Friday Quickie -- Common People

As many of you know, I fell head-over-heels in love with "Common People" by Pulp during my broke-as-a-joke 20's, and I'm an even bigger fan of the William Shatner version on his beyond brilliant Ben Folds-produced CD, Has Been. So how thrilled was I when the hubby sent around this Archie-reimagine of the lyrics?

See the original Pulp video here, and click here for the full-on Archie redux.

UPDATE: Re-reading this passage, I realize that it might seem that I'm saying that my husband, CH, did the Archie stuff, but that is not the case. Full credit and lots of blog hits should go to Chris at Chris's Invincible Super-Blog: History's Greatest Villian Since 2005.

Much love,

P.S. And don't forget to get your Quickie tickets. One more week. Blah, blah, blah. Click on the picture.

Oh etc, thank you for that. i am also a gigantic fan of the song, and I've actually never seen the video! Plus, of course the Archies are awesome. Thank you for newly invigorating my Jarvis Cocker obsession. : )
