ArchiePeople07.jpgThe are many witty/goofy sites out there right now offering various détournements of classic comic strips/books, but it’s going to take effort to top the cast of Archie doing a dramatic reading of the lyrics to Pulp’s “Common People.” And like the commenters here, I just hope can someone do this for the whole Pulp catalog. Like maybe Mr. Weatherbee and Miss Grundy taking a duet on “Help The Aged” or Big Ethel singing “Birds In Your Garden” to Jughead? (Moose singing it to Dilton? I’m not partial.)

    You get points for knowing what detournement is. Also, for brining this gem to my attention. I hope someone does Wilco + Snuffy Smith.

    I remember when Don Kirshner first offered “Common People” to the Archies. Jughead was so upset, he punched a hole in the wall, and said to Don, “That could have been your face!”

    I guess they worked it out.

    I hear Cathy does a blistering version of “Razzmatazz”.

    FYI, amongst the comments is a link to an adaptaion done by Jamie Hewlett of Gorillaz fame.
