Have seen lots of threads on songs to listen to pump you up when you need to crank it in excel for a few hours, but where are the threads on songs that inspire you to go out there and make that money?

Post the artist & title if you're going to post a video (sometimes cant see videos on mobile)

Just listened and checked out the lyrics:

"I've been savin' money since a motherfucker thirteen
I wear the same pair of jeans everyday
Free sandwiches, homie, two stamps away
Book flight December but I leave in May
Drugs are generic but still work the same
I get logins for Netflix from my cousin Greg
Thanks Greg!"

haha, this is pretty much the guidebook to staying wealthy....next thing you know rappers gon be singing about 401ks and Roth IRAs

In The Flesh:

The Heat Is On - Glenn Frey (Beverly Hills Cop soundtrack). Seriously.

Just listened. This makes you think about money, srsly?

You know you've been working too hard when you stop dreaming about bottles of champagne and hordes of naked women, and start dreaming about conditional formatting and circular references.

Great 80s music for wall street. One highly underrated hit that a friend recently forwarded to me is "Big Time" by Peter Gabriel (

). This is an ideal song to walk into a jr-level finance job to.

Yeah, I'm a huge 80s fan in general. I was recently turned on to Kenny Loggins - Playing with the Boys (Top Gun volleyball montage)

Nov 16, 2015

Yes, that Peter Gabriel song is killer.

Sussudio - on a semi-related note.

"Dont just stare at it Sabrina.... Eat it."

Nov 11, 2015

In the Phil Collins vein "In The Air Tonight." Next time you go to Miami rent a performance car, preferably a convertible, and at night blare that song as you're flying down 95 or over the Causeway going 100 (Miami cops hardly ever pull you over, trust me I lived there for 3 years). You get to feel like Crockett & Tubbs instantly. You'll either get motivated to do well in a legit field or become a 1984 coke importer. Regardless the drums rock. I used to go out of my way from my Brickell office and go down 95 to the Grove to fly down 95 for 4 miles late at night just for that song.

I'm surprised at all of the rap without noting Biggie's Hypnotize. Or going old school rock with Metallica or GnR. A little Master or Welcome to the Jungle always lights a fire under my ass.

But maybe I'm just old.

When I was in grad school I had an old Alison Krauss CD stuck in my car's CD player. (You kids know what a CD player is...right?). The day of one of my most difficult exams I pulled into the parking spot in the deck at the same instant that song finished.

I aced the test and took that as a sign. So now before any big presentation, sales meeting, or anything of significance I always listen to "Tiny Broken Heart".
