America except for Song 2. Sad, really. Parklife and 13 are some of my favorite albums of all time, but seeing as how their last album was released in 2003, they have lost a bit of relevance and momentum.

Single and only accomplishment??? They were the biggest band in the UK for the 90s! What you on about only accomplishment?????
