Time to get a 1990s wiggle on
I think there’s a strong case to be made for ‘Common People’ by Pulp as being the greatest single of all time. There. I’ve said it. It’s just one of those tunes that I find impossible to get sick of, no matter how many times I hear it. It remains the ultimate indie-disco anthem and if it’s not belted out by the DJ – and all the punters – at this night, then I’ll eat my santa hat, pom-pom and all. Jarvis is on the flyer for this night along with some other 90s icons including Will Smith, Geri Halliwell out of the Spice Girls and Britney Spears, which may give you some other pointers to the type of feel-good pop tunes that you’re going to hear at this night. (There’s also a pic of Macaulay Culkin in his ‘The Scream’ Home Alone pose, but I doubt they’ll be playing any of his tunes.) What else have they got? Live music too? You betcha!
