Here Thom tells the story of how he once had a narcissistic friend he was compelled to elude. Musically, Just is considered the most complex track on the Bends album, and it proves beyond a doubt that Jonny's guitar playing is original and superb. A live version of this track is available on the double-CD compilation Evening Sessions: Priority Tunes; while it captures the intensity of the song live, the original remains the best.
The video to the song is one of the most frustrating ever written - but nobody knows what the man says at the end, and there is no use asking as the band have said that they are never going to reveal the answer. Jamie Thraves, the producer had said to tell you would deaden the impact, and would probably make you want to lie down in the road too.
