Sunday Night Video: The Things I Do For Money

There are songs that you hear when you were a kid that stick with you, and during my childhood, this song by the Canadian group The Northern Pikes was one of those for me.

I am sure there are a few Canadian readers out there of a certain age who remember this band for some of their other songs, notably She Ain't Pretty and Teenland. But to me, I think The Things I Do For Money is their best single. Maybe it is because it somehow matches my modern-day cynicism, or maybe I just like the sound, who knows, but I find myself compelled to listen to it whenever I find it.

I really like this track, I'll try and find some more of their stuff.

Modern-day cynicism? It just looks that way.

Arjan: It should be around the internet.

Jeremy: Clever, very clever.
