Song 2 is Radio's Favourite Track
If you listen to a lot of rock on the radio, you may have noticed by now that Blur's Song 2 has consistently been a big winner for years, outlasting the vast majority of other popular songs. Song 2 is good, upbeat, and people like it, making it a perfect song for the radio.
What do our friendly radio stations really like about Song 2 though? Well, it's short. Clocking in at a mere 1:58, the stations can get some music out of the way before getting back to what they really enjoy: commercials, radio personalities reiterating day old stories that they found on Digg, and more commercials.
