  1. Don’t forget lounge music:

    Call Me Irresponsible – Frank Sinatra
    Ain’t That A Kick In The Head – Dean Martin
    What Kind Of Fool Am I – Sammy Davis, Jr.

  2. How about:

    After the Gold Rush – Neil Young
    Crazy Train – Ozzy Osbourne
    It’s the End of the World as We Know It – R.E.M.
    I Wanna Be Sedated – The Ramones

    Or, Gimme Shelter, Let it Bleed, and You Can’t Always Get What You Want, all by the world’s greatest rock ‘n roll band, the Rolling Stones

  3. @Andy: I see your emo and raise you some indie.

    “Fake Empire” by The National
    “Everything Hits At Once” by Spoon
    “Own Your Own Home” by Rogue Wave
    “Losing My Edge” by LCD Soundsystem (though I could have easily used “New York I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down”)
    “Dreamworld” by Rilo Kiley

    @Ron: #8 on your list is perfect AND a great song…should really be #1. Anyway, I’d like to pre-empt any future post you do about the Detroit car makers: “The Big 3 Killed My Baby” by the White Stripes. You’re welcome.

  4. @Dan: “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg” is the clear #1 on Wall Street. And thank you for saving me the trouble of doing another post. If you would, perhaps, you could comment on a range of topics so as to pre-empt all future blog posts. 🙂

  5. Hi,

    i d´like to hear the songs on or Building a 2008 “Songs for wallstreet” Radio would be nice.


  6. @Boris: Good one.

    @Tom: Thanks for commenting. You are, of course, absolutely correct. I do hope, however, that those who make money (on Wall Street) in the future are those who EARN it by helping their clients to make money too.

  8. These songs seemed not that famous specially the number 1 song.

  9. @resourcesandmoney: Not that famous?!@#$@ These are classics! As for the #1 song, two different bands had a top hit with the song, The Temptations and The Rolling Stones. Perhaps you’ve heard of the Stones?
