Posted by Texas Gal in 7 deadly sins, Mix Tape, TexasGal.

Purpose: an aural recreation of each of the 7 Deadly Sins- third in the series is Greed. It’s good to be bad!

This mix can be a warning sign or cautionary tale- or it can be a celebration of the sin of greed- depending on your viewpoint. More than any other of the sins, this particular sin lends itself to a wide variety of music genres. Just don’t OD on the goodness.

How about Life’s been Good by Joe Walsh? Actually probably more of a pride song.

I’d also nominate “Any way you want it” by Journey.

Texas, I’m so sorry I stepped on your posting spot. I finished my post, hit “publish” and ran out the door. I totally forgot to edit the timestamp. Big apologies.

Even though “Get Rich or Die Tryin” exemplifies greed, I’m glad you didn’t put any Fiddy Cent on here. I saw enough of him during the boxing fight this weekend.

well, now “If I Had No Loot” is in my head for the day.


5. gordonshumway - Monday, May 7, 2007

I suggest “All that She Wants is Another Baby” by Ace of Base, which is also the official theme song of Angelina Jolie.

6. goathair - Monday, May 7, 2007

You could make a whole tape of Jay-Z GREED songs.

“Money, Cash, Hoes”
“Can I Get A…”
“Money Ain’t A Thang”

7. Matt_T - Monday, May 7, 2007

I was going to nominate “Money Ain’t A Thang” but goathair beat me too it.

Instead, I’ll recommend “C.r.e.a.m. (cash rules everything around me) by Wu-Tang.
