Blur – “Tender”

While we’re on the subject of sappy songs, let’s revisit some old Blur.

“Tender” comes from 13, an album that saw the Brits attempt to reinvent themselves, and in retrospect, it seems to have worked. It may not have been noticeable at the time (recall what the Internet was like in 1999), but 13 landed on most best-of-the-year lists and garnered a Mercury Prize nomination—all while “Song 2” was still being played ad nauseam in bars and on radio stations here.

Blur have a new album on the way—their first since 2003’s Think Tank—and it marks the return of guitarist Graham Coxon, who departed after 13.
