Pulp – "Little Girl (with Blue Eyes)" (1985)

Little girl (with blue eyes)
There's a hole in your heart 
And one between your legs
You've never had to wonder
Which one he's going to fill

(Oh my!)

The English alternative rock band Pulp released "Little Girl (with Blue Eyes)" on a four-song single in 1985.  That was a decade before they became wildly successful with the album Different Class, which reached #1 on the UK albums chart and included four top 10 singles.

Pulp was unable to replicate the success of Different Class and broke up in 2002.  But they reunited in 2011 and played a farewell concert in Sheffield (the band's hometown) that was filmed and turned into a documentary titled Pulp: A Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets.  

Here's the trailer for that movie, which debuted at SXSW earlier this year.  It may or may not be coming to a theatre near you:

"Little Girl (with Blue Eyes)" is a dark song – a very dark song.  You probably don't want to think too much about the lyrics.

In fact, you may not even want to listen to "Little Girl (with Blue Eyes)."  But if you do, here it is:
