er selvfølgelig Pulp's "Something Changed", der insisterer på ikke at være melankolsk, for om to timer mødes de, og alt bliver lykkeligt, men det er for fanden netop ikke sket endnu, og det er selvfølgelig ikke umuligt, at det måske vil ske - men det er for fanden en Pulp-sang og musikken er heller ikke ligefrem lystelig - så derfor er det til syvende og sidst en kun MÅSKE melankolsk meta-sang, men er måske-melankoli i virkeligheden ikke endnu mere melankolsk end stensikker, klokkeklar melankoli, der jo netop er en dejlig tryg melankoli?:
I wrote this song two hours before we met.
I didn't know your name or what you looked like yet.
Oh I could have stayed at home and gone to bed.
I could have gone to see a film instead.
You might have changed your mind and seen your friends
Life could have been very different then but something changed.
Do you believe that there's someone up above?
Does he have a timetable directing acts of love?
Why did I write this song on that day?
Why did you touch my hand and softly say.
Stop asking questions that don't matter anyway.
Just give us a kiss to celebrate here today
When we woke up that morning we had no way of knowing
That in a matter of hours we'd change the way we were going.
Where would I be now if we'd never met.
Would I be singing this song to someone else instead I dunno
But like you said something changed.
