When Barrett Strong sang Money - that's what I want! the R&B singer from Mississippi touched a raw nerve in the public consciousness. We can all be high-minded moralists and the idea of singing the praises of filthy lucre can seem distasteful even outrageous. Yet there was cause to smile and give way to popular sentiment when Barrett spoke so shamelessly of his basic needs. Let s face it; money need not be the root of all evil. It can mean the price of a cup of coffee and even a roof over ones head. This treasure house of songs presented by a richly endowed depository of artists all dealing with the issues raised by the need to work for your money. You can bet your bottom dollar that most of us can relate to that!
