"Girls & Boys" (or "Girls and Boys") is a song by British rock band Blur and is the lead track on their third album, Parklife. It was released 7 March 1994 as the first single from that album, charting at #5 in the UK Singles Charts (see 1994 in British music). The single was the band's first Top 5 hit.
Lead vocalist Damon Albarn's withering putdowns of trendy pansexuality and aimless hedonism satirise the party culture in the UK, where groups of youths go on holiday to places like Faliraki and Kavos with the sole intention of getting drunk in the local night-clubs. Ironically, it was a huge hit among them, as the electro-pop noise imitated by Graham Coxon gave it regular play among the clubs.
The single release also includes a remix of the track by Pet Shop Boys, who later covered the track live on tour in 1994.
