Songs with the word MONEY in the title (with youtube links)

Updated on March 6, 2014

We all love it, we all want it, we can't get enough of it, it's that mean green, money. So here's a bunch of songs that talk about it.

"Money" by Barrett Strong, the Beatles, and an awful version by the Flying Lizards. Strong's version is the original, and the best of the three.

"Money" by Pink Floyd. One of classic rock's most famous songs.

"Money Changes Everything" by Cyndi Lauper.

"You Never Give Me Your Money" by the Beatles. The original version is part of side two of Abbey Road, which was the "connected" side of the album, with a bunch of songs forming a medley beginning with "Because", and ending with "The End". It was written as a black comic piece about the band's struggles with its record label, Apple Records.

It was also one of the songs used in the "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" movie, starring Peter Frampton and the Bee Gees, ostensibly, as the Beatles. The movie was a commercial and critical disaster, although I liked it. This is the movie version of it, sung by Paul Nicholas and Diane Steinberg.

"She Works Hard for the Money" by Donna Summer. One of her biggest hits, from 1983.

"For the Love of Money" by the O'Jays. A soul classic, it's been used as the theme music for Donald Trump's show "The Apprentice".

The Bulletboys did a great remake of it in 1988.

"Gimme Some Money" from the funny movie "This is Spinal Tap". If you've never seen this movie, SEE IT! This song has recently been used in American Express commercials which is too funny. Basically, this cut was their first hit when the Tap was known as The Thamesemen. Of note is their first drummer was played by Ed Begley Jr. He died in a bizarre gardening accident. Here's the song:

"Blue Money" by Van Morrison. I find this song incredibly annoying, but you be the judge:

"What Do You Do For Money Honey" by AC/DC. From the "Back in Black" album.

"Money Talks" by AC/DC. From their 1990 comeback album "The Razor's Edge". A great song.


"Ain't Got No Money" by Bob Seger. Love this song! Sounds like "Fire Down Below". Both of them rock. From the "Stranger in Town" album.

"Gimme Your Money Please" by Bachman Turner Overdirve.

"Money For Nothing" by Dire Straits. One of the iconic music videos in the early years of MTV, ya know, when they actually played music videos instead of a bunch of lame reality shows. Sting does background vocals on this one. One of the biggest hits of 1985.

"Money in the Bank" by John Anderson. One of the few country stars I can stand:

"Money Song" by Monty Python's Eric Idle. Oh, I've got ninety thousands pounds in my pajamas,...

For my good friend, Joe Crowe, the "hauntingly beautiful" theme music of the WWE Hall of Famer Ted DiBiase, "Money Money Money Money":

And finally, since I remembered this when my sister used to torture me by watching lame tv shows like the Brady Bunch and Gilligan' Island, here's the Partridge Family, doing "Money Money", after which Keith and Laurie argued over the sexist nature of the song.

That's all I can think of. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go pay bills,....
