You should, people always did sing while working. Our life isn't that sad.I've tried to find some songs for traders, quants etc. but have found only two shanties for accountants.and hereAnd something for Russian quants and developers.

I made a song about derivatives many years ago, played it for my master in finance students. They did not seem that happy about it, some complained about the song-voice.  With massive improvements in amateur music software may be I should give it another try, voice-filters could be useful!

I also made a Rap called Bull, but this is in Norwegian so hard to follow for you guys, only Bearish can possibly get it, if he not has forgot his Norwegian.

Bull and Bear Market!

my derivatives songs are in English and is better, but think the CD got destroyed...

Indeed. I had no problems following it. The early part was faintly reminiscent of a young Øystein Sunde, “spiseplikt på Briskebytrikken” comes to mind. Toward the end, the crisis definitely got to you. Crescendo!
