In addition to love, pop icons and songwriters have dealt with few things so intensively as money. Be it the wish for abundant wealth or the fear of impending poverty -»Get Rich or Die Tryin« - countless songs have been written about it. Our behaviour towards money is just as irrational as being in love and it goes without saying that some ways of obtaining money are not always within the bounds of the law. What value it occupies in our lives is sometimes hard to quantify. We are players and gamblers, greedy and unreasonable but what does really matter? And how much should it matter? The Studiojahr Schauspiel sings about the turmoil of credit and debt, about a system in which trust and mistrust play a bigger role than some economists would like to admit.
