CLINT EASTWOOD: It’s been years since Gorillaz dropped new music, which is usual to their fans’ delight, they are prone to releasing music often. With this track released as the first single from their self-titled debut album in March 2001, they madeto the list of "The 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time". The song says what everyone’s thinking but is too afraid to say, "Dare to attempt"

DO YA THANG: This playlist wouldn’t be complete without a collaborative song from artists. The true stars, this time collaborating for another star "Converse" produced a song On February 1, 2012, the song was released and used in order to promote Converse's Chuck Taylors Gorillaz Collection.

HONG KONG: “Hong Kong” by Gorillaz from the b-sides album called D-Sides, The lyrics are full of this longing for how life used to be and Damon’s voice fits perfectly. The lyric “You swallow me / I'm a pill on your tongue / Here on the igniting floor / The neon lights make me numb” deals with the inability but gives a strong feeling of superficiality. This stunning song is, perhaps, an ode to a wondrous place or situation turning sour or being overtaken by something that will go on to inevitably ruin its wonder. The blurring of piano chords and strings at the end is chilling and haunting, making it a mesmerising outro.

TOMORROW COMES TODAY: It can be perfectly described by Murdoc Niccals attempt to try to explain the song's meaning: "This song is sort of about the idea that… you think you'll ignore tomorrow and have your fun today. Take it all up front, y'know? Which sounds like a great idea until you realize that you're writing off today by taking tomorrow now. 'I'll pay with tomorrow….'? Yeah? It's kinda deep….Anyway."

ON MELANCHOLY HILL: Murdoc says "The Melancholy Hill - it's that feeling, that place, that you get in your soul sometimes, like someone's let your tyres down. It's nice to break up the album with something a little lighter. It's good to have something that's a genuine pop moment on every album. And this is one of those."

 

STYLO : Bullet-riddled ’69 Camaro, pursued by a donut-loving cop, frazzled and frightened Gorillaz, And then there’s Willis, and at clip’s end, we see the Gorillaz’ Camaro transform into a sorta-submarine, swimming off into the darkness. That’s the beauty of all things Gorillaz: They understand the power of mystery, of the unsaid. And that’s the power of the “Stylo” video, too.

FEEL GOOD INC. : This song is about what people do in order to make themselves feel good. Focussing on the darker side of pleasure like addictions and habits, it seems to say that you should stop thinking about what makes you feel good and try to love others to make them feel good. The windmill refers to the love that makes the world go around.

ROCK THE HOUSE: "And when the MC rhyme and the DJ spin I want y'all to just get down"  with the spin and the tune Gorillaz really rock the house. A perfect rhythm when you are on to something.. Absolutely anything.

19-2000: And here we are at the perfect of them all, An All-timer. Ba ba ba Bay do de bop will keep you always Get the cool! Get the cool shoeshine! Oomph.. Can get over the lyrics can't get over to the song!

 

EMPIRE ANTS LIVE : Albarn's melodic as well as the weary, more of all the melodic music he's been perfecting for much of his lifetime presented all in an album "Plastic Beach" and the more its played the more you mean "amazingly beautiful".
