Weekend Rock Question: What’s the Best Brit-Pop Song?
This has been a pretty amazing few weeks for Brit-pop fans. Not only did Blur release their first album with the original lineup since 1999, but Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds are on tour to support their new album, Chasing Yesterday. If that’s not enough, there’s even a report that the Greek girl with the “thirst for knowledge” from Pulp’s “Common People” has been tracked down.
Now we have a question for you: What is the greatest Brit-pop song of all time? To clarify, the genre begin in England (obviously) around 1992 and fizzled out by 1999. It peaked in 1994 with the release of Blur’s Parklife and Oasis’ Definitely Maybe, but it also includes works by Pulp, Radiohead, Suede, the Verve, Supergrass, Ash and many others. Feel free to vote for Oasis’ “Wonderwall,” Blur’s “Girls and Boys,” Radiohead’s “Fake Plastic Tree,” Pulp’s “Common People” or anything else you want. Just please only vote once and only for a single selection.
