Credit Crunch Music

Recommended Posts

Mods, please move as you see fit, but I thought I should post this new Iron Maiden song and its lyrics as I believe they "get it" .

El Dorado, speaks for itself.

I actually like some of the comments which show people realise we are bankrupt thanks to all the easy credit

Gotta tell you a story

On a cold winters night

You'll be sailin for glory

Before you know what is right

So come over here now

I got a vision for you

It's my personal snake oil

It's just something I do

I'm the jester with no tears

And I'm playing on your fears

I'm a trickster smiling underneath this mask of love and death

The eternal lie I've told

About the pyramids of gold

I've got you hooked at every turn your money's left to burn

You'll be wanting a contract

You'll be waiting a while

I'd like to give you my contact

But that isn't my style

Well you only get one chance

And it's too good to miss

If I gave a lot to ya

Then I wouldn't exist

Greed, lust and angry pride

It's the same old, same old ride

The smoke and mirrors visions that you see are just like me

I'm a banker's face

With just a letter out of place

I know someone just like you knows someone just like me

El Dorado come and play

El Dorado step this way

Take a ticket for the ride

El Dorado streets of gold

See those over sold

You've got one last chance to try

So gone is the glory

And gone is the gold

Well if you need a story

I've come it has to be told

Well you can say I'm a devil

And I wouldn't say no

But out here on the dark side

Hey, on with the show

So is told

Big and bad and twice as bold

This ship of fools is sinking as the cracks begin to grow

There is no easy way

For an honest man today

Which is something you should think of as my life boat sails away

El Dorado come and play

El Dorado step this way

Take a ticket for the ride

El Dorado streets of gold

See those over sold

You've got one last chance to try

They certainly do get it.

At the last Maiden gig that I saw Bruce Dickinson introduced this song with a strong criticism of (w)bankers and the culture of greed that has got us to where we are today.

Bruce for PM!

I recently discovered the band 'Montrose' who were around in the early seventies:

Their song 'Paper Money' seems very credit crunch worthy:

I play the game of a rich boy,

I buy everything I can.

My bankroll is a foot thick,

I'm a wealthy man.

A million dollar reserve note is right there in my hand

And I can't stand to think...it's all that I've got.

Take away all my silver

Take away all my gold

And hand me a stack of paper

Paper money don't hold. Paper money don't hold.

Well, you act as though you don't remember

The way it all used to be.

Now one man, he locks up the money

Another man holds the key.

My car cost me fifteen grand,

Some say I got a deal.

Melt it down, I've got a thousand pounds of junk

And ten dollars worth of steel.
