Is Pulp's "Common People" the best song of the Brit Pop era? I reckon it could be.
Jarvis came up with the tune on a small keyboard he'd bought from the a second hand record shop in west London. When he played it at rehearsals to the other members of the band the next day most of them were unimpressed.
He then wrote the lyrics inspired by his time at Saint Martin's. Pulp first performed Common People at the 1994 Reading Festival. In a later interview, Jarvis revealed that he had written the majority of the lyrics the night before the band's performance, and he had trouble remembering them on stage the following day.
