Something Changed, by Pulp

A song about possibilities. "What if?". "What if I had gone to the cinema?" One of the top moments in Different Class (1996, and still hard to pick a top moment in an album full of them). One of the most charming and touching songs in Jarvis Cocker's carreer. The song that best defines for me in how strange ways love comes. A song that might have never existed. "We had no way of knowing that in a matter of hours we'd change the ways we were going". Just like with love, after it has happened, this song changes one. Even though it is a tender song, Cocker's sexy voice makes it sound so dirty (not as dirty as "Pencil Skirt" or any of his other sex-obsessed songs, but with that sinful feeling that makes the whole thing so irresistible). The kind of story I would have killed to be there and film it.
