"Turn the World Around" by Harry Belafonte is also in 5. Fun tune.
"Whipping Post" by the Allman Brothers is in 11 (for the verses).

Actually it is easier to groove if you count 1-2-3+1-2 (a waltz and polka).

 
In my ears, it sounds much more like 1-2, 1-2-3 than the other way round...

I believe "Money" is primarily in 7/4 time; "Breaking The Girl" is in "waltz" time: 6/8.  Other than this song, the best-known song in 5/4 time is probably the theme from the TV program "Mission: Impossible".  Nick Drake's "River Man" is also in 5/4 time.  

 
Good catch, Proclivities, I think I started answering a different question than OP asked; that is, songs featuring non-common time signatures.....which reminds me of King Crimson and Frank Zappa.  I'm also struck how different it is to try and remember what something sounds like versus what something looks like.

I think the most famous (Rock) example would be Money by Pink Floyd (which happens to be a 10 rated song by me, just like this one!)

I think Radiohead has done a bit of funky time signature stuff...although I'm not a huge fan so maybe others can chime in on that.  Likewise, Tool "experimented" with 5/4 signatures too, check out the song "Schism."

And off top of my head, maybe the Red Hot Chili Peppers got funky on "Breaking the Girl" - I'd have to hear it to confirm but I could swear it is. 

And overall it's an interesting question, since most of what we here in Western music is 4/4.  Heck, check out Ravi's sitar stuff (or any authentic Indian music) and try and guess what the time signature is.  It's totally different and not easy to figure out at first due to the complexity.

He also has some very nice 7/8, and you might want to listen to Nova Nova's Tones, it's 11/8 (!)

Much in the manner of Miles Davis' Kind of Blue, this definitely strikes all the right frequencies and tonifies the proper nodes to elevate!

Sweetie, this "last played" thingy doesn't work! I just heard a song, which I heard yesterday and today, and on "last played" it says 2002!!

THIS song playes EVERDAY a minimum of 3 times, when one listens like me from morning till night to RP during work.

It shares this fate with so many other songs here, and they are ALL mentioned under "last played" years ago.

With some songs though it might work, I admit I do not check it with every song, but as Dave Brubeck is a favourite of mine, i know what I hear here on a daily basis.

Check it out for yourself just for the fun of it, and do not make yourself the judge of others.

Being a real "knowitall" and a busybody is not really a very appealing trait, Chuck! {#Doh}

 
This song has indeed been played 3 times in the past 30 days — and has never been played more than once per day, ever.  You can step back through the playlist history here to confirm that:   http://www.radioparadise.com/rp_2.php?#name=Playlist&offset=0

I don't know what you're listening to, but it's not RP.

I suggest that when I song is rated a "10" over 2000 times it opens up a special "11" category for that song.

This album is a classic and considering the comments and ratings, RP listeners would love more jazz. I know I would. I am certain Duke Ellington would fit right into the playlist; very interesting music.
