Video Playlist: Greatest Labor Day Work Songs

by @thoughtontracks

Today is the day dedicated in our nations history to recognize the persistent contributions made by the engine of our society. Thank you all economy stimulators at home and abroad. Today is your day working class.  Sit back, relax, grab a cold beverage, eat a hot dog and enjoy a list of my favorite tunes dedicated to the working man and woman alike.

The Beatles (Liverpool, England) – Hard Days Night from their legendary 1965 Shea Stadium performance

The Vogues (Turtle Creek, PA) – Five O’Clock World – 1965 single

Loverboy (Calgary, Alberta, Canada) – Working for the Weekend – 1981 music video

Scissor Sisters  (NYC)– Night Work – Live @ Brixton O2 Academy

The Ying Yang Twins (Atlanta, GA) – Whistle While you Twurk – 2000 Music Video

Huey Lewis & the News (San Francisco, CA) – Workin’ for a Livin’ – Live in 1982

Billy Joel (The Bronx) – Allentown – Tokoyo Dome in 2006

The Seven Dwarfs (Land of Magic Mirror, Disney)  – Heigh Ho – Snow White
