Workers of the World, Cast Off Your Chains and Get Down

Happy May Day, working readers! Consider this a quick reminder that the unions got us five-day work weeks and health plans and paid vacation and everything good like that by fighting hard for them. So as a tiny tribute to the Worker’s Holiday, here are some tangentially-related and some actually-related party tracks:

Aretha Franklin – Chain of Fools (Unedited version) (Buy It)

Lee Dorsey – Yes We Can, Pt. 1 (Buy It)

Joe Turner – Chains of Love (Buy It)

Eric B. & Rakim – Paid In Full (Mini Madness – Coldcut remix) (Buy It)

Sam Cooke – Chain Gang (Buy It)

The Coup – Lazymuthafucka (Buy It)
