The weird thing about Barrett Strong's "Money" was some instruments (piano anyway) not making the chord changes, staying on the I part while the rest of the band changed.

A #1 hit, too, making me wonder if the subliminal tension symbolized the constant struggle for money in a very effective way:

almost forgot this one, an old fav..

Didn't have the money round to buy a Morry Thou
Been around and seen a lot to shake me anyhow
Begged and borrowed sometimes, I admit I even stole
The worse crime that I ever did was playing rock 'n roll.
But the money's no good
Just get a grip on yourself
But the money's no good
Just get a grip on yourself
