Song Notes: This imaginatively titled song is a setting of the Beverly Hillbillies theme song lyrics to Dire Straits' "Money For Nothing". (The title comes about as a rights issue—some folks say it was on Dire Straits' management's side, others the Screen Gems' side; either way, though, it's not the preferrred title.) Mark Knopfler actually plays guitar on this—he insisted as a part of giving his OK. (Al didn't mind.) It's not the best thing in the world, but it's OK. A lot of people hate this—I don't know if it's really worthy of _hate_, but it's not the best thing he's done either. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
