Song of the Day: "Don't Let Him Waste Your Time," Jarvis Cocker

The ex-Pulp frontman proves he's still got it.

You might remember Jarvis Cocker as the leader of '90s Brit popsters Pulp, a band that deserves to be remembered for more than just the classic "Common People" single. Cocker's upcoming first solo album, "Jarvis," is a stunning reminder of just how talented and clever a singer and songwriter the man is. "Don't Let Him Waste Your Time" is the first of two Cocker tracks that I'm posting over the next couple of days. The song is a witty midtempo number about an insidious seduction, which, as his fans well know, is a subject Cocker covers better than almost anyone. Make sure to check back tomorrow for the second Cocker tune.
