Hello. We all love voting and ranking stuff, right? So let’s do it with some artists’ back catalogues. This will be a series of threads (unsure of timeframe etc at the moment) so if you don’t like an artist then don’t you worry your sweet ass, another will be along soon after. This time we’ll be voting on songs by PULP
HOW IT WORKS
So, voting will be similar to ones I’ve done before. You have 10 points to distribute however you like, across the entirety of the artist (Pulp in this case)‘s entire catalogue of songs. Album tracks, singles, b-sides, whatever you like, if I can google it and verify that it’s by them then it can get points. You can give all 10 points to one song or 1 point to 10 songs or anything in between. I’ll then calculate the points totals and do a results thread where the boards’ favourite song by whoever the subject is will be revealed.
PLEASE DM ME TO VOTE, VOTES POSTED IN THE THREADS WILL NOT BE COUNTED
Lots of great short songs but my faves are the epics that build and explode spectacularly so could quite happily just split this between This Is Hardcore, Wickerman and Feeling Called Love, all amazing!
When I first saw that track title I wondered if it was a reference to Barry Adamson since JC had guested on the first track of his Oedipus Schmoedipus album a year or two before. (It isn’t, as far as I could tell.)
(This isn’t to you specifically, Theo, but) Common People is an incredible song, and one of the best pop songs of the past 30 years. There are Pulp songs I love more but I would not begrudge it taking top spot.
