Great song but the final chord on the piano is pinched straight from A Day In The Life. :P

gotta say, changed my mind about his song, no longer sounds like a damon solo efford, grahams backing vocals, gave it a beatles-esque feel, and the guitar efects on the intro were delicious... roll on 7:15

I have adored UTW since I first heard it, the melody has been stuck in my head ever since, and not many blur songs has done that on first listen. The whole band version was absolutely worth the wait!! :D :D

Graham's guitar work in the studio version reminds me a lot of the 13 era.
