Subject: BS: Songs For The Current Mess

Now, I don't know if this should be above or below the salt, so I'll let a clone move it if it's thought best to do so.

I woke this mornin' (how's THAT for a song-related start?) thinking about the current financial mess and the song "Those Were The Days" popped into my head. Thinking more on it, the song "The Cat Came Back" showed up.

Anyone else have any others?

Music for the meltdown: German composer makes melodies from stock charts
    Posted: February 09, 2009, 9:28 AM by Sarah Efron
   
    German composer Johannes Kreidler has used the data in stock charts - Lehman Brothers, Bank of America, General Motors, etc. - and converted it to song using Microsoft's music composition software Songsmith. The muzak-like results are hideous, but I give Kreidler full points for creativity. Check it out. http://network.nationalpost.com/np/blogs/fpmagazinedaily/default.aspx

Peggy Lee:
You had plenty money 1922
You let other women make a fool of you
Why don't you do right
Like some other men do...

"GET OUTTA HERE & GET ME SOME MONEY TOO."

Subject: Lyr Add: BREAK EVEN
From: bankley
Date: 10 Feb 09 - 11:58 AM

glad you asked.. Rap... I have a few minutes so...something from the new CD, it has a happy melody to it, ironic, almost Buffet-like (Jimmy not Warren)

                         'Break Even'

            Don't bail out that Ship of State
            Her sails are in tatters, scattered in the wake
            She's pulled too hard a-starboard
            Harbour's swallowed by the mist
            If she goes down or runs aground
            Who'll be around to hear the sound
            Will tomorrow ever remember this ?

            When those lucky stars cease to shine,
            Compass is broken and you're travelling blind
            And you find out this is not what it's cracked up to be
            If it's all about who ends up with more
            Who leaves their tracks upon the shore
            Don't count me out, this old road hasn't seen the last of me

            Rummage through the wreckage of damaged dreams
            and the triage of broken exposure
            While scavengers prowl a bandaged scene
            Behind badges of foreclosure

            We might break even, we might not even break at all
            Maybe just bend a bit, whatever fits
            Somewhere before the fall

            Don't those 'suits' have shiney asses with 'kick me' tatoos
            Life line's tied to an anvil where they hammered out the blues
            On another trail of tears so far from home
            Where Wall Street and Main do collide
            Down-on-luck gamblers beg for another ride
            Leaving children to witness, witless bubbles bursting in the foam

            So rifle through the luggage of raffled hope
            At the ICU of some poverty ward
            While the bottom drops out from under scaffold rope
            To leave you hanging like a sword

            We might break even, we might not even break at all
            Maybe just bend a bit, whatever fits
            Somewhere before the fall

The more things change the more they remain the same (with a few minor changes)
