#366 Pulp – Live Bed Show


I woke up a couple of mornings ago to Pulp’s “Live Bed Show”, the song lodged right in the middle of their unforgettable 1995 Different Class album. It was nowhere as anthemic as “Common People” nor as immediately tragic as “Disco 2000”, but its cynicism seemed to burn deeper than the rest of the record, with its protagonist struggling with life past her prime and only the reminisce of seven years ago, a memory that’s always left hanging. Struggling out of bed and dragging myself out of the house, I wasn’t quite sure what kind of past I was even identifying with when things were very different then, but the day soon took over, the sentiments quickly wore off, and I never even knew its name. – Dan.
