About how money can corrupt ones personal principles.
David Gilmour: Roger came in with 'Money'. I've still got his demo of it
lurking around somewhere, of him singing it with an acoustic guitar. It's
very funny. And we did it pretty well the same as the demo, apart from the
middle section with all the solos and stuff, which we wrote and put together
in the studio or in rehearsal. But we made up the cash register loop. We
were always making tape loops.
Background Voices: 5:55 - "huhuh! I was in
the right! Yes, absolutely in the right! I certainly was in the right! That
geezer was cruising for a bruising!" (Paddy Watts referring to Chris Adamson)
6:06 - "Why does anyone do anything!
Yeah! Why does anyone do anything! I don't know, I was really drunk at the
time! I was telling him, he couldn't get into number 2. He was asking why
he wasn't coming up freely, after I was yelling and screaming and telling
him why he wasn't coming up freely. It came as a heavy blow, but we sorted
the matter out."(Henry McCulloch).
Comment: A re-recorded version by David Gilmour to get around contractual
restrictions on the original recording. Gilmour played every part of the
song with the exception of Dick Parry's sax solo. The cash register effects
were used from the original version.
