Mustacian/unmustacian song?
« on: April 16, 2014, 03:31:01 PM »
I was cycling home last night and an old classic song came into my head and i realised that it could be considered very mustacian or unmustacian depending on your perspective.

Its about a street cleaner who saves up his money to buy a boat. I think its mustacian though as from the lyrics it seems he has achieved FI. He even packs his own lunch!

Do you agree this song is mustacian?

I'm reviving an old thread because it is exactly what I was thinking about: Songs w/ mustachian lyrics!
Here are a few that come to my mind:

*King of the Road -- Roger Miller
*Cheap Thrills -- Sia
*Can't buy me love -- The Beatles

So, do you have any to add to my list?

"Money" by That Poppy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fS9f6_i6v3Q

Very pro (if taken as satire), and catchy if you like pop (I'm a poptimist myself)

I'm a big fan of cake's song "Rock and Roll Lifestyle"
Two verses for your consideration:

Well your CD collection looks shiny and costly.
How much did you pay for your bad Moto Guzzi?
And how much did you spend on your black leather jacket?
Is it you or your parents in this income tax bracket?

Now tickets to concerts and drinking at clubs
Sometimes for music that you haven't even heard of.
And how much did you pay for your rock'n'roll t shirt
That proves you were there
That you heard of them first?

How do you afford your rock'n'roll lifestyle?

Sleep on the Floor - the Lumineers

And when we looked outside
Couldn't even see the sky
How do you pay the rent
Is it your parents
Or is hard work dear
Holding the atmosphere
I don't wanna live like that, yeah
