What to Play When You're Poor

No matter how bad the current financial situation gets, popular music offers something to ease your woes. Hope you haven't pawned that iPod just yet: the LA Times brings you the best in recession-tastic classics:

"Can't Buy Me Love" (Beatles): Single, former Lehman Bros workers will be spinning this one in heavy rotation.
"Fortunate Son" (Creedence Clearwater Revival): It could be worse—you could be broke and drafted...
"Atlantic City" (Bruce Springsteen): ...or hooking up with some unscrupulous characters in Jersey...
"The Israelites" (Desmond Dekker): ...or as bad off as an ancient Hebrew slave...
"Coal Miner's Daughter" (Loretta Lynn): ...or, well, you know.
"Career Opportunities" (The Clash): But the Brits have a point: having no job is better than having a crappy one...right?
