Notes From Underground: Fed + Markets = The Masochism Tango

October 1, 2015

In the famous song of 1960s lyricist and polemic,Tom Lehrer, the song is about a relationship based on masochism, which certainly seems to be relevant to the FED and the stock markets. The song stresses how pain is pleasure:

I ache for the touch of your lips dear,
but much more for the touch of your whips dear,
You can raise welts like nobody else
As we dance to the masochism tango
Bash in my brain,and make me scream with pain
Then kick me once again
And say we’ll never part
I know too well,I’m underneath your spell
So darling if you smell something burning it’s my heart … hic … excuse me …
Take your cigarette from its holder
And burn your initials in my shoulder
Fracture my spine
And swear that you’re mine
As we dance to the Masochism Tango
