Seductive Barry

If you're not familiar with the band Pulp, Ovid says "go out and get them now!" Right now, I'm listening to their album This is Hardcore. It's a bit dark and at times is creepy in its sliminess, but the music is wonderful.

And while it may sound trite (you have to hear the sleezeball voice to really appreciate it), here's one of the lines I really appreciate from their song "Seductive Barry": I've wanted you for years. I only needed the balls to admit it.

Now who hasn't felt like that from time to time?
They're britpop, maybe some punk. Some of their songs are a bit reminiscent of David Bowie. The lead singer, Jarvis Cocker says "I've been compared to Alan Bennett and Mike Leigh, crossed with Barry White. A very strange grafting, that is."
What a great line. :) I'll have to check it out, even in light of your "creepy in its sliminess" comment, which did oog me out just a wee bit.
I've heard of them, but haven't heard them... yet.

With an endorsement like that, how could I not check them out? *grin*
ooooh, I like it!

And, I added you. I have been meaning to do so for a while, I keep running across you in other LJ places.

I love Pulp - Check out 'I Spy' on Different Class - A nasty little revenge fantasy if ever there was one.
