"Money Won't Change You" is a song recorded by James Brown in 1966. It was released in edited form as a two-part single which charted #11 R&B and #53 Pop.[1]

It was his third message song, after "Don't Be a Drop-Out," and "Get it Together", songs recorded in the wake of the Civil Rights Movement.[2]

Both parts of the single were included on Brown's 1967 album Sings Raw Soul.

An unedited version of the song appeared for the first time in the 1991 box set Star Time.[3][4]

Brown wrote the first of his message songs, “Don’t Be a Dropout,” and followed it with “Get it Together,” and “Money Won’t Change You” within months. The rugged grooves and piercing screams of Brown became a trademark of the urgency and prideful presentation of the black man in full awakening.

Some tracks — "Money Won't Change You" and "Papa's Got a Brand-New Bag" — have been restored to their original length after being pruned for radio play, and it's wonderful to hear the band stretching out, flexing its muscles in service of the groove, the almighty rhythm.
