"Brinx Job" as written by and Stephen Malkmus....
It's so funny
We went right down to the store
We got the money
So we'll put you down
We got the money,
We got the money,

We got the money
we got the money,
We got money,
We got the money
Ho! We got the money now
And I won't even let you...

    General Commentit took me a long to get into Pavement. So far, the only albums I've heard completely are Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain and Wowee Zowee. Two completely different albums. Crooked Rain was easy to love, Wowee Zowee...not so much. After countless listens, I found myself only replaying certain songs. Rattled by the Rush and AT&T were the only songs I played for months. After awhile though I ventured to the other songs and found that this was one of first ones to catch my ear. this song is just so different.
    from the way malkmus sings the first two lines to the chanting of "We got the money"
    to me, this song was recorded in a frenzy. which is the way anybody feels when they first have a lot of money. like ooh, what will i buy first? it's one of the only things we as humans have power over. what we get to do with our evil money. this is definitely one of my favorite pavement songs though, quite the contrary to what the last user posted about this song.

    General Comment"Two crooks on the getaway, giddy with the idea: WE GOT THE MONEY. Bob Hoskins stars as Jake the lame-brained ringleader" says Malkmus.

    General Commentwikipedia:

    The Great Brink's Robbery was an armed robbery of the Brinks Building in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, on January 17, 1950.

    The robbery resulted in the theft of $1,218,211.19 in cash, and over $1.5-million in checks, money orders and other securities. At the time, it was the largest robbery in the history of the United States. Skillfully executed with only a bare minimum of clues left at the crime scene, the robbery was billed as "the crime of the century". The robbery was the work of an eleven-member gang, all of whom were later arrested.
