Tomorrow is Labor Day in the USA (not to confuse with the un-American and communist "May Day" celebrated in other parts of the world), and here is a bunch of pertinent and patriotic audio goodies to go with it.
Janeen Brady - Free Enterprise (MP3): The one and only Janeen Brady, who also brought us the legendary hymn "I'm A Mormon" (available on the 365 Days Project), wrote this song praising the virtues of Free Enterprise, competition and hustling hot chocolate. Taken from the wholesome children's album "Take Your Hat Off When The Flag Goes By".
Amway Singers - Recruit, Train and Motivate (MP3): If you don't have a job, stop whining and join the largest pyramid scheme in the nation. It is easy, and this song tells you how, introducing the fundamental American virtue of screwing over your friends and neighbors.
Michael Brown - The Woolworth Manager's Work Song (MP3): Most people never realized how hard it is to be a Woolworth manager. We post this song as our Labor Day present to the Woolworth managers of this world. So please, the next time you are shopping at Woolworth, ask for the manager and tip him a quarter. He deserves it.
Norris the Troubadour - Wall Street Daily Cry (MP3): The 20th century has changed many of our preconceived notions, and if you like it or not, today's consensus seems to be that stockbrokers actually do perform work. This song is taken from "Our Centennial Album" by prolific song-poem writer Norris the Troubadour aka Norridge B. Mayham.
Jay Darrow - Reflections of the Life of an Assassin (MP3): Maybe all those traditional jobs aren't your cup of tea, and you would like to become a political terrorist? Right now, it might still be the second most reviled job in America, but this should change after more people listen to Jay Darrow's personal account of his career.
