Pulp fans rejoice! The BBC 3 documentary, The Story Of Common People has been uploaded to YouTube! If you haven't seen this before (I hadn't until today) the entire film centers around "Common People," Pulp's 1996 smash song. The hour long documentary reveals fun facts behind the song including: Jarvis Cocker wrote the keyboard parts himself (much to the dismay of the rest of the band), the song is about a Greek girl he really did meet in art school, and Cocker sort of choreographed the video (including Michael Jacksonesque dance moves) himself.

There's a ton of great interview footage with Cocker and other key players. You'll also get to see Cocker on a television game show, there's interview footage with his mom, and the guys from Franz Ferdinand even appear for a few talking heads. Good times!
