Help please!

I know lots of you are more music literate than me and I'm looking for songs about shopping for a piece I'm writing. I can only think of Hey Big Spender, and The Clash, Lost in the Supermarket, and at a pinch, Pulp, Ordinary People but there must be more.
Many more if you think how much time we spend shopping!

And my writing prompt for today is ... He'd never let me take his photograph.

Tom Lehrer's A Christmas Carol is essentially all about the merchandising of Christmas e.g:
Hark the Herald Tribune sings
Advertising wondrous things
God rest ye merry merchants
May you make the Yuletide pay
Angels we have heard on high
Tell us to go out and buy
