I just received an email from songwriter “Merle Hazard” on the European Sovereign Debt Crisis. Merle writes …

Hi Mish

My alter-ego, Merle Hazard, is doing a song series this week on the Euro zone crisis. This is for Paul Solman’s Making Sen$e page at the PBS NewsHour web site.

The first song, on Spain, is out today. It’s the shortest, by a wide margin, in this week’s series. It’s really just an appetizer to get people started. More songs to follow daily, four new ones in all.

Note that we’re having a contest for viewer lyrics, which he talks about. We’re very interested in seeing what the blogosphere can send back to us. Maybe you’d like to write a lyric yourself?

Anyway, Merle will record the winning entry.

All best,

Here is a YouTube version of the same Spanish Song, as an alternate way to play it in case the PBS site is too slow.

This is a very short song. I expect the rest to be longer and better.

I submitted lyrics from my post “Imagine There’s No T-Bonds – It’s Easy If You Try”
