Songs You May Have Missed #101


Pulp: “Something Changed” (1996)

Jarvis Cocker and company explore the role of Fate’s fickle hand in love. This one may bring a tear if you’re so inclined:

I wrote this song two hours before we met/I didn’t know your name or what you looked like yet

I could have stayed at home and gone to bed/I could have gone to see a film instead/You might have changed your mind and seen your friend/Life could’ve been very different but then: Something Changed

Do you believe that there’s someone up above?/And does he have a timetable directing acts of love?

Why did I write this song on that one day?/Why did you touch my hand and softly say/Stop asking questions that don’t matter anyway/Just give us a kiss to celebrate here today: Something Changed

When we woke up that morning we had no way of knowing/That in a matter of hours we’d change the way we were going

Where would I be now if we’d never met?/Would I be singing this song to someone else instead?/I don’t know but like you just said: Something Changed
