Junior Parker: Taxman

A taxman tribute, our 420 playlist, DJ Spooky's #PrivateJam and more in the music we tweeted this week

Tuesday, 15 April was Tax Day in the States, and depending on where residents fall on the country’s economic scale, some received a small chunk of change in return for year-long investment while others had to give up some hard-earned cash. To punctuate the dubious occasion, we gave a listen to Junior Parker’s slowed down, soulful rendition of The Beatles’ “Taxman,” which reminds us that while we may not always know what it’s for, just be thankful he doesn’t take it all because in reality, he can come for it any time he wants it. And file those extensions because if you don’t want to pay, you’ll just pay some more.
