My score: lookie above Oh wow, look at all those 8s! It's been 10 eliminations since the last "WALK OF MY LIFE" song went, guess it was about time for another. Produced by Bardur Haberg ("LOL", Amuro Namie's "It') and written by him, Hayden Bell (Lena Katina's "Never Forget"), Sarah Lundback Bell (Girls' Generation's "Trick"), Ylva Dimberg (Red Velvet's "Jumping", "Jumping" and "Body Talk") and Kumi, the track was a b-side on the "HOTEL" single and, unlike "TURN AROUND", it got a music video to its name. A pretty uneventful one at that, but still. This elimination also makes "MONEY IN MY BAG" the highest rated song of that single overall. I quite like this, to be honest. The energy of the whole thing is so engaging you definitely want to move to this. I appreciate how it starts with this big chorus and basically never lets up. It might be a bit to the track's detriment as well, since the song is so short and mostly only chorus due to the verses and the middle 8 being so incospicuous. Anyway, we are here to talk about that chorus so let's do this. Those trumpet like synths, or whatever really those sounds are, are definitely the highlight of the whole thing. There is now such a funny image of this urban track performed live with the live band in my head. The song is about all that mula and partying. Tonight's uproar's a secret Give me the vodka with that memory erasing effect I've guaranteed it on the internet Regrets in my bag (c) @otenkiame It's still a kii, that apparently Kumi doesn't drink. The song didn't really click with @RUNAWAY (7), "this was never a fave b-side of mine, so to have it make the album tracklist was kind of a letdown to me." Still a 7, huh? @Weslicious (8) gives a concise description of the song, "Short, sweet and sassy as." As what? @Yeziirl (8) is... I... What? "Kinda naughty, but makes me irritated for some reason, I guess there is something grating about “i want that ding ding digiding che che chekaching cheng” thing." You of all people cringe about this? HA! That's funny, tell another one! The track gave @otenkiame (8) everything he needed, "One of those trashy tracks where Kuu just throws in every urban dictionary word she can find to try sounding hood...And I honestly like it a lot. It's fast, aggressive, and edgy. Plus, the track's length - merely two and a half minutes - keeps it from getting overly annoying." Don't forget your @Cutlery (8), when you get into your getaway car, "When I listen to Money in My Bag I feel as if I’m in a car chase up and down the highway and streets. The hook drills its way into your head rather easily" The hook indeed gets you hooked hehe. @Music Is Death (9) just wanted more, "A banger that I kinda wish would also go harder? I don’t know, I feel like the energy to this isn’t cranked up to 11 the way it should be. Or maybe it’s my energy that’s not cranked up enough for this. I love the handclaps though." Ah, yes, the handclap connoisseur himself has given his blessing. This was performed live quite a few times more in comparison to the single's a-side. Here it is in a medley during "W FACE" tour, where my dream of real trumpets playing the synth part wasn't realized. Oh well.
