View Full Version : Favorite 'Work' song

As I was surfing internet for ideas for favorite working job song (country, pop, Rock), nothing really poped up. Run of the mill Dolly Parton "9 To 5" and Johhny Paycheck's "Take This Job And Shove It" seem to be odds on favorite.

But all of sudden it hit me. The trail from Donna Summer's "She Work Hard For Her Money" led me to Tina Turner's "Private Dancer" song. Love that song so an easy pick for favorite work song.

If I had a single work song, I would go nuts. That's why I change the channel every morning. ;)
