"(How to Be A) Millionaire" is a song by English new wave and synth-pop band ABC. It was the first single taken from their third studio album, How to Be a ... Zillionaire!

The single peaked at a modest No. 49 on the UK Singles Chart, though it fared better in the US where it reached No. 20 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and No. 4 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart.

The CBS Orchestra played the song for Regis Philbin when he was a guest on the Late Show with David Letterman. Philbin was the former host of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire for the ABC television network.
