Oh, Blur, I know exactly where I heard this song for the first time. And really the only time until now. It was on TV, for the trailer for “Starship Troopers”. I’ve got a video of it below, but it’s not exactly the one I saw because I remember specifically there was a shot of Casper Van Dien holding a grenade and making an explosion sound. It was hella awesome.
Anyway, Blur, after seeing that trailer, I HAD to go see that movie. And I did go see it. And I was hella disappointed. Not in the movie, Blur. I LOVE “Starship Troopers”. LOVE. IT. I’ve seen it many times already, and I guarantee I’ll watch it at least a couple more times before I die. But what I was disappointed in was that this song wasn’t in the movie. How could this song not be in the movie?!?!?! This song and that movie were made for each Surely there was a montage it would have fit in. Surely!
It’s been one of the great disappointments in my life, Blur. But the good news is that I’ve found you again and can listen to you whenever I want to now.
