A bouncy traveling bass line and sparse keys underscore the indie pop number “Money” by The Drums on their album “Portamento” released in 2011 on Frenchkiss Records.

You will be joining in when the band gets to the chorus… even on the first listen. Why? Because it’s SUPER catchy.

The singer wants to buy his girlfriend a makeup gift… but he has no cash…

The Drums ask the question, how do you make things rights with your girl if you have empty pockets? They assert that it’s too late… you can’t.

They only leave you singing… “But I don’t have any money… but I don’t have any money.”

But in real life… a kind word, a hug, a sweet gesture, a walk in the park, or a love note in a hand made card may work just as well. Unless she wants a wedding ring… then The Drums are right.
