    I went to the San Francisco Giants game last night, and the sound system played about a minute of "Take Me Home Tonight" between innings, and "Baby Hold On" also. (Apparently Money lived in the Bay Area much of his life.) Ian Crouch, The New Yorker:

    Extolling the virtues of Money’s catalogue—with its bluesy electric guitars, roadhouse harmonica, gated reverb on the drums, synthesizers, and plenty of cheesy sax—makes one feel a bit like Patrick Bateman, in “American Psycho,” going on about the secret artistry of Phil Collins’s worst songs. But Money contributed a series of earworms that have, thanks to classic-rock radio, burrowed themselves into the American pop psyche.​

    Also, apparently Money didn't initially like "Take Me Home Tonight," which he has no writing credit on! Disillusionment! Ah well, life may be complex, but 80s gold hits will never die... :p
