"Song 2" is a song by English alternative rock band Blur, covered by Duran Duran in concert.

About the songEdit

The song was released as the second single from Blur's fifth album Blur and is a riff-based track, known for its overdriven chorus. Damon Albarn stated at the song's debut live performance at the RDS in Dublin in June 1996 that "This one's called 'Song 2', 'cos we haven't got a name for it yet". The working title ended up sticking. It was said that the song was about Pavement's Bob Nastanovich, known for his colourful and energetic stage presence.

In keeping with the title of the song, it was the second track on the album, was the second single from the album to be released, is exactly two minutes and two seconds long, and is also the second track on their compilation Blur: The Best of. It reached #2 in the UK Singles Chart and also placed #2 on Triple J's Hottest 100 for 1997 in Australia. (See Apophenia.) The song was also used as the basis for a question in the 2009 EDEXCEL GCSE music listening examination.

Duran Duran covered the song at the Smirnoff Experience Concert in Paris (France) on 2 July 2008.

LyricsEdit

WOOHOO!

WOOHOO!

WOOHOO!

WOOHOO!



I got my head checked 

By a jumbo jet 

It wasn't easy 

But nothing is,

No - 



WOOHOO!

When I feel heavy metal WOOHOO!

And I'm pins and I'm needles WOOHOO!

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 done 

When I was young 

It's not my problem 

It's not my - problem - 



WOOHOO!

When I feel heavy metal WOOHOO!

And I'm pins and I'm needles WOOHOO!

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
