Working For A Living
I apologize for not coming up with a more creative Friday Night Music option for your listening this weekend, but it is Labor Day Weekend, which is meant to celebrate the labor movement in America.
While I have been in labor and led a labor "association" (the International Association of Firefighters, Local 3474, this song seems to make sense this weekend. What is not to like about good old fashioned rock and roll and a spirit of I take what they give because ultimately I am working for a living. There is also though an underlying strength to that message that I can withstand because I am standing for my family too.
Ultimately I have never lived in an era where the worker was subjected to the horrors of the American industrial expansion that brought about the great strength of the labor movement in the early 20th century so I get to just enjoy the music. Happy Friday.
