JDIZZY's 365 # 212: Common People

Common People - Pulp (1995)

Here, ladies and gentlemen is the finest moment of the Britpop movement. Pulp's performance of this ode to "class slummers" at The Glastonbury Festival in 1995 is as critical to its popularity as The original British Invasion was stoked by The Beatles appearing on Ed Sullivan. How could Jarvis Cocker ever follow this up? He chose not to, instead becoming a Ray Davies for our generation, which is never a bad thing to do.
