Blur – Girls & Boys (album: Parklife 1994)

This song is by Blur. They were such a good band. I love this song very much. Their lead singer Damon Albarn is such a talent! He is the genius behind the Gorillaz as well.

Sounds to me like this song talks about one hell of a beach party with lots of girls and boys that are looking for more girls and boys not necessarily in this order. It’s probably about the Ibiza night life or something similar. This song brings back memories of my Hubby and I first vacation together, after a dating period of 6 months my Hubby took me to Ayia Napa in Cyprus. It’s a magical place with an amazing beaches and unbelievable night life. We’ve met other couples and spent our entire day at the beach and at night time we went out to different night clubs and pubs. We all rented a scooter, and rode it everywhere. At some point my Hubby suggested that I would ride it as well, He sat behind me and I accidently squeezed the gas too hard and we both fell off the scooter. My knees were bruised from the falling and it is shown on every photo we took on that vacation. One night we got really drunk and we rode the scooter back to our hotel. Two police officers stopped us for an alcohol testing. Of course they have realized we were completely drunk but they were very friendly and bored and wanted to chat. We had a nice half an hour conversation with the police officers and then they’ve hugged us and told us to drive safely back to our hotel. Even the police know how to party on this island!  I would definitely want to go back there, it was an amazing vacation! Back to this lovely song, I hope you like it as much as I do ;)

Lyrics: Girls & Boys Lyrics

What’s this song about?

“This song deals with sexual roles, and freedom of sexual preference. Much of it is a send-up of the hedonistic club culture of the '90s.” (Girls & Boys - songfacts)

In 2003, Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke was asked what song he wished he had written. He replied "'Girls & Boys' - bastards!" (Wikipedia – Girls & Boys)
