    General CommentI guess it's just about the experience they've had with America while they were on tour. He states everything that is so typical for America, or at least they are to him.

    General Commentive just had another listen to the song and i think its about how damion went to america recently and its a kind of oppology to america for slaging it off so much on the parklife album. hes saying "im not saying america is good, but it isnt as bad as i made out"

    My OpinionI think this song is fantastic:

    After all those years of trashing America, Blur has a song that states: "I'm still not crazy about America, but I'm sorry; just go on and live and let live.

    General CommentIts a song about being in Amerika with some parodies for Oasis. Oasis was trying hard to da well in the states, but they never were accepted. I thinks thats what "Standing in a distance, but I dont try to make her mine" means.

    As blur are from europe they see the big problems america has better than the US people. The song is great again. I love it.

    General Commentha ha ha, sorry it makes me laugh Gorb, that ur oviously not from britain with the quote "As blur are from europe" britain may be part of europe, but dont try to claim any credit for blur, they are a very british band and took part in the 90's and the culture known as 'britt-pop' it was nothing to do with europe, it was a rebelion against conservitive rule.

    but 'Look Inside America' is a beautiful song.

    General Commentinteresting ideas darth, i quite agree!!! i think the song is beautiful too.. unexpectedly so considering the subject matter... it's not the most glamorous of topics is it? but damon just has a magical way with words, he really does. i can get into the mood of this song so easily.. what a fantastic writer. "good morning lethargy" indeed!

    ps. i think the annie hall line is so sweet :)

    General CommentWhat I love about this song is that the lyrics are about America but the production is so British, so...Beatle-y! The bass playing and the guitar are straight out of Abbey Road. Brilliant tune, brilliant arrangement, brilliant lyrics, love it!!!
