Selection Source Performer(s) Comments
The Money Song Eric Idle Sings Monty Python (2000) Eric Idle Recorded live on 7/4/1999 in Los Angeles
Money, Money Cabaret (OS 1972) Joel Grey, Liza Minnelli This is a song which does not appear in the original stage version of the show; one of many ways in which the film differs significantly from theatrical original (not all of them necessarily good).
The Money Song (Sitting Pretty) Cabaret (OC 1966) Joel Grey, Ensemble The Kit Kat Klub MC presides over a production number in which the chorus girls are all dressed as different types of currency.
Brother, Can You Spare a Dime? Brother, Can You Spare a Dime? (1976) Bing Crosby, Lennie Hayton and His Orchestra From Americana (1932) this E.Y. Harburg and Jay Gorney classic is unusual for its realistic portrayal of conditions in Depression America.
We're in the Money The Busby Berkeley Album (1994) Judy Blazer, London Sinfonietta and London Sinfonietta Chorus conducted by John McGlinn From Gold Diggers of 1933, this is more typical of the escapism of the period. This contemporary digital recording uses the original orchestrations from the film, so this is what it would have sounded like on the actual sound stage back then.
The Sound of Money I Can Get it For You Wholesale (OC 1962) Elliott Gould, Sheree North This tale of greed and ambition in New York's garment district is now chiefly remembered as the Broadway debut of Barbara Streisand.
