DJ Mixanthrope With Another Mix For the Day Late and Dollar Short

To paraphrase the Wu Tang Clan, cash rules everything around us, and the end of its reign feels nowhere in sight. While heartbreak and misery remain far more popular musical topics overall, there is a growing canon of songs about wanting, needing, not having and getting money.
