Eddie Money/Take Me Home Tonight

“By September, the gregarious big man was no longer with us.”

Take Me Home Tonight – The Best Of (Cleopatra)


2019 was a pretty rough year for Eddie Money. With the past 15 years clean and sober, Money contracted pneumonia after heart valve surgery. The following month, it was discovered that he had stage 4 esophageal cancer. By September the gregarious big man was no longer with us.

This “Best Of” is actually a rerecording of his biggest dozen hits, recreated with love and care. While I would normally avoid a release like this in favor of the original recordings, Money’s family will undoubtedly see a bigger portion of the proceeds than they do from his Sony catalog. I grew up in the 80’s, so these songs, and Eddie Money, will always bring a smile to my face.
