TaxMan by Blue Floyd

Posted by taxguru on April 1, 2010

For those who haven’t heard of the musical group, Blue Floyd, they cover Pink Floyd songs in a blues style. I’ve downloaded and listened to several of their concerts over the past few years.

I was browsing the new concert torrents and found this one from 1/17/2002 of Blue Floyd playing 16 different Beatles songs, including the one many of us tax pros have obsessed over for decades, George Harrison’s TaxMan.

The entire concert is in the FLAC format and is a 675 mb download.

I used my Nero software to make an MP3 conversion of the TaxMan song that is only 5 mb and sounds exactly like the 52 mb FLAC version; at least on my computer speakers.

[Update] – There are some very interesting facts about this iconic song on Wikipedia that I hadn’t heard before.
