I think I remember reading that this was the first time that Mark Webber feaured on a Pulp album for the stylophone solo.

One of my favourite songs, and maybe my favourite music video ever. The jukebox in our regular only has one Pulp song on it, and I'm so glad it's this one.

I forgot that the Great Expectations version of the song was a different mix. Thanks for the reminder. It's too bad someone had a crisis of nerve and substituted a poor remix, but then again, Pulp often had bad luck and timing when trying to establish themselves in the U.S.

2008-11-22T10:19:00.000-05:00

Are you aware that the cut of Like a Friend on the Great Expectations soundtrack is totally different from the bonus cut that concludes This is Hardcore.

If the song failed to light up the charts, that's your reason. The Great Expectations soundtrack did brisk business (it was more popular than the movie), but the version of Like a Friend that Pulp submitted for the soundtrack was a weak remix of the original. It sounded like the work of an amateur learning ProTools.

It probably did more to poison Pulp's reputation in the US than it did to help them. People who rushed out to Walmart to pick up the soundtrack for the new songs by Chris Cornell and Tori Amos must have scratched their heads when they heard this peculiar and very jarring Pulp song.

Hey Richard, thanks so much for the comment. I'm glad someone finally contributed the meaning of that phrase. Thanks as well for the kind words regarding the blog. Glad you like it!

To "ladder your tights" is to snag a a pair of pantyhose, tearing a hole in them.

Great blog by the way, spent the afternoon reading through it all. Cheers!

The ten-minute drone is indeed neat/perverse, but I'm also happy to have a version of the song without it. Thanks for the kind words about the blog. Things should be back to normal here soon enough!

2008-04-03T23:29:00.000-04:00

Love this song, and while I knew "Like a Friend" was a North American bonus, I had no idea about the ten minute synth note - sounds kind of neat, in a perverse way!

Hurry back once you're done moving, the blog is great.

2008-03-26T05:16:00.000-04:00

You've pinpointed something here about 'synthesized backings' that I've always felt - the poignancy of falling short of the real deal, particularly when it has some sort of thematic relation to the music, can be very powerful. It's something Pulp deployed to great effect.

Hey Graham. Thanks so much for the kind words and the insight into this great song.
