Donnie & Joe Emerson – “Big Money” Video (Feat. Ariel Pink & Dâm-Funk) (Stereogum Premiere)

Two years ago Light In The Attic reissued Donnie & Joe Emerson’s 1979 LP Dreamin’ Wild, the album that yielded “Baby,” a song lovingly covered by Ariel Pink and Dâm-Funk around the time of the reissue. Last month the label released another Emersons collection called Still Dreamin’ Wild: The Lost Recordings 1979-81. One of the highlights from that set is “Big Money,” an uptempo New Wave track that feels like a more lighthearted precursor to “Maniac” from Flashdance. Appropriately enough, director Lydia Hyslop has graced the song with a giddy dance routine that gives that Sia video a run for its money. Ariel Pink and Dâm-Funk make a brief cameo. Watch and enjoy below.

Still Dreamin’ Wild: The Lost Recordings 1979-81 is out now on Light In The Attic.
