Woo hoo!
Woo hoo!
Woo hoo!
Woo hoo!

I got my head checked
By a jumbo jet
It wasn't easy
But nothing i-is, no

Woo hoo!
When I feel heavy metal
Woo hoo!
And I'm pins and I'm needles
Woo hoo!
Well I lie and I'm easy
All of the time but I'm 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

Woo hoo!
When I feel heavy metal
Woo hoo!
And I'm pins and I'm needles
Woo hoo!
Well I lie and I'm easy
All of the time but I'm never sure why I need you
Pleased to meet you

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Oh yeah

They just played this at my son's wedding last Friday. Took the fucking roof off.
Wooohooooo!

Ya know, a few less "woo-hoo's" and a bit more of that crunchy/gritty bass line and this could be pure badass.

Kinda grows on ya.

HA!! Too funny.
As much as I adore this song, I can only give it an 8, because it's tripe.

Delicious, delightful tripe.

But tripe, nonetheless.
{#Yell} SING ALONG!

Geez, six months later and we get the exact same list. Wonder if Bill has set playlists that he plugs in and keeps around for years at a time.


  
I was about to wish for that same list with the Smiths' "There is a Light.." and Radiohead but it's gone onto Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds' with "Nature Boy" . All good!!!

Absolutely BRILLIANT tune - just love it.  Especially fun to hear it as the soundtrack for the Guy Ritchie video "Star" promoting the BMW M5 with Madonna! (see it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1dYv_gKTA8)

That's pretty funny considering it was written to be a parody to begin with.

Bill, I got work to do - all these good songs require, no demand, pumping up and seat bobbing. Wooo Hoooo!

Great song. Matter of fact, this is a great set with lots of rock with a capital R.
OMG....this was sooo many years ago. :crown:

How the hell am I supposed to get any work done around here? Great set. :guitarist: :drummer: :motor:
Great set, been boppin' around my office. Thanks!
A song that never becomes old. Great tunes.
Yay Blur!!!
Hey cool, I never connected this song to the mastermind behind The Gorillaz and The Good, The Bad and The Queen. Good stuff!!

i was gonna say... where's the hockey game?
And I was gonna say that this song strikes me as good for hockey games, sports hilight reels, maybe a movie trailer with stuff blowing up...and not much else. Just my opinion but aside from its energy (and a vibe kinda borrowed from Nirvana) I don't see much going on in this song or with Blur in general...
Great set of music!
Forget the hockey games, what about all the ski/snowboard vids? makes me long for snow and the board. Oh, we had some 2 weeks ago. Nevermind.
_Very_ cool song IMO

Don't like this sort of music at all. Grating. A question of personal taste, of course. Can't say whether this band is talented or not, given what they do in this song.
Well, actually, they rarely sound the same way twice. Blur is absolutely brilliant in that they can take on any genre, make it their own, then completely take the piss out of it. Frontman Damon Albarn's Gorillaz and The Good, the Bad, and the Queen are also right up there at the rank of Genius in that respect.

Despite being played to death on commercial radio and countless hockey rinks, it's still a kick-ass rock song!

I'm glad this song disappeared for a while, now I love it again.

this kind of makes me wish I'd never given anything a 10 before. Should've saved it for Song 2.

I see your rubbish joke and raise/lower a worse one: Who's on first? (Woo hoo!) Song 2 Or something like that. Sincere apologies to A&C.
Quickly turning into a staple at any athletic event. It's fun to see all the non-rockers jumping around singing, "Whoo hoo!" after a goal or touchdown.

to quote XTC: THIS IS POP! YEAH, YEAH! :yell:
yeah, thanks for playing this one! I just wanted to go to bed but I think I'll start some headbanging now. Great!
I still love this song despite it's million times a day rotation back in 1997-1998. But Blur is a great band anyway.
pop music stripped down to its bare essentials...woo hoo!

It's in a short film/commercial commisioned by BMW, directed by Guy Ritchie. Starring Madonna, of course. It's a hoot. You can see it here.
BTW, that was the best of the BMW films. I believe Clive will eventually be James Bond.

Woo Hoo...just what I need to get me going this morning!
Woo-hoo! My GOD, how I should despise this song! Don't, though. Kinda like it, even. Go figure.

Song 9
Woo-hoo!
I think it's a good song but after you hear any song a thousand times you get sick of it.....
Short and sweet.... WOOO-HOOO!!!! :yell: :guitarist: :drummer:
I think I'd like this song more if I hadn't first heard it in those Pentium with MMX ads. Apple Akbar!

Just shows you what a good engineer can do, amidst all the grunge, one can make out the singing... excellent

This song is a monster hit in the UK. Looks like it got some good play in the US, too. I think it's cool for those getupandgo occasions....
Woo, Hoo! :jump:

YEAH! Turn it up! Wooo Hoooo!
This was featured on a trailer for 'Starship Troopers' and it just summed up the whole 'take your brain out and enjoy' attitude of the movie. I can't hear it now without having flashbacks of Super Brainbugs exploding! WooHoo!!
