Songs about Working

Whistle while you work - or hum, or even sing along if you know the words. These are songs about work, not that work is something you usually want to sing about. But it's a necessary fact of life, so you might as well have a song to go along with it anyway. Now where are those songs about getting paid?

Working songs actually have a long history. The earliest slaves who built the pyramids and the rowers who piloted ships across the Mediterranean from ancient Rome had longs they would sing while working - it helped them all work together to a beat. More modern times bring us the songs first forged by slaves working in the fields of the Southern Plantations. Now, hopefully, your job doesn't make you feel like a slave. But you can still have solidarity with all your working peers.
