Men At Work – Everything I Need (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 30th June 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

“Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi”

Originally posted February 24, 2011

“Everything I Need” was a single released in 1985 by the Australian group Men at Work. The song was written by Men at Work singer/guitarist Colin Hay and the recording was produced by Hay with keyboardist Greg Ham. The song appeared on the group’s album Two Hearts.

The tune has a bouncy, midtempo pop/rock feel, and is marked by a loud, thwacking drum rhythm and a prominent slide guitar solo.

“Everything I Need” was not a major hit. It peaked at #47 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was in fact to be the last Men at Work single to make the U.S. charts.

Simply Red – Money$ Too Tight (To Mention) (The Cutback Mix) (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 8th July 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

A. Front

“Money’s Too Tight (to Mention)” (sometimes stylized as “Money$ Too Tight (to Mention)” in some of its single and album releases) is a song written and first recorded by The Valentine Brothers, John Valentine and Billy Valentine, and released as a single in 1982.

It was covered by the British pop/soul group Simply Red in 1985. The Valentine Brothers’ version peaked at #41 on the Billboard R&B charts, while the Simply Red single went to #13 on the UK charts in 1985 and #28 on the Billboard U.S. pop chart in 1986. It was Simply Red’s first UK single. The song was also an international hit, reaching the Top 40 in several countries.

The lyrics concern a person with economic problems, and mentions Reaganomics, a set of economic policies implemented by U.S. president Ronald Reagan in order to encourage the growth of the American economy. The lyrics include the lines “the old man that’s over the hill”, and “did the earth move for you, Nancy?” He wants to borrow money, first from his brother who responds,”Brother I’d like to help you but I’m unable to”, then to his “Father, Father, almighty Father” who then responds “Money’s too tight to mention”.
