Movie Musicals Decades Still Singing about Money

80 years : 3 Dance numbers, Songs about money in the movies

Gold Diggers of 1933

We're In the Money 


We're in the money,
We're in the money;
We've got a lot of what it takes to get along!
We're in the money,
The sky is sunny;
Old Man Depression, you are through,
You done us wrong!

Film features Joan Blondell, Aline MacMahon, Ruby Keeler, Ginger Rogers

Cabaret 1972


A mark, a yen, a buck, or a pound
A buck or a pound
A buck or a pound
Is all that makes the world go around,
That clinking clanking sound
Can make the world go 'round.

Liza Minnelli, Joel Grey

Mamma Mia 2008
Money, Money, Money

In my dreams I have a plan
If I got me a wealthy man
I wouldn't have to work at all, I'd fool around and have a ball...
Money, money, money
Must be funny
In the rich man's world

Meryl Streep, Christine Baranski, Amanda Seyfried
