Aloe Blacc "I Need a Dollar"

Yes, we know that this is the theme song to that goofy new show on HBO where the most witty and attractive "hipsters" on the planet hustle their way through the "mean streets" and "glamorous nightlife" of a fantasyland version of the Big Apple. Yes, we also know that the average shelf life of TV theme songs is about four days. But damn if this track from LA soul-slinger Aloe Blacc isn't the finest slice of vintage-sounding, piano- and horn-powered funk we've heard in quite some time. We're not usually big on nostalgia parties, but if you can't enjoy a few laps in the "I Need a Dollar" pool, you're officially dead inside.
