Following on from the success of Rock (mostly) songs with the word ‘fire’ in the title…, if someone asked you to come up with all the songs you could think of with the word money in the title, how would you do?

Well, I think I did okay. Check out my fairly comprehensive list:

  • What Do You Do For Money Honey – AC/DC *
  • You Never Give Me Your Money – The Beatles
  • You Stole My Money Honey – Stereophonics
  • You Take My Money – The Damned *

There’s a few of my favourite genre in there (* rock), but not enough to include it in the title this time. One surprise, given their obessession with bling and looking flash, is that there weren’t more from the rap and R&B fraternity.

And my favourite?

Well that’s an easy one. Look carefully, I’m in that audience somewhere…

Cash, dollars, broke, loaded and more…

If we extended the search to include any word remotely linked with money, I’m sure there’d be a whole lot more songs, but as the classic phrase from Idiocracy goes: “I like money”.

Sadly, though I’m not poor, I don’t have enough of it yet to require investments advice or any other financial advice for that matter. Perhaps if I win the Euro Millions this weekend?

Then I can get my pool table (see Log Cabin Envy!!). Wahay!!

In Conclusion…

Hmm… It was nice dreaming for a second. Can you think of any more songs with money in the title?

Well, stick them below…

An EXTREMELY Brief Analysis

I found it interesting that I couldn’t think of any original punk rock songs (I’m not saying there aren’t any!) with the word fire in the title. After all, pyromania is a fairly anarchic affliction and you’d think it would be deserving of more coverage from that most anarchic of music genres.

That said though, the award for best use of the word fire in the list above has to go to techno-punk legends, the Prodigy.

There, told you it was brief!

On a Serious Note

Playing with the old Swan Vestas is never a good idea. Whilst it makes for a good tune, fire is dangerous and can kill.

If you’re intent on being a twisted firestarter though, you might want to consider going on a fire safety training course to learn how to use a fire extinguisher.

And remember, in the case of a genuine emergency, the UK number is 999, which ironically is a punk band.

Over to You…

There’s bound to be loads I’ve missed. Stick ’em below and to make it interesting, let’s open it up to include fire related songs with smoke, burn, hell, etc.. in the title.
