Songs That Remind You Of FIRE
« on: June 05, 2018, 10:24:48 AM »
What songs make you think of FIRE/Mustachianism?

It could be either songs that are explicitly about early retirement or saving money, or it could just be songs where that one part from the lyrics makes you think of it even though it was never intended to be about FIRE. But the point is, it shouldn't be just any random song that you like - it has to be a song that would fit on a playlist made with the theme of FIRE.

I'll start.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FzyhlXMmsh4 The Seven Days Of The Week (I Never Go To Work) - They Might Be Giants

That one's pretty obvious in how it's related to FIRE...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPfzOcqQQ3w Early Retirement - Handguns

So's that one.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X31Z2N513L0 The Way I Loved You - Taylor Swift

I sometimes sing that and pretend that the comfortable but boring relationship is a conventional job and the wild rollercoaster relationship that she misses is either self-employment or some adventurous type of unemployment.

"Cause I need freedom now and I need to know how to live my life as it's meant to be!"

Oops, I suppose that's what I get for never checking the Reader Recommendations sub-forum...

For most of my life I've been a daydreamer.

Being FIREd means I have plenty of time for daydreaming.

“Daydream” by the Lovin' Spoonful always reminds me of what it's like to be FIREd.


"Daydream" Lyrics


 
What a day for a day dream
 What a day for a day dreamin' boy
 And I'm lost in a day dream
 Dreamin' 'bout my bundle of joy

 And even if time ain't really on my side
It's one of those days for taking a walk outside
 I'm blowing the day to take a walk in the sun

 And fall on my face in somebody's new mowed lawn

I've been havin' a sweet dream
 I've been dreamin' since I woke up today

 It's starring me in my sweet dream
 Cause she's the one that makes me feel this way

 And even if time is passin' me by a lot
 I couldn't care less about the dues you say I got

 Tomorrow I'll pay the dues for dropping my load
 A pie in the face for being a sleepy bull toad

And you can be sure that if you're feelin right
 A day dream will last a long time into the night

 Tomorrow at breakfast you may prick up your ears
 Or you may be dreamin' for a thousand years

What a day for a day dream
 Custom made for a day dreamin' boy
 And now I'm lost in a day dream

 Dreamin' about my bundle of joy

Don't ask me why but as soon as I saw the sunject line it made me think of this song. Makes really no sense other than he used the word save alot and i imagine him sitting there singing in his flannel shirt and guitar kinda with a frugal look about him. Loved his music and my DW does as well.

Time in a Bottle
Jim Croce

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I'd like to do
Is to save every day
'Til eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you
If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I'd save every day like a treasure and then,
Again, I would spend them with you
But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I've looked around enough to know
That you're the one I want to go
Through time with
If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty
Except for the memory
Of how they were answered by you
But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I've looked around enough to know
That you're the one I want to go
Through time with
