Five For Friday (Work Edition)

In case you don't know, it works like this:
(Idea stolen from Ick Music)
I hit the shuffle button on my iTunes and share my five with a bit of insight for each track. Then it’s your turn! Just share the first five random track of your shuffle in the comments and see what your fellow readers are listening to as well.

Used the iTunes search 'work' to do this Five For Friday in honor of Tax Day this week.

1.) "Lord Have Mercy On The Working Man" by Travis Tritt from the album "The Very Best of Travis Tritt." Still love this song, though the video used to make me mad because it made fun of Dan Quayle. Oh well, I think the song still holds true today.

2.) "Work This" by MC Hammer from the album "Please Hammer, Don't Hurt 'Em." Oh man, now everyone knows I have the WHOLE album on my iTunes. ;-)

3.) "The New Workout Plan" by Kanye West from the album "The College Dropout." It's a pretty vile song lyrically but it's kinda infectious.

4.) "We Can Work It Out" by Stevie Wonder from the album "Signed, Sealed, Delivered." Of all the covers of Beatles songs done over the years, this one and Ray Charles' cover of "Something" are the best, IMO. This one really grooves.

5.) "Work (Acoustic)" by Jars of Clay from the album "The RELEVANT Podcast." (Get the MP3). This is an acoustic performance from The RELEVANT Magazine podcast. It's a great version of a great song from the very good album "Good Monsters."
