1st Mariner Bank’s Top Songs about Money

by Erica Barry 3. December 2013

Cash, dinero, Benjamins, green, dough, moolah, George Washington’s…we all have our own preference when talking about the all mighty dollar. After all, it’s what makes the world go round, right? That may not be entirely true, but the topic of money has certainly helped deepen the pockets of several popular music artists over the years and not to mention, given the world something to tap their feet to (or dance around the room like a fool…to each his own, right?) I think it is safe to say that music and money have had a long, interesting, yet sometimes complicated, rollercoaster ride of a relationship. And lucky for us, it’s quite entertaining.

That being said, we thought it would be fun to go around and ask some members of the 1st Mariner family to name their favorite song about money. Actually, we thought it would be REALLY fun to ask them to let us video them singing their favorite song about money but somehow that didn’t go over so well. Baby steps people, baby steps. Foreshadowing for Songs about Money Part II? I think so…

For now, here's what they had to say:

"Mo Money Mo Problems" - The Notorious B.I.G. ft. Mase & Puff Daddy (1997)
