My Top 1000 Songs #452: Lawyers Guns & Money
What's not to love about "Lawyers Guns & Money," from Warren Zevon's 1978 LP Excitable Boy? Sure, "Werewolves of London" got most of the attention, and the title track is pretty great (albeit yet another ugly song about a murderer, and we just had one of those). But "Lawyers" is the highlight for me. Killer guitar riff. Wickedly amusing lyrics ("I'm hiding in Honduras; I'm a desperate man. Send lawyers, guns, and money, the shit has hit the fan").
Plus, as a lawyer, there just aren't enough good songs about us.Live 1980:Live on tv, 1989:
