A new tune, because we’re not really in the money

Pubradio’s Marketplace has altered its music for “The Numbers” segment of the business program, during which listeners learn if the stock market is up or down. If it’s down, it’s “Stormy Weather.” If it’s up, it used to be “We’re in the Money.” But even when the market is up, who’s really in the money these days? So a composer was commissioned for a new version, which, according to the show, “better reflects the ‘cheeriness’ investors may be feeling when the markets tick up only a few points at a time when the Dow is hovering around 7,000 points.” Hear both versions here.
