It's all about work and workers in music.

So, workers of the musical world, you have nothing to lose but your B-sides!

@McGentrix,
I've been listening to (and appreciating) Kraftwerk a lot more these days.

And another trip to the 80s...

What about the Thompson Twins? They did a lot of electronic stuff too. The name comes from the two policemen in the Tin Tin books, the lead singers aren't twins.



When this came out I was working as a robot operator in a factory that made supermarket trollies, so the line, I know what it means to work hard on machines was particularly apposite.

@izzythepush,
I... am speechless.

I like the Thomspon Twins - am partial to Lies.

Here's a blue collar job, from a terminally (and unjustifiably) underrated Springsteen album.

@jespah,
Weird that no one posted this one already.
