Calloway – “I Wanna Be Rich” – (1989)

Fun fact, you can’t buy this song on Amazon as a download, you have to buy the whole CD. And, big whoops, this song actually came out in 1989 although I associate it as totally 1990s – probably because of that 90s pop/dance beat (and the fact that it charted in ’90). “I want money… lots and lots of money… I want the pie in the sky.” Even today this remains a fun, upbeat song that I don’t mind listening to in public (that’s the real test of a song’s lasting popularity – whether or not you can allow other people to listen to you listening to it). This hit #2 in the U.S. in 1990 and was the only hit from Cincinnati-based Calloway.
