Girls & Boys – Blur 1994

Genesi

Damon Albarn dichiarò che l’ispirazione per la composizione del brano gli venne a Magaluf, in Spagna, dove era in vacanza con la fidanzata Justine Frischmann. Albarn disse che la città aveva “dei nightclub proprio pacchiani in stile Essex” e un costume sessuale molto aperto. Nella canzone confluiscono elementi pop ed elementi dance. Il batterista Dave Rowntree fu rimpiazzato nella versione studio da una drum machine.

Testo

Street’s like a jungle
So call the police
Following the herd
Down to Greece
On holiday
Love in the nineties
Is paranoid
On sunny beaches
Take your chances
Looking for
Girls who are boys
Who like boys to be girls
Who do boys like they’re girls
Who do girls like they’re boys
Always should be someone you really love
Avoiding all work
Because there’s none available
Like battery thinkers
Count your thoughts
On one-two-three-four-five fingers
Nothing is wasted
Only reproduced
You get nasty blisters
Du bist sehr schan
But we haven’t been introduced
Girls who are boys
Who like boys to be girls
Who do boys like they’re girls
Who do girls like they’re boys
Always should be someone you really love
Girls who are boys
Who like boys to be girls
Who do boys like they’re girls
Who do girls like they’re boys
Always should be someone to really love
Looking for girls who are boys
Who like boys to be girls
Who do boys like they’re girls
Who do girls like they’re boys
Always should be someone you really love
Girls who are boys
Who like boys to be girls
Who do boys like they’re girls
Who do girls like they’re boys
Always should be someone you really love
Girls who are boys
Who like boys to be girls
Who do boys like they’re girls
Who do girls like they’re boys
Always should be someone you really love
Girls who are boys
Who like boys to be girls
Who do boys like they’re girls
Who do girls like they’re boys
Always should be someone to really love
