I really like the looped screaming at the beginning. It gives it that extra zing!

I like this more than the original I think.

It is pretty funny, I think. But musically (and vocally) is not my favorite. It'd probably be middle/upper middle of my list.
English doesn't just borrow from other languages, it mugs them on the street and checks their pockets for loose grammar.

I quite like Alimony. I wouldn't rank it in my top ten, but feel it's a bit underrated as a song goes. Certainly a better number off of Even Worse when compared to say, Velvet Elvis or Stuck in A Closet with Vanna White. Both of those I feel bring that album down.

I think Velvet Elvis is a great song! Stuck in a Closet is OK, but really only funny the first time. For me, Alimony is by far the worst song on Even Worse. However, I guess I was wrong before. I really thought more people disliked this song.

alimony is another song that fans don't talk about much. I like it though. I heard the acual song on the radio, and thought it was al's version.

Yeah, Al did a really good job of sounding like Billy Idol.

he certainly did. what's strange is that I was thinking about al's song right before I went into the kitchen and heard it.

Are you sure it's a "Money" sample, and not just a stock sound of a register going?

Just listen. You can hear the "Ch-Ching" of the cash register, then the tearing of something, then the clinking of coins. It's in the background, but I swear its there.
