When he first conceived of Countess LuAnn De Lesseps's "Money Can't Buy You Class," producer Chris Young was setting out to make a song that was just one step above Muzak. "I thought of the backing track as something I would hear in Bergdorf's if I was shopping," he told the Journal. "I thought, what would I hear at the W Hotel?" Much to his surprise, Young's ability to turn a tuneless cougar into a pop sensation has made him practically the recording industry's new Timbaland, he tells the Journal.
Mr. Young...added that the response to his appearance [on Real Housewives of New York City last week] has been "befuddling." "Every time it airs, I'm inundated with 150 to 220 people who want to work with me. This week alone, probably 1,400 emails. I don't even know who's who and what's what! The Ramones are calling. Salt n' Pepa."
That's awesome! Especially considering that most of the Ramones are, you know, dead.
