Money Songs We Love

I have been inspired by some recent posts over at Budgets are Sexy outlining some lyrical lessons from two recent pop song hits. It got me thinking about other songs about money that might help motivate and inspire you. Here’s my list of money songs, business, and work songs come to mind:

Money Songs

Here are our six favorites!

Money for Nothing – Dire Straits (1985)

Best lyrics:

Now look at them yo-yo's that's the way you do it
You play the guitar on the MTV
That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Money for nothin' and chicks for free

Takin’ Care Of Business – Bachman Turner Overdrive (1973)

Best lyrics:

You can get to work by nine
And start your slaving job to get your pay
If you ever get annoyed
Look at me I'm self-employed
I love to work at nothing all day

Gold Digger – Kanye West (2005)

Best lyrics:

(She gives me money)
Now I ain't sayin' she a gold digger (when I'm in need)
But she ain't messin' with no broke n……
(She gives me money)

Opportunities (Let’s Make Lots of Money) – Pet Shop Boys (1985)

Best lyrics:

I've got the brains, you've got the looks
Let's make lots of money
You've got the brawn, I've got the brains
Let's make lots of money

Money – Pink Floyd (1973)

If the cash register and coin sound effects were not enough.

Best lyrics:

Money, get away
Get a good job with more pay and your O.K.
Money it's a gas
Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash
New car, caviar, four star daydream,
Think I'll buy me a football team

She Works Hard for the Money – Donna Summer (1983)

Best lyrics:

She works hard for the money
So hard for it honey
She works hard for the money
So you better treat her right

U2 – Silver & Gold (1989)

No real tie to money within the song lyrics, as the title would suggest. Just one of my favorite bands of all time and I have some cool pictures to share.
