Bastille are no strangers to mashing up classic ’90s pop jams, as evidenced by their Corona vs. Snap! tour de force, “Of The Night.” And this time around the London band chose Michael Jackson‘s “Earth Song” and Pulp‘s “Common People” to blend together, for their BBC Live Lounge performance.
With the BRIT Awards just around the corner, this particular choice of songs is a bit of a wink back to the 1996 Brits, when Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker rushed the stage during Jackson’s overblown performance of “Earth Song” and playfully mooned the audience.
Above, catch Bastille’s soulful “Earth Song” and “Common People” performance, and then see the notorious prank Cocker pulled at the Brits below.
