Joe Dolan covered Blur and it's amazing

Joe Dolan’s take on Damon Albarn. Incredible.

NO ONE HERE is alone.

Not with this touching Joe Dolan cover of The Universal by our side, anyway. The sadly deceased Irish showman did this cover in 1998 and it’s well worth your while.


He really was quite the crooner, wasn’t he? And apparently Blur dedicated The Universal to his memory at Oxegen 2009. What a nice bunch of lads.
