Shania Twain’s Ka-ching video starts, “We live in a greedy little world that teaches every little boy and girl to earn as much as they can possibly, then turn around and spend it foolishly.” It goes on to say “Our religion is to go and blow it all so we’re shopping every Sunday at the mall.”
It starts out a bit like Pink Floyd’s “Money.” “Money get away. You get a good job with more pay and you’re okay.”
And James Taylor addresses the subject with “Money Machine,” saying “you can measure your manhood by it.” No youtube video to share on that one, darn it.
We all know the Beatles said that “Money Can’t Buy Me Love,” and therefore they didn’t “care too much for money,” but since they had plenty of it, I don’t know how much street cred they had.
And Notorious B.I.G. says it all in “Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems” — “I don’t know what they want from me. Like the more money we come across, the more problems we see.”
