Fifty Five


Seems that a couple of mates out there celebrated birthday throughout the last weeks. It's my birthday today and I am fifty five. Another one year older, however, wiser? I don't know and it's not necessary to know it. This song is one of my all time favorites. Released in 1981 Flying Lizards version of Barret Strong's Money is a classic masterpiece of the past-punk and New Wave era. Reduced to the minimum with a steady rhythm the vocals tells us what money can stand for. They did many more excellent cover versions but this one is the best in my opinion.

And, by the way - happy birthday Morrissey!
