Money (That's What I Want)

compositie van Berry Gordy

Money (That's What I Want) is een Amerikaans popnummer uit 1960, geschreven door Berry Gordy, Janie Bradford en Barrett Strong. Of die laatste echt heeft meegeschreven aan het lied is onduidelijk. Op opnamen van het lied wordt hij soms wel en soms niet als coauteur vermeld. In elk geval was hij de eerste die het nummer op de plaat zette, voor het label Tamla, het latere Motown. Het was de eerste Motown-hit, met een 23e plaats in de Billboard Hot 100 en een 2e plaats in de Hot R&B Sides, toen de naam voor de Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, de hitparade voor rhythm-and-blues-nummers en verwante muziek.[1]

Het nummer is daarna vele malen gecoverd, onder andere door The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Doors, The Kingsmen en The Flying Lizards. Het tijdschrift Rolling Stone zette het nummer op 288 in zijn lijst The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

De ik-figuur in het liedje is best tevreden met zijn relatie, maar wat hij het hardste nodig heeft is geld, want met liefde kan hij zijn rekeningen niet betalen.
