Radio 86, side B, track 4: “Money” by Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd - MoneyOh, Pink Floyd, I don’t really have anything to say about this one.  As I’ve mentioned, I’ve never been cool enough to “get” you, but I’ve become more and more enamored with your music the older I get.  I also don’t have a lot of thoughts on your thoughts on money because you pretty much summed it all up.  It would always be nice to have more money, I’ve heard that $75,000 is supposed to be the sweet spot when it comes to how much money is enough.  If I get there, I’ll let you know how that goes.  Frankly, though, Pink Floyd, I’m sure I’ll find some way to throw all my money away regardless of how much money I make, whether it’s comic books or CDs or these days, latch hook kits.  In my early 20s I was barely scraping by, and you don’t have to feel sorry for me, most of it was because I was really bad with money and that hasn’t changed.  If 20-year-old me knew what I was making now and that I was still riding the debt train. . .well, 20-year-old me probably wouldn’t be that surprised, honestly.  I always have good intentions, Pink Floyd, I really do, but I was born to be a consumer, I guess.  I’d write more, but I’ve got a new latch hook kit I’ve got my eye on. . .
