Song of the Day – “Money (That’s What I Want)” – The Flying Lizards

A friend recently posted a soulful version of “Money” by David Gray. (The original was recorded by Barrett Strong.) It doesn’t matter how soulful the version is, I still find myself thinking about the clanking, monotone version by the Flying Lizards.

It was a surprise hit by a bunch of art-school friends back in 1979. The Lizards broke up by 1984, but bandleader David Cunningham continues to do multimedia pieces for display.
