Money Money Money Money When you listen to a C. D. or a song on the radio, do you actually listen to it? If you do you would probably have to agree that each song has a different and unique meaning. Money is one common topic most songs are about.
Their either about the good, bad, or the lifestyles of people with or with out money. Different music artists have their own idea of what money can do to you and some even think money is the root of all evil. In the song "Money" (Pink Floyd) they mention " Money, so they say is the root of all evil today." Money the root of all evil? Many people agree with this, whether your in debt or you have more money than you can count, its always causing problems. Certain problems lead to wanting more money, putting it first in your life.
It has been said that once a person gets a taste for money, you want more, and more, and more. Personality changes after lust sets in. "We " ve learned that money matters most, so we keep our cards held close, here at the top of the world," (Thrice). Top of the world? Having lots of money doesn't make you better than anyone else. So I guess money is really somewhat evil.
Or it can be within the hands of wrong people. If asked if they had a choice between saving someone's life or having lots of money, a wrong- doer would choose having lots of money. Now, throughout the song Money For Nothing (Dire Straits) rude comments are expressed toward those whom have oodles of money. So, just because you have lots of cash doesn't mean your going to have lots of friends.
Because of the massive amount of stereo-types, most people criticize the life styles of the rich and famous. Some people spend their whole lives wanting to be someone their not, this can result in being criticized like the rich and famous. The song Life Style's of the Rich and Famous describes the reasons most celebrities have bad reputations. "Talking about how hard life can be," no matter how much some people have, it still isn't good enough. People that have more limited lives are happy for what they have and appreciate things as simple as their own life. Money causes you to forget about the simple pleasures of living, and those you love.
You can buy diamond rings, but you can't buy love. That's exactly what The Beatles were thinking when they wrote the song Can't Buy Me Love. And its true, no matter what you do or how much money you spend you can never make a person truly love you. If you don't believe me take it from the Beatles, " For money cant buy me love." If you think of some conflicts going on in this century, its easy to see that most of them are money related.
Most of these conflicts could have been prevented by decisions being made properly. Decisions made with out great thought lead to problems. And when problems are related to money the effects are of course going to be bad. After all, money is the root of all evil.
