The Songfactors' Choice Top Ten #301 - Blue Collar Special


Recommended Posts

When I nominated my two songs, I thought for sure MiamySammy was going to nominate "Working At The Factory" by The Kinks, so I left it for him.

Ah, it just didn't come to me. Good one, though. :thumbsup:

Actually, there are a ton of Kinks songs that could be fall into the "working man" category.

And thanks for the links, Edna. :thumbsup:
