Songs About Money: “Money Music”

Tom Levinson Life with Money

If you were making a mixtape or playlist of your favorite songs about money, what would make the cut?

Visiting with a few of our clients this week offered a nice opportunity to turn on the radio. And with the radio on, we could revisit that ongoing question.

On one of our recent Park Piedmont weekly team Zooms, we spent the better part of an hour discussing songs about money, getting input from our whole team. Our initial songlist runs the gamut from standards of the American Songbook to Hip-Hop, Disco to Rock, Country to Folk.

Take a look at our list and then let us know: what are we missing? What songs would you add to our “Money Music” playlist?
