Merle's greatest hits are gathered together on this YouTube page.


Start with: "(Gimme Some of That) Ol' Atonal Music", from 2019, and "Time with You," which came out in 2022.

Some of Merle's prior songs are "How Long (Will Interest Rates Stay Low)?," which came out in 2016, and "Dave's Song," which came out in 2018.

He released "Dual Mandate," in 2014, and "The Great Unwind" in 2013. Some of Merle’s most popular earlier songs are “Inflation or Deflation?,” "Fiscal Cliff," and “In the Hamptons.” “The Greek Debt Song” is a favorite as well (although it caused controversy in Greece).

“Double Dippin’” is also worth a listen.

There is a cool video of the song Merle wrote with Marcy Shaffer, "Diamond Jim," being taken seriously, or at least semi-seriously, by MIT's Simon Johnson. The bit with Simon starts at the 21 second mark.

Merle sang a unique version of an old gospel favorite, live at the 2010 American Economic Association convention, in this clip:  “Old Time Recession.”

He also sang some Eurozone crisis songs on Germany and Italy for the PBS NewsHour economics team.
Here are lyrics for some of Merle songs in German. (Feel like submitting additional translations to Merle? Email [email protected], and he will thank you with embarrassing sincerity.)
