"It's a really funny tune because it's about not having any money to spend in an expensive place, so it's full of irony," says singer Tamar Korn about why Brain Cloud decided to perform the Rodgers and Hart staple "Manhattan." It's also a very pleasing, toe-tapping energizer, as evidenced by the group's performance of it.
