"Big Bucks" is a song about the hopes of making big money, and "Who knows, says Barrows, maybe 'Big Bucks" could become the "go-to" song for all of us who may never even come close to making that kind of money."
And…whenever you do any follow-up stories on Executive Pay or megamillion dollar deals for athletes, or CEOs who get millions of dollars in a severance deal just for getting fired, and whenever you hear a politician talking about Income Inequality after they've just attended a $50,000 a plate fundraising dinner…
…at least you can vent some of your frustrations about money with a song about money called "Big Bucks"...the lyrics are timeless and universal.
HERE IS SOME BACKGROUND AND INFORMATION ABOUT THE SONG AND ITS AIRPLAY:
Barrows originally wrote "Big Bucks" as a poem in the mid-1980s after some second-string second baseman, who seldom hit over .200, got a multi-million dollar deal just for playing baseball.
Then, in 1998, Barrows teamed up with a musician named Gary Warren, and they co-wrote the song version of 'Big Bucks."
The song was released on a two-song CD in 1999 to radio stations that played rap and hip-hop.
"Big Bucks," and another song on the CD called "Run For Office," a satire on politics, both got some airplay. "You can also hear a FREE CLIP of 'Run for Office' at www.barrows.com/
NOW, BACK TO "BIG BUCKS"...
Some of the lyrics about the hope of making big money go like this:
"It don't don't take brains. It don't take brawn. I only hope it don't take too long."
Some of the other lyrics about the frustration about not making big money go like this:
"How do they get in those jobs with the big bucks? How did they get there? Who and or what did they know?"
The song goes on in this vein and it ends with the lyrics...
"In the game of money, competition is tough. Keep going for your dreams until you find Big Bucks, Big Bucks."
Followed by..."I need money. I need money. Big Bucks...I need money."
..."Don't we all," says Barrows. "Too bad I can't play football. Too bad I can't hit home runs. Too bad I don't have one of those jobs where you get millions of dollars just for getting fired. Maybe I'll make my fortune if enough people download these songs or maybe some rock star might want to purchase the publishing rights to these songs," he adds. Like the song goes..."Keep going for your dreams until you find Big Bucks, Big Bucks."
So, if you're not making big bucks, and if it doesn't look like Lady Luck is coming your way anytime soon, and if your lottery tickets just aren't coming through with the big bucks, at least you can enjoy a FREE CLIP of a great song about money, says Barrows, and, if money is indeed the root of all evil, you're going to love a song called "Big Bucks."

"Let's see, says Barrows...if billions of people download the song, maybe I'll make some big bucks, soon? But, if most of the people only stream the song, it could take forever, because the revenues from streaming a song are still only fractions of a penny." (That's a whole story by itself says Barrows, and streaming revenues are causing a lot of disruption in the music industry.")
