"A Little Soul" is a song by British alternative rock band Pulp, from their 1998 album This Is Hardcore. It was released on 8 June 1998 as the third single from the album, charting at number twenty-two in the UK Singles Chart (see 1998 in British music).

B-side "Like a Friend" was featured in the 1998 film Great Expectations, and a music video for the song was produced for US music television networks featuring footage from the film. Two versions of the song exist: the "film version" (as featured on the CD1 single at 4:33 in length) and an edited version (at 3:58 in length). The song was also used in the season 4 finale of The Venture Bros. and the Daria episode "Depth Takes a Holiday".

B-side "Cocaine Socialism" surfaced as a "proper recorded version" on the 2006 deluxe edition reissue of the This Is Hardcore album. The song features near identical music but completely different lyrics to the song "Glory Days" which features on the album.

CD two b-side "That Boy's Evil" features no vocals from Jarvis Cocker and was originally released as a white label vinyl by Cocker and Mackey's side project The Chocolate Layers and features spoken word samples from other media in a similar style to Black Box Recorders' "The Facts Of Life (Chocolate Layers Remix)"
