‘Tis the season. Tax season, that is. Last week, in honor of this most annoying season, I watched one of my favorite Roseanne episodes: “April Fool’s Day,” in which she and husband Dan rush against the clock to get their taxes filed on time.
And I giggled myself silly as I spotted my own actions and reactions on screen. Granted, my taxes are simple compared to their mountain of receipts and forms. Between my husband and I—we married last year, so this is the first year we get to do that tax combo break—we have two jobs between us and some interest incoming. And that’s it. Easy. Just the way I like it. (Granted, this reminds me, I really need to start doing some more retirement planning.)
So, here are five songs in honor of this season of taxes and thinking about bureaucracy.
1. Hard for the Money – Donna Summer
2. Badlands – Bruce Springsteen
3. Bad Romance: Women’s Suffrage – Soomo Publishing
4. It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue – Bob Dylan
5. Born to Run – Bruce Springsteen
