Song of the Day: Blur - Tender

In my post about The Jam, I mentioned they were an obvious influence on Blur.  I'd venture to argue that that influence is mostly felt on the early Blur albums, where they later developed a sound all their own.  Like The Jam, however, Blur were equally brilliant at writing uptempo pop songs and slower, more introspective songs.  "Tender" is a great example of the latter, as well as an excellent portrayal of how to use a gospel choir to perfection.
