The "We're In The Money" Blues

Listeners of “The Numbers” segment on American Public Media’s Marketplace, a daily recap of the stock market’s action, thought its upbeat version of “We’re in the Money” as background music is inappropriate for the times. So American Public Media came out with a bluesey version — eerily reminiscent of “St. James Infirmary” — which, says American Public Media, is also a nod to the song’s Depression-era roots.
