10 Songs About Debt That Aren’t by The Beatles, ABBA or Pink Floyd
Please don’t send me an angry email about hating Paul McCartney or not respecting my elders.
I’m the daughter of a classic rock-addicted dad, a 10-year-employee of a secondhand CD store, and a drummer whose early repertoire included a lot of Beatles songs.
But I can’t take one more list of money-related songs that have “Money (That’s What I Want)” and Pink Floyd’s “Money” at the top. We can do better than this.
One thing music from the 1960s, '70s, and '80s has in common with music from this decade is that people are still in debt. So that has to mean there are newer songs out there with the same sentiments but some newer edge, right?
Yes. It does. Here are 10 songs about debt by artists we don’t hear on the oldies station every five minutes. And sure, some are throwbacks, like Elvis Costello – but I’d still argue that they’re played way less than anything by the Fab Four. You might even find something new you like.
