With our Spellmaker Family's Annual Sobo Prosperity Ritual approaching, naturally our favorite little Sobo song pops in our heads :-) What other songs might we play during this ritual? Remember, Sobo is considered one of the lwa of the sky and is said to control lightning, thunder, and rain. Bade is considered to control the wind. Together, they have control of the elements of nature. Due to their elemental powers, they are often called upon to help us feel secure! Think of terms such as "raining money," "pennies from heaven," etc.
Here are a few to start us off.....
Money for Nothing- Dire Straights
Pay Me My Money Down- Springsteen
Then, one of my all time favorites, the Money Song by Monty Python :-)

The Money Song by Monty Python
I've got ninety thousand pounds in my pyjamas.
I've got forty thousand French francs in my fridge.
I've got lots of lovely lire.
Now the Deutschmark's getting dearer,
And my dollar bills would buy the Brooklyn Bridge.
There is nothing quite as wonderful as money.
There is nothing quite as beautiful as cash.
Some people say it's folly,
But I'd rather have the lolly.
With money you can make a splash.
There is nothing like a newly minted pound.
Money, money, money, money.
Everyone must hanker
For the butchness of a banker.
It's accountancy that makes the world go 'round.
You can keep your Marxist ways,
For it's only just a phase,
For it's money, money, money makes the world go 'round.
...Money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, moneeeeey!
