Celebrity Rock: Kids In America (2017)

Kim Wilde's American breakthrough, 1981's "Kids in America", has been covered by a number of artists over the years, including the Muffs and the Donnas. The Jonas Brothers couldn't leave well enough alone and rebooted the song as "Kids of the Future" for the movie, "Meet The Robinsons", about a decade ago.

Well, producer Greg Berlanti has done it again.

After inserting musical numbers into episodes of The Flash in each of its three seasons, Berlanti, knowing what he was working with on Riverdale, decided to give fans a taste of what could happen if they can form The Archies on the show. With Josie & the Pussycats also in the fold, there's plenty of bubblegum pop to be recycled.

Anyway, in this clip, Archie (K. J. Apa) and Veronica (Camilia Mendes) duet on "Kids":

The Archies' iconic "Sugar, Sugar" is on the season 1 soundtrack----performed by Josie & the Pussycats. Go figure.
