Happy New Year!!
Ah, the full bellies after Christmas, the completely satisfied moans and groans of the overdoing it. And the empty pockets!!!
How long until payday again?
Here’s a tune from 1983 that sounds completely relevant today. Hey, I guess it will sound completely relevant any year. People will always be shorter of money than they would like….
It’s Jimmy Young’s Times Are Tight, a lovely little funky groove, which Paul Weller called his single of the year back in 1983, and subsequently covered. The Style Council version came from a bootleg somewhere but was originally from a Radio One concert from May 1983 with the Respond label bands. That’s the Questions backing Paul and Mick.
