Top 15 Pulp Tunes

Whilst many were fighting over who was superior- Blur or Oasis, there were many sitting to one side of this musical battle wryly commenting that it was in fact Pulp, that was the better band. Some may have said this just to be different or because they were sick of hearing about Blur or bloody Oasis. However, there was a good point to be made with that statement. Pulp were one of the best bands of the period and for me personally one of all my all time favourite bands. My affection for them started when I first heard Razzmatazz all the way back in 1993 and rushed out to buy the 7″ single. Imagine my joy when I discovered they had already been knocking out tunes since 1983 and there was already quite the back catalogue for me to delve into. But, for me, it was with their 1994 album His ‘n’ Hers that my love for Pulp really peaked. It is still to this day, one of my favourite albums. I was lucky enough to have caught them live several times, but my favourite concert of theirs was when they supported Blur at Alexandra Palace in 1994. I was right at the front and was mesmerised by their performance and Jarvis Cocker’s delectable charm. Whilst, Different Class was a fantastic album, my love for Pulp did wane some from This is Hardcore onwards.

  1. I’m going completely off list with Have You Seen Her Lately and Bad Cover Version. I’d also like to make a case for the amazing duet with Lush – Ciao is my dream karaoke song 🤣

    Sadly, in the States the only Pulp song I ever heard was Common People and that wasn’t until William Shatner covered it.

      Ha excellent. Yes, don’t they were that successful over your way. They were very popular over here around the same time as Blur.

        Blur crossed the pond better than Pulp did. I’m sure I’m the only person I know that has even heard of Pulp

      Haha. Yes a band that was only popular over here, I’m afraid. Thank so much for still popping in though. Hopefully you might like my monthly “newsletter” that I’m going to start doing.

    Since this is actually the first time I have ever even HEARD of Pulp (I know *gasp*) on my first spin through, I’d say I like “Something Changed” and Lipgloss are a tie. Such fun discovering new music on my very favorite entertainment blog! Also I love the idea of your Just Another Monthly! A great innovation.

    I never really followed Pulp but I still liked them better than Oasis. Looking forward to Bjork, that’s for sure!

    Oh, Pulp. I still have the Different Class CD with those interchangeable covers, and it was the definitive soundtrack to that period in my life; drunk nights out in my hometown with my mates, mostly! Disco 2000 is my absolute favourite Pulp track, brings back so many memories, and actually, makes me shed a tear or two (shhh…don’t tell anyone…)

      Don’t worry *taps nose* your secret is safe with me. Disco 2000 brings back a lot of memories for me too. Aah our youth….
