Money and Run

Album: Where Did The Night Fall - Another Night Out (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • Nick Cave lends his vocals to this song. Said the Australian Gothic Rock musician: "I've always had a huge soft spot for UNKLE - their pop sensibilities, their hooks, big choruses, their super-treated production - so when they sent me some music to sing over I jumped at the chance. The song they sent was great too - something wonderfully dense about it, like T Rex's 'Metal Guru' or something. I wrote a lyric - something desperate sounding to run counterpoint to the joyful racket of the music."
