Just to See You Smile - Tim McGraw
Skipper Dan - by Weird Al Yankovic
Thrift Shop - Macklemore
This "rapsodic" hit about shopping at the thrift shop pokes fun at rappers who flaunt their spending. Maklemore himself claimed that this song was an attempt to promote saving. In this contribution to music for econ, Dirk Mateer and James Lang provide a veritable quiz of economic terms that show up in the thrift shop.
Cost of Livin - Ronnie Dunn
The backdrop for this video is a Tennessee town that losses its largest employer. The lyrics paint a picture of a military vet who is looking for work. The economics focuses on different kinds of unemployment, some good and some bad. For the vet and the town, things look pretty dire. Animation and content provided by Dirk Mateer and James Lang.
