I’ve been meaning to write a post about work songs since I started this blog. (In fact, back in 2008, I noted that I would write about it in an upcoming post. Three years later…)
But it never felt important enough. Too frivolous. Just a simple post about songs.
I was thinking about that again tonight when I heard of Steve Jobs death. So sad. Such a loss to society. He was serious but didn’t take himself too seriously. And he also had some wonderful visions.
He once said that: “Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”
And so, I come back to the post that I have really just wanted to write and have fun with. What are the top “work” songs? Rather than wait another three years to do a blog post on this, now seems appropriate. “The problem is I’m older now, I’m 40 years old, and this stuff doesn’t change the world. It really doesn’t,” Jobs once said.
