MIX: I Would Like You Better If You Had A Job...

America's hardest-working band in uniform.

...Cause you ain't no Picasso! Enjoyed your Labor Day Monday free from work (hopefully)? I know I did (even though I was almost roped into working today - go figure). In celebration of Labor Day, I've compiled a list of work-related songs about some of the best and worst jobs out there. Back on the clock tomorrow. Sigh. Looks like someone's got a case of the Tuesdays.

The Replacements: "Waitress In The Sky" [MP3] -- MORE INFO
Being a flight attendent must not be fun when the Replacements are on board. Or when there are snakes on the plane.

The Eames Era: "Year Of The Waitress" [MP3] -- MORE INFO
Being a waitress on land is tough business too.

Busdriver: "Casting Agents and Cowgirls" [MP3] -- MORE INFO
Who caught this guy's performance at UCSB earlier this year? Here's hoping for another great year of free concerts!

The Mutineers: "Coffee Mug" [MP3] -- MORE INFO
A little ditty for all of the unemployed, of the "I'll get a job soon" school of thought. I know that thought pretty well.

Tesco Chainstore Mascara: "Job Is A Four Letter Word" [MP3] -- MORE INFO
This band = brilliance. Go find their cover of "That Thing You Do!"

Terry Lee Hale: "Work Song" [MP3] -- MORE INFO
I was introduced to Hale's music via Sixeyes, and I'm so glad.

Bishop Allen: "Middle Management" (Demo) [MP3] -- MORE INFO
Bishop Allen at its most frantic and fun.

The Young Tradition: "Whores" [MP3] -- MORE INFO
The world's oldest profession. It's really a lovely song... not at all what you'd expect from the title.
