Everything about the soul infused Money Grabber makes it such a knock out. An adventure in mo-town, funk, soul and a bit of Jazz, Fitz and the Tantrums make music not out of place in the late sixties – with dapper suits to match. The blast of sax, the croon of the effervescent Fitz, and the gospel edge of Noelle Scaggs along with the expertise of the remaining band member (bringing the total to six) make for an inherently upbeat vibe.
Money Grabber moves swiftly for the tinkling of keys and a pained holler to a big band explosion. Unrestrained and exceptionally funky yet harmonised, the song calls for you to move your feet, clap your hands and shake your money maker.
A cutting offensive against the a past flame – “don’t come back anytime , you’ve already run me dry, this is your pay back, money grabber”. Although the lyrics are relatively simplistic they are beautiful styled and associable, and when mixed with the energy of the other instruments create some boisterous and rowdy.
