The idea of money is- bad. I honestly think we should either start of with money so that everyone has a chance of not being homeless or have no money at all instead have a choice to help or not -with work- because money does drag you down and cause stress

I love this song but never realized how slow it is. Was there a radio edit that wasnt so drawn out

Consider the field called rock 'n roll, today we break it down into genre. But all of that starting from the mid-50s till now, thousands and thousands of songs written, produced. You can't say it's number one, but it's one of the 50 greatest-eve r . A hundred years from now if we're still here as a people, someone will hear it and say - it's a masterpiece. And yes Sleepy Dreamer, I remember the video - Stephen

Bestest of the best of the'90s!! Does anyone else remember the video for this song, with the singer walking the sidewalks of New York City, just non-chalantl y bumping and banging into people. Hilarious.

These guys were forced to give all the royalties from this song to the Rolling Stones..... because some idiotic judge thought the stones were correct in assuming the tune was too similar to a Stones song.... what a bunch of morons.... like the Stones don't have enough money already..... I personally have never heard any stones tune that sounded identical to this.
