Startup Lyrics

I'm driving across the country right now, listening to a lot of music. Some lyrics stand out - reminding me of startups.

Here are a few, with a short mix tape at the end. If you have any others, post a comment and I'll add them to the mix.

Update: I'll add the song suggested over at HackerNews shortly.

Timbaland - "The Way I Are". This might be a stretch, but I love this song. A good startup might be cash strapped, but willing to give equity to early important hires. It's not about the perks, but the aligned incentives to work to build the future.
Oh, baby, it's alright now, you ain't gotta flaunt for me
If we go dutch, you can still touch my love, it's free
We can work without the perks just you and me
Thug it out 'til we get it right

The White Stripes - "Little Room". Start small, get big.
When you're in your little room
and you're working on something good
but if it is really good
You're gonna need a bigger room
and when you're in the bigger room
You might not know what to do
You might have to think of
How you got started sittin' in your little room

Daft Punk - "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger". Nothing is perfect. That's actually really good. Things can always get better. Go work on that. The version I used is from the latest live album 'Alive'. Excellent mix with "Around The World"
Work It Harder Make It Better
Do It Faster, Makes Us stronger
More Than Ever Hour After
Our Work Is Never Over

How about Get a Life by Freestylers? That song is perfect for startups.
