Money is the most sought-after search term on our blog. As a matter of fact, money has led to 7,166 hits on this blog. People like money. A lot. And, since He and I thought a lot about money this weekend as we evaluated how long it will be before we get to buy a house, I thought I’d make this little Tunes for the Week alllll about money.

1. The O’Jays – Money

2. Dire Straits – Money For Nothing

3. Lil Wayne – Money In My Pocket

4. Pink Floyd – Money

5. The Beatles – Money (That’s What I Want)

6. Birdman (Ft. Lil Wayne, Drake) – Money To Blow

7. Swizz Beatz – Money In The Bank

8. ABBA – Money Money Money

9. 50 Cent – I Get Money

10. The Flying Lizards – Money 

Turns out, a lot of money songs are rap songs. Surprised? Me neither.

Ah, high school. That time in my life that I remember with such merriment, and such happiness, even though I spent a lot of nights crying in my room and writing sad poetry in a yellow Mead notebook. I did a bit of reminiscing over the weekend, so here are some top songs from my high school days. Try to figure out which clique I was in! *Note: this is more from Grade 10 and 11, before I got a boyfriend and stopped being weird.

9 May

As you know, this weekend was our big Yard Sale Party. We had a great time, as you can read all about from yesterday’s post. As any good young hipster-yuppie-dink knows, the most important part of any garage sale is the music. So here’s some of the fine tunes we spent listening to Saturday morning from the comfort of our yard, and then Sunday cleaning to.

1. Phoenix – Lisztomania

2. Passion Pit – Moths Wings

3. Daft Punk – Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

4. Grovesnor – Nitemoves

5. Justice – D.A.N.C.E.

6. Passion Pit – Sleepyhead

7. Kill The Lights – Skinny White Girls (This isn’t on YouTube for some reason, or, if it is, you have to sift through a lot of creepy “skinny white girl” videos that I don’t want to. This is a CBC podcast – when you click on the link, just pause the current song playing at the top, and play this one instead.)

8. The National – Daughters of the SoHo Riots

9. The Go! Team – We Just Won’t Be Defeated

10. Sugar Ray – Falls Apart

This weekend I surprisingly did not listen to a lot of music, unless you count the Steam Whistle Unsigned show we went to Friday night. Therefore, I’m kind of lacking a theme here for the weekly sound. Since I’m writing this on Sunday and it’s rainy, and cold, and I just want to curl up with my cup of tea and bag of M&M’s, and that makes me feel all loveysmoochydovey, I’m doing my fave loveysmoochywanhwanhwanhwanhsongs

1. Ben Gibbard – You Remind Me Of Home

2. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young – Our House

3. Barenaked Ladies – Old Apartment

4. The Beach Boys – Wouldn’t It Be Nice

5. The Beatles – Two of Us

6. Wings – You Gave Me The Answer

7. Chicago – Beginnings

8. Cat Stevens – Can’t Keep It In

9. The Weakerthans – The Reasons

10. Donovan – Colours
