The intense panic and anger of filling out taxes at the last minute has finally been given the musical treatment it deserves – an operatic aria.

I sit like Zeus atop Olympus / If Olympus was a mountain of pay stubs and cab chits / And Zeus was a freelance web designer / And he just cried for hours on end.- Kieran Martin Murphy, "Taxes" song

The song is written and performed by Kieran Martin Murphy and Jan Randall.
