Tonya Haze's Labor Day Playlist

Ah, Labor Day. The un-official end of summer, and the day to celebrate all of the hard-working men and women who rock out with us every day!

The first Labor Day celebration was held in 1882 in New York City. It was proposed as a “workingman’s holiday” by the Central Labor Union. You can find out more about the history of Labor Day here.

No matter what you are doing this Labor Day, you will definitely need some music. To help with that, I put together a playlist of the Top 10 Classic Rock Songs I’m rocking out to this Labor Day.

#10 – Todd Rundgren – Bang On The Drum

At some point in your working life, you know you have related to “I don’t want to work”

#9 – Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band – Feel Like A Number

If you have ever had a job where the boss forgot your name, this one’s for you.

#8 – ZZ Top – Just Got Paid

Because - let’s be honest here – even if you love your job, you’re working for that $$$

#7 – Skid Row – Slave To The Grind

This is the anti-work song you need.

#6 – Rolling Stones – Salt Of The Earth

Let's drink to the hard working people!

#5 – Beatles - Hard Day’s Night

Because you have been working like a dog, you need to relax and enjoy this one.

#4 – Bachman Turner Overdrive – Takin’ Care of Business

You know I had to include this one…

#3 – Styx – Blue Collar Man (Long Nights)

This one goes out to those folks who are doing what they have to - to survive.

#2 – John Lennon – Working Class Hero

Because it’s John Lennon. Come On. And because a Working Class Hero is something to be.

#1 – Rush – Working Man

This had to be number one.

Bonus: Tom Waits singing “Heigh-Ho” from the Disney Classic, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Honorable mention:

Elvis Costello – Welcome To The Working Week

Loverboy – Working For The Weekend

Mick Jagger – Let’s Work

Bruce Springsteen – Working On The Highway
