The problem with this was that, firstly Archie wasn’t into guys, he was into just about every girl in Riverdale. Secondly, Jughead was still trying to figure out if what he was feeling was just a fluke, and being around Archie just confused him. And thirdly, Jughead didn’t want to like him at all. His feelings were a burden, a painful ache at the back of his head. It was easier to pretend to still hate Archie then tell him that he might have feelings for him.

Summer Madness was originally found on Kool & The Gang’s 1974 album Light of Worlds, with the live version finding a home on their 1976 album Love & Understanding. If you’ve got a keen ear you’ll notice it’s been sampled by DJ Jazzy Jeff for The Fresh Prince’s and his song Summertime (1991), by Best Kept Secret for Wale’s Mama Told Me (2009) and by Dr. Dre in his and T.I.’s banger Popped Off (2012).
