10 Songs Pulp Almost Definitely Will Not Play in NYC This Week

04/10/2012 1:10 PM |


Tonight and tomorrow Pulp play Radio City Music Hall, their first New York shows in 14 years. As the band have only played our city three times before — total — and Jarvis hasn’t done any Pulp songs during his solo visits, it’s kind of a big deal. You know you’re going to get “Common People” and “Disco 2000″ and “This is Hardcore” and “Do You Remember the First Time” and most of their other most loved songs. None of this ten song Bizzaro world Greatest Hits are likely to be played, but would be welcome surprises between “Sorted for Es and Whiz” and “Babies.” Don’t count them out entirely, though. I originally was going to include “Like a Friend” from the Great Expectations soundtrack on this list but then they played it last night on Jimmy Fallon. Maybe there’s hope for “Mile End” yet.
