"Money (That's What I Want)"

OK, more Fabdom: This Gordy/Bradford '59 composition was THE 1st hit for what was to become Motown - Barrett Strong's rendition peaked at #2 B&B and #23 Pop in '60. The Beatles recorded it in '63 in 7 takes for their 2nd album with John on lead vocals and subsequent piano overdubs by Sir George Martin. #288 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs Ever. Performed by John Belushi on "Animal House".

Yesterday's answer: "Day By Day". Love that song and it is, strictly speaking, from a "one hit wonder" since this was the only hit for the cast. My favorite song from Godspell is "By My Side".
