I saw in the 'What will Pulp play?' that a couple of people have suggested making a separate thread for dream setlists, songs you want to hear, etc, for the 2023 Pulp reunion (can't believe I'm typing those words - I'll probably wake up in a minute!)

It's so difficult to choose - I'm leaning towards something like this for my ideal setlist:

---

Do You Remember the First Time?

Pink Glove

Razzmatazz

Disco 2000

Sorted for E's and Wizz

I Spy

Babies

Underwear

This Is Hardcore

Sunrise

The Birds In Your Garden

After You

Common People

 

The Fear

I Want You

Help the Aged

Party Hard

 

O.U.

Love is Blind

Something Changed

---

(The ordering may need a little tweaking)

Swap-out I Want You for Bad Cover Version, add Misshapes at the end or the start and I think we've got a deal.

I wonder if the Pulp songs played live by Jarv Is... are more likely now (His'n'Hers, She's A Lady and My Legendary Girlfriend) to be performed by the group that wrote them. I don't think the latter two were played at all in 2011/12.

Call me a Debbie Downer but unless they do something really radical with them, I could quite happily go to my grave never hearing Babies, Sorted or Something Changed ever again. Good songs obviously, but man they've been done to death. I guess I saw them at too many near-identical festival/outdoor gigs from 2000-2002...

My ideal setlist would be one where they surprise me!

Yeah, agree on Something Changed. It was and maybe still is my favourite Pulp song but it's a ballad and can suck the energy out of a set. Best enjoyed when listening to the recorded version.

Could take or leave E's and Wizz (oh, err) but I don't think I'd ever tire of Babies.

Oh, good call on Cuckoo. Imagine they revived it after JC's recent solo version. Would be amazing.

I've never liked This Is Hardcore the song very much (and it takes up too much of the set), and I think Sunrise is mildly overrated by fans, so i'd take those two out and put in Bad Cover Version, Birds In Your Garden and Sylvia.

Sylvia...lovely verses, stadium-rawk choruses and long guitar-schlock solo which sounds faintly ridiculous for Pulp on record but live would actually be great fun, I think.

 An EP with a couple of brand new ones and a couple of 1999/2000 songs re-recorded would be lovely.

As for songs I'd want, I couldn't really fit it in a list, but I'd die to hear any of these:
Don't You Want Me Anymore
Happy Endings
O.U.
Sheffield Sex City
My Legendary Girlfriend
She's a Lady

There's a chance for the last two now that Jarvis seemed to like playing them on his own :)

Lipgloss should be a staple song. Such a shame that they barely played it after '95.

It's A Dirty World is my favourite Pulp song never properly released/played live. That would be mega.

I agree on "Lipgloss", they played "Babies", "Do You Remember the First Time" and "Razzmatazz" over and over so why not "Lipgloss"? Sure, it wasn't a top 40 hit, but only just. It would have been recognised by anyone who bought the album.

"It's a Dirty World" would be an epic live song. That's the first thing I thought when I heard it. I think that it would have been played regularly during 1998 if it had made it onto the album.

Still think it should have been their comeback in 1997 with an edited single version.

Re Lipgloss, I think they've said before that they found it difficult to pull-off live.

I'm not sure how they could edit it without it losing impact. Perhaps if they trimmed the intro and outro a little bit then jumped straight from the "I wanna dance that's all" to "all around the world..." without the fade out in between. That would probably only lose around 30 seconds

Yep, that's how it was played by a DJ when I requested it at a Pulp night at Highbury Garage or somewhere similar a few years back biggrin

Some great shouts in this thread - It's A Dirty World and Cuckoo Song would be fantastic!

Now, here's one that might divide the room somewhat - I would love them to chuck in a one-off performance of the infamous Crabs. With it being mentioned in Good Pop, Bad Pop and it being Pulp's 45th anniversary year, I think it'd be fun for them to throw it in (perhaps if they do a gig for the 'Save The Leadmill' campaign?) - a sort of 'please indulge us' moment akin to when they did Back in LA perhaps? Admittedly, it would be taking up valuable 'real estate' in the setlist, but I'd love to see it once - it'd be a hoot!

 Yes I remember reading they actually put a lot of effort into trying to do Lipgloss but couldn't get the sound right somehow.

Orchestra backing would just be the icing on the cake. Ive seen James and Lightning Seeds with a full orchestral backing and it was just amazing.
