As usual with Blur
, it's a simple riff
. The couplet
is played on - almost - acoustic guitar
and snare drum
, which creates a great atmosphere; in the refrain
, a hugely distorted bass
joins in and all hell breaks loose.
This song epitomizes the difference between Blur and Radiohead: it is fun.
If you like this song, you'll also like Watching the detectives, by Elvis Costello, and D'yer Mak'er, by Led Zeppelin.
