Gone are the driving guitars and pounding drums of the original “What’s The Colour Of Money?”, replaced by a sweeping orchestral arrangement. The strings swell with each accusation, mirroring the vocalist’s rising anger as they question the corrupting influence of money.

Lyrically, the song remains a potent critique of materialism. Lines like “Passion faked and sold to the anthem green and gold” and “What was a useful tool / Has taken our control?” highlight the insidious nature of money’s hold on society.

The repeated refrain, “What’s the colour of money? Don’t tell me that you think it’s green / Me I know it’s red!” takes center stage. The orchestral build-up intensifies the emotional weight of the question, leaving the listener to ponder the true cost of chasing wealth.

While the original “What’s The Colour Of Money?” was a head-banging anthem, the orchestral version provides a fresh perspective. It’s a powerful reminder of the song’s enduring message, delivered with a new layer of emotional depth.

Orchestral Eighties promises a unique journey for fans of 80s music. With new releases every week, including bonus tracks alongside the album’s core collection, audiences can rediscover old favorites in a whole new light. Get ready to experience the classics like never before!

Full Lyrics for “What’s The Colour Of Money?” by Hollywood Beyond

Dull my senses
steal my pride
principles denied

Passion faked and sold to the anthem green and gold.
Colour of the virtue by working like a slave

More precious than life? itself

what”s the colour tempting fate?

What”s the colour of money
what”s the colour of money?
Don”t tell me that you think it”s green
me I know it”s red.
What”s the colour of money
what”s the colour of money?
Don”t tell me that you think it”s green
me I know it”s red!

Dull my senses
steal my pride
principles denied

Passion faked and sold to the anthem green and gold.
What was a useful tool
has taken our control?
It takes away your hearts and wraps it up around your soul.
What”s the colour of money
what”s the colour of money? . . .

What”s the colour of money
what”s the colour of money?
I know it”s red
I know it”s red!

Dull my senses
steal my pride
principles denied

Passion faked and sold to the anthem green and gold.
Colour of th.e virtue by working like a slave

More precious than life itself
familiarity breeds contempt.
What”s the colour of money
what”s the colour of money? . . .
What”s the colour of money? X14
