Give Me the Money! (stylized as Give Me The Money!) is a fan-made collection of demo versions of songs by Welsh singer-songwriter Marina and the Diamonds. It leaked on iCloud/Tumblr in May/July, 2012 by an unknown user. All songs are (possibly) recorded in 2006, except for one, "Perfect Stranger", which is a live recording of a cover of a song released in 2010.


The full album was written and recorded by Marina Diamandis in her room in low quality (except for "Perfect Stranger"). It has the same quality that can be heard on Mermaid vs. Sailor.

"Starlight" was reworked and recorded for her first studio album, The Family Jewels, but it didn't make the cut.


The artwork contains a photo (maybe taken the same day that she took her photos for the artwork from her first EP, Mermaid vs. Sailor) of Diamandis looking to the camera and smiling, with a sepia filter, with the title in blue and red next to her shoulder with three diamonds around of it and her pseudonym in red and blue too.

The artwork was probably made by the user of iCloud/Tumblr who leaked the album, who may have made it in Paint to recreate the design of Mermaid vs Sailor EP.
