Last Labor Day, The Nation’s Peter Rothberg offered his take on top songs about labor. It’s a good list. Above is Which Side Are You On? sung by the Almanac Singers. The description at the page is very interesting. Tennessee Ernie Ford’s Sixteen Tons is always good to hear.
CliffviewPilot.com’s Jerry DeMarco also offered his top 20 (it’s actually 21) labor songs last year, and it’s also a good list.
