17. Eurozone debt crisis live: Italian bond yields spike

12.36pm More on the music. There's the Ghost of Tom Joad of course by Springsteen which is an entire album about hard times, referencing back to the Grapes of Wrath. We could go on forever with this theme.

12.22pm: My colleague Hannah Waldram from the Communities team has very kindly pulled together some of the comments you've been posting about music that is about or refers to financial crises, inspired by Steely Dan's Black Friday.

It seems to me that there's yet to be penned a definitive anthem to our current troubled times. Does the Occupy movement have a song to call its own? I don't know. Anyway, here are some excellent suggestions on the comments thread.

Eachran suggests The Internationale

SELAVY suggests Elvis Costello's Tramp the Dirt Down, and writes:

Perhaps that great altruist Sir Richard Branson could be persuaded to produce a "Crisis" single ? Maybe a duet featuring fellow humanitarian giants Berlusconi and Lord Bono ?

It could be released for the Xmas 'MARKET', with all profits going to a no - a Swiss bank account of their choice
