Money On Your Side - played at 3 speeds.
When asked about the worst of Duran's cherished cherries, you cant got further wrong than this track. All the versions I've heard seem to play the song too slowly, so I tried to get it sounding more like normal speed. The second version here is probably closest to what its supposed to sound like, or at least the speed.
I know I posted about the play speed of the Notorious album before, wondering if the master was pressed at the wrong speed, but with this one it seems a bit more obvious.
Its still a horrendous track, and certainly gets into the top 10! list of stinkers.
As for the song itself - it's okay. Not the best thing Duran have ever done, but not the worst either. It sits at the lower end of the spectrum, but is certainly better than Venice Drowning and Downtown.
