Song Of The Week - Pulp - Common People
Need a movie connection? Well Sadie Frost appeared as the girl "from Greece” in the original video to this era-defining Britpop classic. And Jarvis Cocker appeared in the fourth Harry Potter film – as well as DJ’ing at the Deathly Hallows wrap party – something LastWord was privileged to attend.
On top of that, there’s a terrific doc on the making of this song from 2006, currently playing on the BBC’s iPlayer for another two weeks or so – which is well worth a look - https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0074fbj/the-story-of-series-1-1-pulps-common-people
We haven’t gone for the video though – wonderful as it is. We’ve opted for the night they stood in for the Roses at Glastonbury, and helped defined the entire bloody decade.
Hit “Play” already. Damn!
