Tune into Tax Day: 10 money songs to get you through it

(RNN) – When Tax Day comes around, it’s all about the money.

Whether you’re getting some back or chipping more in to keep the federal government running, these 10 songs will get your toes tapping and perhaps make you think a bit.

“She Works Hard for the Money” – Donna Summer

The Grammy winner’s ode to the working girl.

Key lyric: “She works hard for the money. So hard for it, honey. She works hard for the money. So, you better treat her right.”

“Workin’ for a Livin’” – Huey Lewis and the News

Equal time: A blue-collar anthem for the working man.

Key lyric: “I'm taking what they're giving, 'cause I'm workin' for a livin'.”

“If You’ve Got the Money, I’ve Got the Time” – Willie Nelson

Nothing political here, it’s just a song about having a good time. But the country star did have a $16.7 million tax lien slapped on his property by the IRS after he invested in an illegal tax shelter.

Key lyric: “If you've got the money, I've got the time. We'll go honky tonkin' and we'll have a time.”

“Mo Money Mo Problems” – The Notorious B.I.G.

The title says it all.

Key lyric: “I don't know what they want from me. It's like the more money we come across. The more problems we see.”

“Taxman” – The Beatles

A tax protest song from the Fab Four.

Key lyric: “Let me tell you how it will be. There's one for you, 19 for me. 'Cause I'm the taxman”

“Money, Money, Money” – ABBA

A bouncy, wannabe-gold digger’s tune.

Key lyric: “Money, money, money. Must be funny. In the rich man's world.”

“Got Money” – Lil Wayne and T-Pain

Weezy is living large and wants everyone to know.

Key lyric: “Got money. And you know it. Take it out your pocket and show it.”

“Money for Nothing” – Dire Straits

Join us on trip back to the early days of MTV.

Key lyric: “Money for nothin' and chicks for free.”

“For The Love of Money” – The O’Jays

This funk/soul classic from 1974 dishes out some biblical insight: “For the love of money is the root of all evil.”

Key lyric: “For the love of money. A woman will sell her precious body. For a small piece of paper, it carries a lot of weight.”

“Money” – Pink Floyd

This song is about greed, pure and simple.

Key lyric: “Money, it's a crime. Share it fairly but don't take a slice of my pie.”
