Blur - There's No Other Way

There's No Other Way was Blur's first smash hit; but the lull in releases which caught the public's ear, and the difference in style with Parklife means that a lot of people aren't aware that this is a Blur song.

So it stands a little separate from the rest of Blur's output, I think, almost a one-hit wonder to "early Blur", a delightful singalong classic, oft chosen for those Madchester-era compilations, even if Blur weren't really part of the Madchester scene (presumably, not coming from Manchester after all). A good introduction to Leisure, which is one of my favourite of their albums.
