The Best ‘Money’ Songs Ever

Digg this story ?

I was thinking about what topic to write on for my next post, and nothing came to mind: I was fresh out of ideas! Then the song that was playing on my computer at the time gave me an idea: the song was the Beatles (anyone who is a regular reader here will know that I am a Beatles nut) song Money, That’s what I want so I thought I would make my own compilation of all the best ‘Money’ songs that were made!

Pink FloydI may be a Beatles nut but my fav money song ever, has to be the iconic Money by Pink Floyd. What a song! Contrary to what a lot of people believe, I think Dark side of the Moon is the best Pink Floyd album.

New Car, Caviar,
Four Star Day Dream
Think I’ll buy me a Football Team

AbbaA song that I practically grew up with is the pop classic from Abba, Money, Money, Money. This song is all that’s good about pop music. Good tune, beat, and great vocals.

Money, money, money
Must be funny
In the rich man’s world
Money, money, money
Always sunny
In the rich man’s world

Dire StraitsA song that is perhaps my introduction to real rock would be the Dire Straits song from Brothers in Arms, Money for Nothing. Irreverent, humorous and almost self deprecating, this song remains a personal nostalgia piece. Great track!

Look at them yo yos, that’s the way you do it,
Play the guitar on your MTV,
That ain’t working
Money for nothing and chicks for free

BeatlesSince Beatles are my fav band ever, I picked two of their songs (I didn’t pick Cant buy me love) to include in the list: song Money, That’s what I want and Baby you’re a rich man too. The latter is a bizarre song with random lyrics like:

Baby you’re a rich man,
Baby you’re a rich man,
Baby you’re a rich man too.
You keep all your money in a big brown bag inside a zoo.

Any money songs you can think of which should have made it to the list?

  5. Soon as I read your title, I thought of the Pink Floyd ditty:

    Money, its a gas.
    Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash.

    Back to work I go.
