In light of the credit crunch that is all over the news these days, I decided to compile a recession play list. Filled with ballads and electro-charged beats, it will keep you on that emotional roller coaster ride…but feeling exhilarated at the end of course. Credit crunch? I say crank up the music!
Hard to Live in the City – Albert Hammond Jr.
Indeed it is, Wall Street in New York to Canary Wharf in London, the tumbleweeds are rolling and the clouds are circling over head.
Golddigger – Kanye West
The recession may see more golddiggers out there; not everyone will be willing to sacrifice their Christian Louboutin heels and Chanel suits for the Gap!
Ten Dollar – M.I.A.
“What can I get for Ten Dollar? Anything you want!”
Hometown Glory – Adele
Such grace, such poise, such vocals! I love this ballad, it’s moving and motivational. Plus Adele mentions one unwavering truth, during hard times the people always stand united.
Opportunities – Pet Shop Boys
In the face of challenge, one must always look for opportunity! In the words of the Pet Shop Boys, “lets make lots of money!”
The Irony of it All – The Streets
Who could phrase it any better than the satirical Streets?
Call on Me – Eric Prydz
All this talk about the credit crunch is making me want to do crunches.
Spice Up Your Life – Spice Girls
There’s nothing like a good dance party to take your mind off things. 90’s pop – what’s not to love?
