Hardiman the Fiddler Songs about money ($$$$$$$$$$) (106* d) RE: Songs about $$$$$$$$$$ 01 Aug 00


I personally like, "Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out," as was mentioned above, but my second favorite has not yet been mentioned. It is usually played every April 15th "The Taxman" as done by the Beatles.

My third current favorite about money is "Manage the Miser." "Manage the Miser" is found in English, Welsh, Scottish and Irish Fiddle Tunes by Robin Williamson (Oak Publications) A lugubrious tune from Playford, it captures exactly how I feel when I pay the bills each month.

There's a great quote from "The Portrait of Usury," by Thomas Lodge: "The chiefest ornament of his face is that his nose sticks in the midst like an ornament in terrace work, here and there embellished and decked with verucae for want of purging with agaric. His mouth is always mumbling as if he were at his matins, and his beard is bristled like a sow that had the lousy, and over his throat there hangs a bunch of skin like a money bag.

Well said, Thomas Lodge!
