Material Girl
by Brian ORoark `

Madonna's signature song put her on the map in 1984.  Materialism is sometimes decried as a significant problem with capitalism, but if people don't buy things the economy would grind to a halt.  Does having more stuff make you happier?  That's debatable, the economic question of utility attempts to address that question.
