We want your soul !!

"We Want Your Soul" is a 2003 breakbeat song by British DJ and producer Adam Freeland; the song made the Top 40 charts in several countries, and resulted in an award-winning music video [1]. It is the first song to which Freeland wrote the lyrics [2], he describes it as being "about the destructive side of consumer culture", and about how commercialism is inescapable. Rather than being sung, the song's verses are spoken by a speech synthesizer; the song also features a sample of Bill HicksThe Target Corporation sought to license We Want Your Soul for use in an advertising campaign [3], which Freeland refused.

For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. 1 Tim 6:7

"The Power of Enough" is a book that expands on this idea
