We keep on turning #wedraaiendoor: John Lennon - Working class hero

Each Tuesday and Thursday Anne from Satur9's World and myself, play a musical pingpong game where we choose a new music song based on each other's previous choice by association of a name, style, lyric, style, location or whatever crosses in our mind. We never know what the next song will be chosen and are forced to explore beyond our comfort zone due to each other's choices.

You can find our in the mean time long and fun playlist on Spotify and op Youtube. Subscribing to it is possible!

This week I was triggered by the lyrics of "Birth School Work Death". It seems quite the fate of most of us that are doomed to work hard all of our lives. We all take part in the ratrace, which is a bit the circle of life.

  • Elton John - The circle of life
  • Dolly Parton - working nine to five
  • Dzjeff Vanuytsel - De Zotte morgen
  • Bob Marley - Rat Race
  • Rihanna - Work 

The song text mention at one point Micael Caine so I had to google this actor a bit out of curiosity and found that Madness had a song about him.   And apparently the lyrics of Liquido are often wrongly understood to refer to Micael Caine as well (but in reality it's truly "my cocaine"). 

  • Liquido - My narcotics
  • Madness - Micael Caine

In the end I found Working class hero the most appropriate link: 

  • John Lennon and Yoko Ono band - Working class hero
