LucidSportsFan’s Awesome Old Song of the Week

calloway.i.wanna.be.rich.cassette.singleIn 1990 two brothers who went by their last name, “Calloway,” had their one and only major hit.  As far as stereotypical late 80’s/early 90’s pop music goes, I Wanna be Rich fits the mold perfectly.  The lyrics are also spectacularly uncreative; as a 13 year old I remember being very unimpressed by “I spend my money on lottery; my favorite number is 1 2 3…”  But the tune is catchy and it has a nice happy vibe to it; almost a reggae/steel kettle drums type of sound that makes you feel like you’re on vacation in the Caribbean.

I wonder if this song was enough for the Calloway brothers to reach their self proclaimed financial goals?  I think I bought the cassette single, but their cut of that .99 cents probably didn’t get it done.
