Cheers to a holiday that every child laments. Labor Day signals the start of a new school year, and while some old folks might be getting a day off from work, every child across America is pained to hear these two simple words. Here are a couple Labor Day-related songs to get you young chilluns ready for another year. You’ll notice “Labor Day (It’s a Holiday)” by Black Eyed Peas isn’t available for download here. That was intentional.
The Format – If Work Permits
Hanalei – Nothing Works
J Dilla – Workinonit
Modest Mouse – The Devil’s Workday
Talib Kweli – Work it Out
Aesop Rock – Labor
Have a good Lazy, er Labor Day.
Also, be sure to check out the Instrumental Mixtape below this post. It took me a while to put together, so you better appreciate it. bitch. AND, I’m still looking for an invite to Oink so someone help me out please.
re: oink. I sincerely would if I could but I can’t (it’s all alien to me)
have a great LaboUr Day
Hey Zack, I like the labor day post, and by the way, you’re instrumental mixtape is nothing short of amazing. Just wanted to let you know that I put together a little Steve “The Crocodile Hunter” Irwin tribute mixtape over at my blog that contains a bunch of songs that reference animals (e.g. The Rolling Stones – Wild Horse / Grandaddy – Stray Dog & Chocolate Shake, etc.)
thanks for the love slug.
