"Take the Money and Run" is a song by Steve Miller Band which was the first song Miller let a rap group sample. He let Run-DMC use it in 2001 with Everlast also on vocals. Miller agreed only after hearing the song and liking what they did with it. In 2006, the band released a 30th Anniversary Edition of the Fly Like An Eagle album. Included as a bonus track was "Take The Joker And Run," which is an acoustic version of "Take the Money and Run" sung over an early version of "The Joker." (thanks, Bertrand - Paris, France) The title is also the name of an unrelated 1969 Woody Allen film. (thanks, Brett - Edmonton, Canada) The song was also done in a Country style by Canadian Julian Austin in 2000. It's on his Back in Your Life CD. The song always had a Country feel to it, so it works well with fiddles. Austin was born in St. John, New Brunswick.
