[Your Mighty Labors!] -- I originally posted these particular songs on May 20, 2011. On that date, the Flashback theme was inspired by Judgement Day. Why? Well, there was a (ha!) chance the world would end on May 21, 2011. And I figured there are the two events that can bring an end to the drudgery of working day to day: one is winning the lottery, and the other is ... the end of the world. However, I need a new post for this weekend, and I find that the songs from that previous Flashback work pretty well for a Labor Day Weekend! I have three songs about workin' for a livin' that you can enjoy while you take a break from your labors. (That is, if you get to have a break). Either way, some great 80s music will help you through the weekend, so read and hear more after the break!
