The Weekly Top 5: Songs for the Working (Wo)Man

Click to enlarge

Today's Top Five Countdown works with the knowledge that May Day is upon us, so Scott and I thought we'd get into some songs that honor working men and women(or at least relate to work itself) a good list with abundant possibilities to choose from. Rush's "Working Man," John Lennon's "Working Class Hero," Dolly Parton's "9 to 5" and  CCR's "Proud Mary" just name a few of those possibilities, though they did not make the cut. What did make it then?

#5

Elvis Costello "Welcome to the Work Week"

#4

Junior Delahaye "Working Hard for the Rent Man"

#3

The Rolling Stones "Salt Of The Earth"

#2

Howard Tate "8 Days On The Road"

#1

Tennessee Ernie Ford "16 Tons"

Tune in next week when Scott and I get at another Top 5 Countdown; the best rock/rap poets. Any ideas? Let us know.
