Pulp – Disco 2000 (album: Different Class 1995)

This next song is by Pulp. It is such a cool song and a cool video clip. They are quite a cool band. Their music style is quite similar to Blur, Suede, oasis and the rest of the Britpop movement. 

This song talks about a guy that is in love with his friend and dying to know what it would be like to meet her again when they are much older. My friend and I made a pact to meet again on the 24/1/2000 in a place we used to call the “Magic Square” , we named it this way because it used to be our meeting area where we use to chat and smoke cigarettes and it was a cubic structure that was in front of a building area. It was just a place where we could be alone and do whatever we liked without anyone to watch us. The 24/01 is a birthday of another good friend of ours. We have decided on this date because we have ruined her 16 birthday. We have decided from this day onward that this will be the most important day of our lives. We didn’t mean to ruin it for her but we accidently did and we felt sorry for it for a long period. That was back in 1993 before this song was released. When I heard this song for the first time, I thought it was quite ironic that it talks about the same subject except that my friend was a girl and we just wanted to meet again to see how we turned out and what has changed in our life. She got married in 1998. We got together again on my wedding day in 2007. I’ve reminded her of our secret pact; we both wondered why we never kept this pact. Check out this gorgeous song...

What’s this song about?

The song tells the story of a narrator falling for a childhood friend called Deborah, who is more popular than he is and wondering what it would be like to meet again when they are older. The song is based on true events. Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker said "the only bit that isn't true is the woodchip wallpaper." (Wikipedia – Disco 2000)
