Music for Wall Street

I have some music suggestions for Wall Street:

Bad Moon Rising – Credence Clearwater Revival
It’s the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine) – R.E.M.
Falls Apart – Thousand Foot Krutch
Self Made Trap – The 77’s
Bad Day – Daniel Powter
Hold on Tight – Electric Light Orchestra
Hemorrhage (In My Hands) – Fuel
Dust in the Wind – Kansas
Danger Zone – Kenny Loggins

That’s enough to get you started.

Sounds like a pretty sensible strategy. So how come Southwest is the only airline able to execute on it?
