    Background Music

    One element I have loved about the show is the various music.

    Of course, the "money money money,,,,MONEY" them song by the 70s group The O'Jays is great! It really gets ya going and prepares you for the show. (And I know some people are dancin' to that music...I can't be the only one.)

    But I also like:

    The ominous, ultra-dramatic music as they file into the board room and the music gets more intense as whoever is waiting in the lobby goes back in.

    Then, there is the almost tinkling sounding music as the person who is fired exits the building and gets into the taxi.

    I also love the thumping music as the board room survivor(s) wheel their luggage back up to the suite.

    I sing along with the "Money money..." song in the beginning. It's true-it does get you revved up. It also makes me want to go out and buy a Porsche and drive it around town! Too bad I can't.

    There was the Wagnerian-like music as The Donald stepped off the 90th floor elevator at the beginning of the last episode. Anyone know what it was?

    Theme Song

    The name of the song is "For The Love of Money" by The O'Jays (in 1974)

    Money money money money, money
    Some people got to have it
    Some people really need it
    Listen to me y'all, do things, do things, do bad things with it
    You wanna do things, do things, do things, good things with it
    Talk about cash money, money
    Talk about cash money- dollar bills, yall

    For the love of money
    People will steal from their mother
    For the love of money
    People will rob their own brother
    For the love of money
    People can't even walk the street
    Because they never know who in the world they're gonna beat
    For that lean, mean, mean green
    Almighty dollar, money

    For the love of money
    People will lie, Lord, they will cheat
    For the love of money
    People don't care who they hurt or beat
    For the love of money
    A woman will sell her precious body
    For a small piece of paper it carries a lot of weight
    Call it lean, mean, mean green

    Almighty dollar

    I know money is the root of all evil
    Do funny things to some people
    Give me a nickel, brother can you spare a dime
    Money can drive some people out of their minds

    Got to have it, I really need it
    How many things have I heard you say
    Some people really need it
    How many things have I heard you say
    Got to have it, I really need it
    How many things have I heard you say
    Lay down, lay down, a woman will lay down
    For the love of money
    All for the love of money
    Don't let, don't let, don't let money rule you
    For the love of money
    Money can change people sometimes
    Don't let, don't let, don't let money fool you
    Money can fool people sometimes
    People! Don't let money, dont let money change you,
    it will keep on changing, changing up your mind.

    I think the original O'Jays song had been jazzed up for TV. Someone may be able to confirm or dispute this.
