It's that time of year again. The time that we finally listen to Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs' most famous employee - Moira Stuart - and fill in our self-assessment tax returns for the year.

It's a horrible task, but someone's got to do it. Usually you. Because of the whole 'self-employed' thing.

So as you sit down with your P60, Excel spreadsheets, and piles of receipts from July 2011, click play on our Spotify playlist below: 'Slight (Tax) Return: Music To Do Your Taxes By'.

From The Kinks to Joni Mitchell - via the likes of Abba, The Smiths, Louis Prima and two cover versions of 'Taxman' (because The Beatles, like Pink Floyd, are sadly missing from Spotify) - here are 25 tracks to hopefully ease the whole taxing process...
