Jarvis Cocker "Running the World”

Though he’s made some guest appearances here and there, this is the first original song Britpop’s former leading misfit has released since 2001’s disappointing Pulp Love Life. Now with a wife and child, you’d think Cocker would be ready to settle down. This surprising gem, however, finds him in a surly mood, making a run for his crusty old man facade 20 years early by crooning, "cunts are still running the world” in true biting form.
