I couldn't give a Flying Lizard.

Here's three things about the seminal cover track 'Money' by The Flying Lizards you might not know.

The single version of 'Money' is a convenient 2 minutes and 32 seconds in length, whereas the album version is a whopping 5 minutes and 52 seconds long.

The latter end 3 minutes and 20 seconds of the album version is not only longer than the single edit by nearly a minute, but reduces into a mish mash of out-of-tune dub basslines & general monkeying about with the echo effects, and not in a cool 'Bela Lugosi's Dead' kind of way either.

(3) I'm still going to be quite annoyed about the 3 minutes and 20 seconds of my life that I'll never get back when I go to bed tonight.

The rest of the album was shit too.
