Money is the first track from Johnny Marr’s upcoming second solo album Playland, the album’s main themes are described by its author as ‘the atmosphere of the city’, and ‘the preoccupations of the people who live in it.’

The bouncy riffs and vocals disguise the true intention of the song which is the discussion of cold hard cash. The video is a give-away while Marr and his boys play to an empty pub, visit a casino, a pawn shop and an amusement arcade, presumably so old Johnny can show us how easy it is to piss your cash up the wall.

The track showcases Marr’s classic pop rock guitaring, and the song itself with its meaning is somewhat reminiscent of The Smiths. Without the brash cynicism… (okay so not like The Smiths then) but with its sea-side, fruit machine, working men’s club vibe we’re waiting with bated breath to hear something new from Marr…
