Jobs and Occupations

I don’t remember doing this subject. If we did, it was years forever ago. 😸

There should be a lot of these songs, titles or lyrics with jobs or occupations, etc.

 

Journeyman - Blackmore’s Night

 

Journeyman - Iron Maiden

 

From Wikipedia —- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Journeyman

The term "journeyman" was originally used in the medieval trade guilds. Journeymen were paid daily and the word "journey" is derived from journée, meaning "whole day" in French. Each individual guild generally recognised three ranks of workers: apprentices, journeymen, and masters. A journeyman, as a qualified tradesman, could become a master and run their own business, but most continued working as employees.[3]

The lawyers dwell on small details 

Since daddy had to fly


The lawyers clean up all details

Since daddy had to lie

Get Over It - Don Henley

 

The more I think about it ol' Billy was right
Let's kill all the lawyers kill 'em tonight 
You don't wanna work you wanna live like a
King but the big bad world doesn't owe you a thing
Get over it

Lol @1968Hoya46 

They are a bit closer to the fringe than alot of bands.  They've been around, off-and-on and in a few different iterations since the 1980's.

...Kinda like Mindless Self Indulgence I can't say what it is about their music that prompts me to keep tabs on them, but I do.  Not like a Fan or Groupie, just take a listen from time to time.
