    Any other Pulp fans out there? Was just listening to a song that I absolutely love by them called Mark of the Devil--can't believe it came out in 1986.

    " . . . Smiles left unfollowed start to haunt you
    Chances that perished long ago
    The devil is waiting in the bathroom with your worthless soul
    The years pull their weight down on your cheekbones
    The nights out are hanging from your waist
    The years float like dust held in the sunlight with an aftertaste
    And your past is just a bedroom full of implements of cruelty
    And a list will bind your eyes as you grow old
    But you want to join the laughter sharing simple shreds of feeling
    But you fidget and your heart is growing cold . . . "

    Guess there aren't many Pulp fans about so I'll post something else. This is from the song Little Girl (With Blue Eyes). Think I read somewhere that this song is about his mother.

    " . . . You're just a little girl (with blue eyes)
    Everybody looks at you (well, it's your day)
    And you're stepping from the black car
    But you'll be getting back in soon (and on your way)
    Little girl (with blue eyes)
    There's a hole in your heart and one between your legs
    You've never had to wonder which one he's going to fill in spite of what he said . . . "

    "...her house was very small..."

    It's such a bourgeois statement!

      Lol, I never thought of it that way! Maybe his house was small too. I love Cocker's story telling. I actually find this song incredibly sad, especially when he says "you can even bring your baby."

      Thanks for replying. For a moment there I thought maybe not one person on this site had heard of this band.

        smile Why I saw them quite a lot on TV in 95-96. Jarvis Cocker recently toured the globe as DJ (don't they all do it nowadays - Martin Gore, Boy George, Peter Hook, etc.), so Pulp is not that all forgotten, although it did take a long time for them to be recognized and get popular. A lesson for other bands, too.
