Jarvis Cocker explains the truth behind Common People
Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker has told BBC Radio 5 live how he wrote the iconic song 'Common People'.
Speaking to Richard Bacon in front of a live audience in Sheffield, he said the girl in the song was based on a real person he met at Central St Martin's College of Art and Design.
Just like in the song, her father was wealthy and she wanted to "live like common people" in Hackney.
