Song of the Day: Blur – “Tender”

Happy birthday wishes go out to Damon Albarn, who turns 49 years old today. Albarn is busy with the return of Gorillaz at the moment, who will be releasing a new album on March 26, but today we’re going to go back to one of his classics with Blur. Written about Albarn’s breakup with Elastica frontwoman Justine Frischmann, this anthem reached No. 2 in the U.K. in 1999 and was a top 10 hit in three other countries. It didn’t chart in the U.S. — definitely an example of a song that wasn’t a hit stateside but very much should have been.
