Money, Money, Money, Money…Money: A Tax Day Playlist

It’s that time of year again where many of us start pulling our hair out trying to understand 1040EZ forms. Not so easy, right? Or maybe you just received your accountant’s bill. Either way, we could always use a little more money! So in honor of April 15,  our tax day playlist is all about money—getting paid or owing it—and taxes. So whether you’re putting the finishing touches on your forms, or cutting Uncle Sam a big fat check, feel free to give it a listen and add a few of these to your playlist the week of April 15.

And just for laughs….

      Not this year. Hopefully next year.

    2. The profile I used last year for my 45 min. Foundations Biking class was a cadence ladder where we started at 80 rpm, climbed to 98 rpm before descending the ladder (95, 93) to the cool down.

      Pay My Rent – warm up (ride below 113 rpm)
      If I had a Million Dollars – 80 rpm (optional stand 1x)
      Billionaire – 86 rpm (optional stand 1x)
      Money – 89 (optional stand 1x)
      Lifestyles of Rich & Famous – recovery (ride below 115 rpm)
      Lawyers, Guns & Money – 94 rpm
      No Refund – 96 rpm
      Rich girl – 98 rpm
      Dollar A Day – Recovery at 82 rpm
      I Need a Dollar 95 prm
      Money Make Her Smile – 93 rpm
      1040 Blues/Ka-Ching – Cool down, stretch.
