Work or Play Songs

Some of us are stuck at home now and would rather be at work. Some of us are at work and would rather be home. There are so many songs out there about work or play, what is your favorite? I will start with one of my favorites:

Bang the drum all day

Todd Rundgren 


Big Shout out to ALL the essential workers out there on the frontline! You're all heroes!!

Army Dreamers (Kate Bush):

"He should've been a rock star

But he didn't have the money for a guitar

(Should have been a politician)
But he never had a proper education"
