April 18th is a day Americans dread: Tax Day. Unless you’re an accountant or a tax preparer about to get a big paycheck — and even then, you might be stressed from weeks of handling other people’s taxes.
We hope you stocked up on coffee and comfort food and remembered to organize the endless pile of e-data and bits of paper you’ll need in order to hang on to as much of your dear cash as you can. In sympathy, we’ve prepared a list of thumping tunes to keep you going as you make your way through all those damn forms tonight.
Here are some tracks, including The Beatles’ “Taxman” (arguably most famous song about taxes), to get you through your annual fun with the Infernal Revenue Service. And — if you need a few about being annoyed at the government or general money woes — they’re in here too.
