There have been plenty of songs throughout the decades that convey popular sentiment about the economy, recession and financial struggles. Here is our list of popular melodies about these shattered dreams and the will to go on. You can add your own in the comment section below.

Allentown- Billy Joel

Well we're waiting here in Allentown - For the Pennsylvania we never found.
For the promises our teachers gave, If we worked hard, If we behaved.
So the graduations hang on the wall. But they never really helped us at all.
No they never taught us what was real- Iron and coke, Chromium steel.

Styx - Blue Collar Man (lyrics)

Make me an offer that I can't refuse
Make me respectable man
This is my last time in the unemployment line. So like it or not
I'll take those long night, impossible odds - Keeping my back to the wall
If it takes all night - to be just who I am
Well I'm gonna be a blue collar man

Roger Hodgson - Take The Long Way Home

When you look through the years and see what you could have been
oh, what you might have been, If you'd had more time.

Angie

All the dreams we held so close seemed to all go up in smoke
Let me whisper in your ear:
Angie, Angie, where will it lead us from here?

Do You Know Where You're Going To? Diana Ross

Now looking back at all we've had
We let so many dreams just slip through our hands
Why must we wait so long, before we see?
How sad the answers to those questions can be

King of the road- Roger Miller
