End of a Century (2:46)

Cover of Parklife

From Parklife and 39 other releases

End of a Century is a song by Blur. It was the last single to be released from their third album Parklife and reached #19 on the UK Singles Chart in . The video is a live performance recorded at Alexandra Palace.

The lyrics seem to emphasise the (then) up-coming millennium change and the fact that people contemplate the future rather than take care of the present. The line from the song is “End of a Century / It’s nothing special”.

Damon Albarn later stated maybe “End of a Century”, wasn’t the proper choice for the fourth single. Instead he suggested This Is a Low, would probably have been a better choice.

She says, "There's ants in the carpet"
The dirty little monsters, eating all the morsels
Just pickin' up the rubbish
Give her effervescence, she needs a little sparkle
