On Do Not Allow the Inevitable Setbacks We Are Bound 2 Encounter: 2 Blur our vision


I got my head checked
By a jumbo jet
It wasn't easy
But nothing is
The track was originally nicknamed ‘Song 2’ as a working title, but the name stuck. "Song 2" was the second track on the album, Blur, and the second single from the album to be released. It is exactly two minutes and two seconds long, and is also the second track on their compilation Blur: The Best of. The song is also the second song on the second disc on the album Bustin' + Dronin'. It has two choruses, two verses and two bridges. ...
The song was meant to be a parody of American grunge music. Ironically, it was embraced by the same radio stations whose airplay choices the song was parodying in the first place. ...
The song became popular in the UK and overseas upon its release in 1997, and featured on college and modern rock radio stations in the US. It has been licensed worldwide on numerous occasions. Its first appearance came as the title music for the hit video game FIFA: Road to World Cup 98. It has been used in numerous advertisements, including commercials for the Pentium II and Nissan Sentra and television spots for the film Starship Troopers, and it is often heard in association football, ice hockey, and baseball stadiums when goals or runs are scored, or at the end of a winning game for the home team. ...
The American military allegedly requested to use the track at the launch of a new stealth bomber, but the band refused to allow this, as Albarn is an anti-war campaigner.
As is my practice, I did a keyword search on Baha'i Reference Library to find a quotation from the Baha'i Writings to go with this post. Yes, there is one result for "blur." -gw
I beseech you, dear friends, not to allow considerations of numbers, or the consciousness of the limitations of our resources, or even the experience of inevitable setbacks which every mighty undertaking is bound to encounter, to blur your vision, to dim your hopes, or to paralyze your efforts in the prosecution of your divinely appointed task. Neither, do I entreat you, to suffer the least deviation into the paths of expediency and compromise to obstruct those channels of vivifying grace that can alone provide the inspiration and strength vital not only to the successful conduct of its material construction, but to the fulfilment of its high destiny.
