I've always thought this is a song about doing applied econometrics but I guess you behaviouralists could use it too http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gyDb4szpWmc
The Cardigans' "Lovefool" produces images of a heartbroken behavioural economics pleading with modern macro to embrace it.Reason will not lead to solutionI will end up lost in confusion [...]So I cry, I pray, and I begLove me, love me,Say that you love me.Fool me, fool me,Go on and fool me.Love me, love me,Pretend that you love me.Need me, need me.Just say that you need me.I can't care about anything but you.
I think this might be turning into behavioural economics in song (which is good). I will attempt a post on that when time permits. Flaming Lips Yeah Yeah Yeah. "If you could blow up the world with the flick of a switchWould you do it?If you could make everyobody poor just so you could be richWould you do it?If you could watch everybody work while you just lay on your back Would you do it?If you could take all the love without fiving any backWould you do it?And so we cannot know ourselves or what we'd really do...With all your powerWith all your powerWith all your powerWhat would you do?If you could make your own money and then give it to everybodyWould you do it?If you knew all the answers and could give it to the massesWould you do it?No no no no no no are you crazy?It's a very dangerous thing to do exactly what you wantBecause you cannot know yourself or what you'd really do"
