S14, Ep3 How To Fail: Jarvis Cocker

How To Fail With Elizabeth Day

Todays' guest is Jarvis Cocker: musician, writer, broadcaster. He was the frontman of Pulp, one of the most successful 90s Britpop groups whose hit, Common People, turned Jarvis into a star at the age of 32. He joins me to talk about the vagaries of fame, his failures in acting and academia, abandonment by his father, being raised by a household of women and the impact this has had on him, as well as divorce, co-parenting, clearing out the loft and why ephemera is an important part of our culture. Plus, he gives me a Birmingham-based anecdote that I think might be one of the greatest metaphors for celebrity I've ever heard.Jarvis's book. Called Good Pop, Bad Pop, is out TOMORROW https://www.penguin.co.uk/books/111/1114959/good-pop--bad-pop/9781787330566.htmlHe will be in conversation at the Royal Festival Hall in London at 7.30pm on Friday 27th May.

Jarvis Cocker - I Just Came to Tell You That I'm Going

Tłumaczonka Pana Tomka

Dwie rzeczy trudno jest powiedzieć w życiu: "kocham cię" i "odchodzę". Przerobiony po angielsku francuski klasyk o rozstaniu, został stworzony pierwotnie przez mistrza prowokacji i skandalu jakim był Serge Gainsbourg, który podnosił lekką, francuską chanson do poziomu sztuki w latach 60/70.W oryginale tekst nawiązuje do "Chanson d'automne", wiersza Paula Verlaine'a, z którego Gainsbourg co nieco cytuje. Jest tu tylko jedna zwrotka, powtarzana nieustannie. Zabieg nieszkodliwy, skoro tytuł mówi już wszystko. Anglik Jarvis Cocker (ex-Pulp) zachował ten układ, podobnie jak wierność tekstu, a nawet dodał francuski akcent ale zrezygnował z kobiecego szlochu w tle. I nie dośpiewał ostatniego wersu, który w oryginale brzmiał: " ...bo zrobiłaś mi zbyt wiele".★ Support this podcast ★
