The Beatles -- ‘Money Thats What I Want’

Money (That’s What I Want) (2.47)

John Lennon: Lead vocal, rhythm guitar; Paul McCartney: Backing vocal, bass guitar; George Harrison: Backing vocal, lead guitar; Ringo Starr: Drums; Piano: George Martin

This legendary song was originally released on the Anna label – the early precursor of Motown. It was written by Berry Gordy and refers to the money worries that he was having setting up Motown. It soon became a staple of The Beatles’ Hamburg set, and they performed at their Decca audition too.

The mono and stereo versions are slightly different because the stereo version has some extra guitar at the start, and there’s some hand-clapping in the intro which can’t be heard in the mono version.
