VIDEO: Tube Ticket Barrier Sounds Exactly Like Blur’s Song 2

Song 2

Turns out Damon Albarn might have got his inspiration for the melody for Song 2 from a ticket barrier.

OK, I’ll be honest – maybe exactly like Song 2 is a bit of an exaggeration but it certainly bears a striking similarity to the Britpop classic, as this video with all the woohoos taken out and replaced with a video of the ticket machine doing it, proves.

The video was taken by YouTube user Ritch Ames – who reckons the woohoo is even in the same key as Damon Albarn (yeah right). He adds that the ticket barrier can be found at Canary Wharf, second from the right. Don’t all flock at once.
