Music Time… Celebrating Labor Day

Ready for the long Labor Day weekend?  How about we celebrate with music.  I’m looking for songs that have to do with work.  Could be the song title, lyrics in the song, the band’s name, the artist’s name, a band member’s name – anything related to work, labor, jobs, occupations, etc.

 

And don’t worry if you’ve posted something that’s already been posted.  I don’t expect you to read every single post.  Just list the title/lyric/name/etc. and if you’d like, a link to a YouTube video of the song.  *Adding more than 2 links in a single post will cause your post to go into moderation – so help me bump up the post count and try to keep it to one link per post.  But post as many times as you’d like!

 

Let’s get the weekend started:

 

Working for the Weekend – Loverboy

 

Work To Do – Average White Band

 

Telephone Man – Meri Wilson

 

Please Mr. Postman – The Carpenters

 

The Police (band name)

 

“Young teacher, the subject of schoolgirl fantasy…”
Don’t Stand So Close To Me – The Police

 

Whoa, this is harder than I thought.  Time to rack your brains.

 

GO WARRIORS!
GO WAHINE!

    I was out choppin’ cotton and my brother was balin’ hay

    And Mama hollered out the back door ‘y’all remember to wipe your feet’
    And then she said ‘I got some news this mornin’ from Choctaw Ridge’
    ‘Today Billy Joe MacAllister jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge.'”

    Okay, I promised Rod I’d start this no later than today, so I’d better get started!

    “Studio Musician,” Rupert Holmes. This song has a special place in Sweetie’s and my history.

    Barry Manilow covered it (that’s the version I first knew), but Mr. Holmes wrote it and recorded it first.

  162. mitchkeys says:

    Not to get off the subject but anyone remember the “Million Dollar Battles” on KKUA usually during Labor Day or some holioday? They would play a song and then another and then you vote The winning song would go on and play against another song. My favorite back then was an instrumental called Kee-Mo-Sabe by the Electric Indian. Not very politically correct….but I found out years later that Darryl Hall of Hall and Oates is playing keyboard on that tune. Just an offshoot topic.
