Market the Dow about a Theme Song

So...the stock market's had a rocky week.

Certainly an understatement to say the least. With the world's largest financial systems and governments doing what they can, it doesn't seem like anything's quite enough.

Will 2008 be seen as the year the world went Socialist? Will they call this past week Panic 2008? It's certainly mind baffling to think of the money that has been lost on Wall Street this week in retirement funds and other investment accounts.

All that to say, perhaps the Dow Jones Industrial Avg needs a theme song. You know, something to spice it up a bit.

Yet I can only think of two songs that could adequately describe what I've seen this week.

Here's my theme song picks for this months Dow: Fallin' by Alicia Keyes and You're Love is Like A Roller Coaster by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Any other ideas for Stock Market Theme Songs that would describe what we've seen in the past couple weeks?

How about 'Free Fallin' by Tom Petty?

@ james -- good call!

I'd go for "Spinning Wheel" by Blood, Sweat and Tears, i.e. "what goes up, must come down..."
