Errr, thanks a lot for the plug, SM, but I believe it was the other way round. :)

A classic by Elvis.

The Drifters' version is quite weak.

Though i love The Drifters, my second favorite vocal group the first being The Clovers, but i've never really dug their "Money Honey". It just sounds weak to me, imo.
