THE STORY OF ‘COMMON PEOPLE’: BBC DOC ON PULP’S DEATHLESS MASTERPIECE.

“Common People” by Pulp is probably the consensus pick for best British pop single of the 1990s, and there’s little doubt that not many songs share its exultant and biting qualities. Brimming with intelligence and anger, “Common People” has become the definitive Britpop anthem, securing Jarvis’ status as a rock and roll dandy of the first order forevermore.

Pulp had four albums before Different Class, and two after, but even if you were to pay close attention to “The Story of ‘Common People,’” a 2006 BBC documentary about the song, you might be forgiven for not noticing.
