I recently got an email from a bluegrass band here in Chicago called Tangleweed: “much of the work we perform deals with rural and urban poverty and characters who are “gett’in by when your gett’ins gone.” They pointed me to their song “Hard Times” which you can find here.
And it got me thinking–what songs belong on a great recession-themed mix tape?
Living on a Prayer, Bon Jovi (suggested by Susie An)
Feel the Pain, Dinosaur Jr. (suggested by Jason Marck)
Shining My Shoes, Daniel Knox (suggested by Andrew Gill)
Coat of Many Colors, Dolly Parton (my pick)
I’ll keep adding to this list & would love to know what you think–what songs would you put on a recession mix-tape?
