UNDER THE INFLUENCE: Songs that somehow could be from Pulp (but they weren't)
Permalink  
 


Hello!

As a new member of this illustrious forum, here's my contribution: A first list of songs where I find a clear influence of the best band in Sheffield (and the world). I mean, a STRONG influence. Someone else is encouraged to add any?:

Hanging Out With Her - Baxendale

Contact Lenses - Baxendale

Neato - Baxendale (Pulp goes to the disco)

The Nineteen Sixties - Baxendale

No Regard - The Fresh & Onlys (doesnīt look something from the "It" era?)

King's Cross - Cinerama

I Didnīt Buy You Flowers - Spearmint (I find a heavy "Something Changed" influence here)

 

I'll add more later, if anyone finds this interesting...

I was going to mention The Look by Metronomy as it's been winding up for the past couple of years but I have recently learned (with the last 30 seconds) that it's an actual fact a sample!

I love Spearmint but I don't believe they're influenced by Pulp as such. More a case of having a lot of common roots I think.

Baxendale! Now that's a name I've not heard in a while.

Tim Benton recently made a quiet return to song-writing as a new one-man act called Parenthesis.

 

I posted this video of his first single "16 Weeks at Number 1", a few weeks ago on this site to deafening silence. Would love to hear opinions on it, as I think it's fab.

 

 

And even better is Synthesized Swimming, which appeared on the WIAIWYA Olympics Comp. Which is totally Pulp-ish.

Sounds much more like something Lawrence would do than Pulp, much more Denim/Go Kart Mozart. I love Lawrence and the song I've linked is definitely his 'I Spy'.

@weed: Didnīt know fabulous "The Look" by Metronomy had sampled Pulp!!! Which song have they used?


@sturdy: For me, there's no doubt about the way Pulp influenced Shirley Lee's band. Thing's like "We're going Out" even look like lost demos from Different Class era. Not to mention Shirleys' speech at Left Alone Among The Living...soooooooooJarvis!


@Fuss Free: Thank you very much for those links!! Didnīt know Tim Benton was back, I'm glad to see he hasntīlost his pop intuition. Anyway, nothing he has done has (yet) improved the peaks he conquered with "Hangin' Out With Her", or "I Built This City" (You can see the review i did for my blog here:
http://thesongswelove.wordpress.com/2012/10/30/191/
...Maybe with google translator you'll be able to read it)


@Saw119: I LOVE IT!! Definitively agree about the "I Spy" touch..I appreciate your contribution,and yes, that was the point: to discover songs that could belong to best band in the wolrd ever, even if they donīt "sound" exactly like them..itīs not so difficult to imagine "Retro -glancing" at Jarvis' voice. i'll try to do like you in my next contributions to this list, adding a video link so everybody can check the pulp-ish tone...


@Ian: no idea, but will investigate. thanks!

I bought that "Red Heaven" compilation by Cherry Red years ago to get "Everybody's Problem" on CD. There are a couple of songs on it that sound like Pulp. I can't find the CD for the life of be but I think one was by In Embrace

I don't think so. I've been searching in the net after weed's comment, and it's obvious that there's a coincidence in notes, but I wouldnīt say Pulp has been sampled in this track...anyway, there are many points of view:

No the keyboard just sounds reminiscent of Feeling Called love to me.

Misfits by The Kinks sounds like a Pulp song.

Maybe Pulp more Kinks influenced then.

Anything more, er, high profile? Kapranos' vocal style and some of the quirkier elements of Franz Ferdinand songs and the pop experimentation on MGMT's second album definitely betray signs of having listened to plenty of Pulp imo.

The Girls link...they/he's great and a huge Suede fan so I guess it's possible but don't really hear a link with Pulp in the songs mentioned.

I remember Franz Ferdinand's singer doing a twitter Q+A and saying he loves Pulp
