Common People

Over the weekend I was talking, briefly, about William Shatner's album, Has Been, and most specifically the cover of Pulp's 'Common People'.



If you've forgotten how awesome it was, here's a mash-up of good old Spock and Kirk cartoon slash to the song, and if you've never heard it, now's the time to do so. If you think it might suck, it's alright to think that, but you're wrong.

My kids love that song. And I think it is pretty cool as well.

I really love this cover of the song. Shatner and Joe Jackson give it so many more layers than are in the original, drab, whiny Pulp version I heard.

Though I will admit that this Pulp video brightens up the song a lot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EMd9zyJLgA

But Shatner and Jackson still rule!
