Labor Day: The last hurrah of summer and the universal salute to the workforce. Whatever you’re doing today, do yourself a favor and blare at least one these six tracks today.
Styx – “Blue Collar Man (Long Nights)”
Written and sung by Tommy Shaw, this Styx track never fails to resonate.
Bachman-Turner Overdrive – “Takin’ Care of Business”
Sure…we’d all like to work at nothing all day, but things cost money.
The Pretenders – “Back on the Chain Gang”
Alright, so the song’s more about relationships, but it’s just too good not to include.
Rush – “Working Man”
Come for the rousing track; stay for Alex Lifeson’s awesome solo.
Loverboy – “Working for the Weekend”
Aren’t we all, really?!
Huey Lewis & The News – “Workin’ For A Livin’”
Anyone else can’t help but think of Tom Hanks in Big when you listen to this track?
