12 Great Songs About Money

While everyone’s talking about money, taxes, the national debt, and throwing around crazy numbers like Trillions and Billions…why not sing about it?  Every genre and style has songs about making money, paying bills and of course complaining about the tax man…and why not?  We pay 10% in Chicago ON TOP of our huge federal income taxes!  Anyway, singing is therapy and YouTube is free…so relax and while you’re figuring out what you are required to pay Uncle Sam and sing your heart out!
