Tax Songs (in case you filed an extension)

Paul L. Caron, over at TaxProf Blog recently had two posts up about tax songs - songs especially poignant for those lonely nights studying tax law, or doing your taxes, when you need a bit of theme music.

TaxProf links to Taxes Are Best When You Pay Nothing at All and Nickel Creek performing The Tax Man. But if you know a lawyer who lives for the law, you don't have to stop there. In the course of my work, I've been treated to two other tunes, "The Judge Song" and "I'm Billing Time", performed by the Bar & Grill Singers. You can listen to samples of many of their songs at their site and might be surprised to find they're really very melodious and enjoyable.

"The Bar & Grill Singers, all of whom are practicing attorneys in Austin, Texas, have entertained lawyers and non-lawyers since their 1991 debut in a one-performance musical revue. Now appearing year-round across the nation, the Singers spoof themselves and their profession with clever lyrics set to a variety of musical styles. They needle everything and everyone around the law, including clients, billing practices, legal ethics, bored jurors, and (gasp!) federal judges."
