House Music All Night Long - This House Ain't Condemned!

For those who have yet to hear the newest Jarv Is song performed live, check out the below video from Ibiza the other night (jump to 02:30 to skip the technical issues and preamble including the naming of a palm tree). Lovely to watch him perform surrounded in colour and brightness rather than a dark concert hall - it kinda reminds me of a Saturday-morning kids TV show with mock-up scenery.

I think this is the most accessible, exciting thing he's written probably this side of the Millennium * 

Some proper synth and keyboard action that will surely delight anyone for whom Pulp 1992/93 reigns supreme, a synth-transition part recycled from Death II, heartbreaking minor-sounding violin in the chorus with soaring strings, a beat with an instant groove and lyrics and vocal delivery in classic Cocker pathos. Inventive bridge and overall song structure too. I think it's astounding and the one most likely to win him unlikely fans.

Ian Clark's the man for lyric transcribing (a few lines here are muffled but it's mostly clear), but have a watch and a few listens, I think you'll love it: 


* I may have said this about Girls Like It Too and Discosong a decade ago but what's the point of being a fan if you can't get a bit giddy every so often, right? Face it. You are young etc.

I like it. Everything looks to be shaping up nicely for the album.

Mind, Jungle Brothers' I'll House You was pretty special. For acid, like

Ha...yeah, hopefully it won't go the way of its predecessor...scrapped, right? #PeakPulpnerdtalk

I had a go at the lyrics to House Music but there's a couple of phrases I can't make out...

*

Lost in the land of the living room
Adrift in a world of interiors - it's serious

Who the hell would live in a house like this?
Head down in the basin (?), one foot on the pedal-bin
This ain't easy listenin'...

I was listening to house music all night long
And all day too
Waiting for you

Listening to house music all night long
And all day too
Yeah I was waiting for you
To come true...

Saturday night...(?)... in house nation
This is one nation under a roof
Ain't it the truth?
God damn this claustrophobia
Yeah, I should be disrobin ya' *
In a woodlit glade (?)
With the wind on your face
Everyone in the place...

Listening to house music all night long
And all day too
I was waiting for you

I was listening to house music all night long
And all day too
I was waiting for you
To come true...

Everybody - in the place to be
Everybody getting-off on the settee
Everybody checking-in and checking-out
Everybody - Everybody, in the house

Listening to house music all night long
And all day too
Waiting for you

I was listening to house music all night long
And all day too
Yeah I was waiting for you
To come true...

Lost in the land of the living room
Adrift in a world of interiors - it's serious


* His finest moment since "I saw her in the chip shop so I said 'Get your kit off''?
