Music aimed at people who want to get rich and famous is nothing new. There are songs about money that have been made by some of the biggest stars in the world. There are even songs that tackle the negative aspects of money. For example, “Money” by Michael Jackson deals with the pitfalls of money, while “Billionaire” by Bruno Mars lists what he’d do if he was a billionaire.

Michael Jackson’s “Moneytalks”

Michael Jackson’s “Money” is one of fifteen new tracks on his 1995 album HIStory: Past, Present and Future–Book I. The song is a lyrical anthem to those who would do anything for money and exploit others. Instead of exploiting others, it is better to earn money with dignity and respect.

While Jackson was a pop icon, he was also a victim of abuse. This musical focuses on his life and career as a creative genius and survivor of abuse. While it doesn’t present a comprehensive biography, Margo Jefferson provides unique insight into the king of pop. She examines the king of pop through a variety of lenses, including celebrity culture, child stardom, gender, and victimhood.

The net worth of Michael Jackson’s estate has increased to $75 million. This is more than double the original figure of $75 million in 2012. The show also includes famous financial advisor Michael Campbell and Dean Koontz, two former directors of the New York Federal Reserve and a famous golfer. The estate is expected to earn $1 Billion in 2022.

Michael Jackson was an icon and a superstar, earning millions of dollars through record sales, concerts, endorsement deals, and merchandise. He spent over $40 million during his career. The money he earned from these sources was enough to live a lavish lifestyle.

Prince’s “Money Don’t Matter 2 Night”

“Money Don’t Matter 2 night” is one of Prince’s best-known songs. It was released in 1991 and was the fifth single from his Diamonds and Pearls album. It is often considered Prince’s best post-Purple Rain single. It has since been included on two greatest hits compilations. It was inspired by an old blues ballad.

Although Money Don’t Matter 2 Night only reached number 23 on the Billboard Hot 100, the song is a significant moment in Prince’s artistry. In it, the artist deconstructs the injustice of economic inequality and hammers away at the American dream. He even includes the lyrics to “Call My Name,” a song Prince also penned.

The song has become a club jam, despite Prince’s anti-capitalist lyricism. The irony of the song’s title is heightened by the video, which features footage of Donald J. Trump. Although Prince’s songs were generally akin to club jams, this song goes deeper. In addition to the lyrical depth, the song’s simple, smooth contemporary R&B sound allows the words to shine. The first verse follows the tale of a man who makes a bet but ends up losing. Prince then goes on to discuss the many victims of blackjack addiction. The song is a call to arms to all husbands and wives who hope their partners come home.

The music video for Money Don’t Matter 2 Night was released in 1990, and it was directed by Spike Lee. While Prince didn’t appear in the video, his message was clear. Prince aimed to make his artistry matter above money. He changed his name to a symbol in the mid-’90s, during a Warner Bros contract dispute.

Lana Del Rey’s “Rich Girl”

Lana Del Rey’s eponymous debut album was released in 2007, but was largely ignored by critics. The music, while catchy and accessible, plays to the dark side of her persona. Her songs reference Walt Whitman, Nabokov, hip-hop, classic movies, and doomed icons. However, some of her songs are too on-the-nose and the album’s title track is a bit silly.

Lana Del Rey was sober by the age of 18 and spent time with her aunt and uncle on Long Island, where she learned to play the guitar. She went on to study philosophy at Fordham University in the Bronx, but soon focused on her music instead. At age 22, she went on tour with Courtney Love. She was also the inspiration for the luxury handbag brand Mulberry.

Her lyrics often hint at darker themes than most pop music. Her “Rich Girl” album art, for instance, eschews 1960s glamor. Instead, the artist wears a white t-shirt and jeans, a casual outfit for a woman in her twenties. The photo also depicts Lana exiting a luxury car, staring directly into the camera. In other words, the album’s art mirrors the persona she’s created. She’s not an ordinary pop star, and she’s clearly an artist who can keep people coming back for more.

Lana Del Rey’s rise speaks volumes about the culture’s obsession with authenticity. The rise of Lana Del Rey is a product of a technological revolution. The internet has made the process of becoming famous exponentially faster. This is why, even before her debut album, her popularity has soared.

Sting’s “Money”

The song “Money” has earned Sting over $300 million since its release, making it one of the highest selling songs of all time. While this amount isn’t nearly as much as the $500 million earned by Springsteen and Dylan, it is still a boatload of cash. For a rock star, $300 million is enough to do just about anything. He could retire, write another hit musical, collaborate with Shaggy, or whatever his heart desires.

Sting, one of the richest musicians in Britain, has also admitted that he doesn’t plan to leave his children a trust fund full of money. Instead, he plans to teach his children to work hard like he did. The singer, who was born in Wallsend, North Tyneside, has six children between two previous marriages, as well as four from his current relationship.

The song was a big hit in 1983, spending eight weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. It has been played tens of millions of times on the radio, and Billboard has ranked it as one of the top 100 songs of all time. The recording session in Montserrat studio was full of tension.

The money Sting used to fund his lavish lifestyles was allegedly stolen by a business partner. Sting’s business partner, Keith Moore, had allegedly invested nearly a million dollars in his accounts, based on his trust in him. Sting has said that the tip he got about the alleged fraud alerted him to a possible scam.

Pet Shop Boys’ “Opportunities”

The song “Opportunities” by Pet Shop Boys is a sharp take on the obsession with money. The song was released as a single in 1985 and reached the top ten of the US Billboard Hot 100. Its lyrics are as pertinent as ever. The lyrics are about the power of money, and how it can either make or break us.

The song’s lyrics are often interpreted as satirical criticism of the mercenary attitudes of pop stars. However, the lyrics are also a critique of materialism and the Thatcherite/Reaganite era. Despite the band’s socialist leanings, the song’s lyrics have not been well received by American audiences.

The song was originally written for Kylie Minogue. The song is based on an unreleased remix of “Go West.” The lyrics were written by Chris, but Minogue and her record company rejected the song. The song was subsequently produced by Farley and Heller.

Pet Shop Boys’ “Opportunites” reached number four on the U.S. Dance/Club Play chart in 2003. In Joel Whitburn’s book Billboard’s Hot Dance/Disco 1974-2003, the band ranked fourth behind Michael Jackson, Madonna, and Donna Summer. There are numerous quotes about the band, which can be found on Wikiquote.

The band’s breakup rumors have recurred over the years, particularly after the release of their Discography. They were first spread by a Belgian radio DJ, and the rumor went wild for a few weeks in mid-nineties. The band later denied the rumors. In the meantime, the band had failed to plant any hints in their music or videos.

Steve Miller Band’s “Take the Money and Run”

“Take the Money and Run” is a 1976 hit by the Steve Miller Band. It’s about a pair of young bandits and the police officer who is trying to catch them. This song was one of many big hits for the band during the 1970s and was released on the band’s album Fly Like an Eagle. It peaked at number eleven on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in July 1976 and also charted well in Australia.

“Rock ‘N Me” was written by Miller as a road trip song. His parents took him on long car trips when he was a kid. The road trip anthems were made even more exciting thanks to the invention of FM radio, which allowed for clearer signals and stereo sound. Many of these road songs mention various locations and name them in the lyrics. “Rock ‘N Me” includes mentions of El Paso, Phoenix, Atlanta, and more.
