Friday Five – Broke as a Nickel Watch

September 26, 2008

Money songs this week, since the economy is about to crater.

O.V. Wright – A Nickel and a Nail.  If you’re not familiar with this soul classic, you’ve GOT to click this one.

Johnny Winter and Dr. John – Love, Life, and Money.  Excellent live performance of a classic from Johnny’s excellent Alligator release “3rd Degree.”

Spinal Tap – Gimme Some Money.  As usual, Christopher Guest and company nail it.

Albert “Master of the Telecaster” Collins – If Trouble Was Money.

And the late, great Duane Allman arranges and plays the bejeebers out of Loan Me a Dime.  It’s long, but stick with it.
