Verrassend: Pulps ‘Common People’ verkozen als favoriete Britpop-anthem

De nineties blijven niet alleen bij ons voortleven. Ook in Groot-Brittannië denken ze met genegenheid terug naar die tijd, vooral omdat Britpop toen aan een tweede leven bezig was. Om de 20ste verjaardag van die muzikale beweging te vieren, werd onder de luisteraars van BBC Radio 6 gepeild naar hun favoriete Britpop-anthems. Pulp haalde het verrassend voor Oasis, maar zij versloegen wél Blur. 

1. Pulp – Common People

Sing along with the common people,

sing along and it might just get you through,

laugh along with the common people,

laugh along even though they’re laughing at you,

and the stupid things that you do.

Because you think that poor is cool.

2. The Verve – Bittersweet Symphony

Cos’ it’s a bittersweet symphony this life…

Trying to make ends meet ,

you’re a slave to the money then you die.

3. Oasis – Don’t look back in anger

Please don’t put your life in the hands

Of a Rock n Roll band

Who’ll throw it all away

4. Oasis – Wonderwall

And all the roads we have to walk are winding

And all the lights that lead us there are blinding

There are many things that I

Would like to say to you but I don’t know how

5. Blur – Parklife

I get up when I want

except on Wednesdays when I get rudely awakened

by the dustmen

(Parklife)

6. Suede – Animal Nitrate

Well he said he’d show you his bed

and the delights of his chemical smile

so in your broken home he broke all of your bones

now you’re taking it time after time

7. Blur – Girls and boys

Girls who are boys

Who like boys to be girls

Who do boys like they’re girls

Who do girls like they’re boys

Always should be someone, you really love

8. The Bluetones – Slight Return

You don’t have to have the solution,

you’ve got to understand the problem.

And don’t go hoping for a miracle.

All this will fade away.

9. Pulp – Disco 2000

I said let’s all meet up in the year 2000.

Won’t it be strange when we’re all fully grown.

10. Ash – Girl from Mars

I know you are almost in love with me, 

I can see it in your eyes. 

Strange light shimmering over the sea tonight, 

And it almost blows my mind 

Opvallende afwezige: Song 2 van Blur.
