Jarvis Cocker talks about Pulp`s track for `Tomorrow Never Dies`
Alongside Blur and Oasis, Sheffieldâs Pulp was part of the dominating triumvirate of â90s Britpop. Led by the literate wit of Jarvis Cocker, Pulp penned the defining song of the U.K.âs decade, âCommon People.â The band also submitted a song for the 1997 James Bond film "Tomorrow Never Dies", but as Time Out
discovers in an interview with Cocker, fate would see another artist win the song contest...
Q: Pulp also wrote a James Bond theme for Tomorrow Never Dies
that the studio never used. What happened?
Jarvis Cocker: It was weird. They set up a kind of American Idol situation, where they asked about nine different artists to come up with a Bond song. They listen to nine different attempts of working âtomorrow never diesâ into a lyric. We were told on a Wednesday that the deadline was Friday. Consequently, I was really pissed off when they went with Sheryl Crow
Q: I fear for the people trying to write the lyrics for the new Bond film, Quantum of Solace.
Jarvis Cocker: They could have my song âQuantum Theoryâ! Iâll just change the lyrics up a little bit.
