Pulp - Disco 2000

Pulp Different Class“Disco 2000” è la traccia numero 5 di “Different Class”, quinto album del gruppo “Pulp”. Uscito nel 1995, questa canzone è il terzo singolo estratto dall’album. I Pulp sono un gruppo musicale rock britannico, fondato nel 1978 dall’allora quindicenne Jarvis Cocker. Il nome originale, poi abbreviato, era “Arabacus Pulp”. Attivi soprattutto negli anni ‘80 e ‘90, la loro musica è un misto di rock e pop con elementi di disco music. L’attuale formazione è composta da Jarvis Cocker(voce, chitarra, tastiera addizionale), Candida Doyle(tastiera, seconda voce), Mark Webber(chitarra), Steve Mackey(basso) e Nick Banks(batteria). La canzone “Disco 2000” parla della storia vera dell’innamoramento infantile del cantante Jarvis Cocker per la sua amica e vicina di casa Deborah che è più popolare di lui; il cantante si chiede che accadrebbe se i due si rivedessero quando sarebbero cresciuti. L’album “Different Class” vinse il “Mercury Prize” nel 1996. Nel 1998 i lettori del magazine “Q” classificarono “Different Class” come il 37º miglior album della storia.

Testo
Oh we were born within one hour of each other
Our mothers said we could be sister and brother
Your name is Deborah, Deborah
It never suited ya
And they said that when we grew up
We’d get married, and never split up
Oh, we never did it, although I often thought of it

Oh Deborah, do you recall?
Your house was very small
With wood chip on the wall
When I came around to call
You didn’t notice me at all

And I said let’s all meet up in the year 2000
Won’t it be strange when we’re all fully grown
Be there 2 o’clock by the fountain down the road
I never knew that you’d get married
I would be living down here on my own
On that damp and lonely Thursday years ago

You were the first girl at school to get breasts
And Martyn said that you were the best
Oh the boys all loved you, but I was a mess
I had to watch them trying to get you undressed
We were friends, that was as far as it went
I used to walk you home sometimes but it meant
Oh, it meant nothing to you
’Cause you were so popular

Deborah do you recall?
Your house was very small
With woodchip on the wall
When I came around to call
You didn’t notice me at all

And I said let’s all meet up in the year 2000
Won’t it be strange when we’re all fully grown
Be there 2 o’clock by the fountain down the road
I never knew that you’d get married
I would be living down here on my own
On that damp and lonely Thursday years ago
Do it
Oh yeah
Oh yeah

Ah Deborah do you recall?
Oh, your house was very small
With wood chip on the wall
When I came around to call
You didn’t notice me at all

And I said let’s all meet up in the year 2000
Won’t it be strange when we’re all fully grown
Be there 2 o’clock by the fountain down the road
I never knew that you’d get married
I would be living down here on my own
On that damp and lonely Thursday years ago

Oh what are you doing Sunday baby
Would you like to come and meet me maybe?
You can even bring your baby
Oh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
What are you doing Sunday baby
Would you like to come and meet me maybe?
You can even bring your baby
Ooh ooh oh oh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
