Brixton Academy, 1995

Much as I love the William Shatner tribute (esp. the Star Trek mash up video I posted a long time ago) this is the real thing. Cocker is a bona fide rock/pop hero, & it must have been pretty amazing to have been fifteen or so when this anthem first came out - a real "it" moment in popular culture. If you look on youtube, you can find a 2008 documentary that traces the genesis of the song, with some fun clips of a young Jarvis. This brings out all the English in me!
