"Moving" is a song by Supergrass, from their eponymous third album, Supergrass (1999). It was also released as a single, reaching #9 in the UK Singles Chart.[1][2] It is about the tedium of touring as a band. It was the last Supergrass song to reach the UK Top 10.

The song later appeared on the greatest hits compilation Supergrass Is 10: The Best Of 1994–2004.

The song has featured in the British film comedy East Is East at the beginning of the closing credits, and in the Holby City episode "Tough Love" in 2009. It was also sampled by MC Lars for his song "Ahab" about Moby-Dick.[citation needed]

Music video[edit]

The video, like the song, is intended to show the tedium of touring. The passing of time is shown by the change of outfits the band are wearing, their slight changes in appearance, the selection of different hotel rooms they are seen in and the assortment of hotel room keys displayed. Footage is sped up and slowed down, and scenes are rewound and repeated to add to the film's effect.
