I Need This Song

I was watching a Roy Lichtenstein documentary, and the song"(Money) That's What I Want" was played during the opening credits. I loved it. I couldn't find this version on Itunes, but the Waylon Jennings and the Barrett Strong versions are fabulous.

But I did find it on YouTube. As an added bonus of my discovery, there is a really bizarre ukulele segment. Who are these Flying Lizards? Woot!

They also do a great version of "Sex Machine." Seriously.

There's a great wikipedia entry on Money (That's What I Want). It says that the song was #288 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

The Flying Lizards version was the first one I ever heard of the song and I loved it. I haven't heard it in a long time and I've never seen what they looked like. Thanks!
