Music Monday! Working for the Weekend

We all do it, in one way or another, work all weekend, though perhaps not in the way that this song details. But still a fitting and groovy song for today, where we are celebrating Labor Day. The first big Labor Day Celebration was 99 years before today's Music Monday! feature. It was to celebrate organized labor, and has come to encompass, more generally, working people in the US. If you have your own business, you know that working for the weekend, including Labor Day, is the norm.


Loverboy, an iconic 80's band, came on the scene in 1980, releasing this arena rock song Working for the Weekend in 1981. I was just 10 years old, the concept of working, much less working for the weekend, was foreign to me. But growing up in the 80's, this song was a large part of the music that shaped the decade.
So, get your red leather pants out, sport your red headband, and rock on, while you are undoubtedly checking your email, listing items, networking, creating......WORKING.

And while you are at it, light that candle as you burn it at both ends.

  1. Oh, my god, the 80s -- grew up with that, and it's the 80s station I rock to on the treadmill (if not the 70s.) Gettin' old! Have a great day. I'm so beat after being beaten by Irene that I am NOT working, just catching up on blogs...:))
