"Far Out" as written by Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Steven Alexander James and David Rowntree....
I spy in the night sky, don't I?
Phoebe Io Elara
Leda Callisto Sinope
Janus Dione Portia, so many moons
Quiet in the sky at night
Hot in the Milky Way
Outside in
Vega Capella, Hadar
Rigel Barnard's Star
Antares, Aldebaran, Altair
Wolf 359 Betelgeuse
Sun, sun, sun, sun

    General CommentAlex, the bassist, takes a big interest in astronomy and this is his song. He has a child-like enthusiasm for it which is captured in the words. First he simply lists moons, "quiet in the sky at night", and then stars, "hot in the milky way". Ah, love it :)

    General Commentlike that song very much, though there's no deep meaning: someone looking at the sky and naming all the stars he can see.
    i like this song so much because it's the band's bass guitar player singing it.

    General CommentSounds like a bit of Syd Barret patiche no? The vocals are all echoed out and the talk about stars is very early Floyd.

    General Commentthis is a sweet little song, the album song in incomplete, which is why its fades out with the 'suns'. there was a ben hiller remix that came out in 1999 - with complete version, with full lyrics. im sure its kicking around on youtube somewhere if you fancy a listen?

    General CommentIt's very Syd Barrett. Blur were huge fans of his, particularly Graham and Damon. I think Damon even played at the Barrett tribute concert in 2007.

    "Strange News From Another Star" shoes the same influence, but it's much darker.
