Day 6 Nano PoBlano

WORK — Music Themes

Johnny chose the music theme WORK for this week.

Published on 14 Nov 2013
A day in the life of Mrs Mbeko in Bolera Village, Malawi.
“A wonderful video by Garreth Waterworth Owen on a day in the life of a rural Malawian woman. They work so hard and get so little thanks. Thanks to all our mothers, sisters and aunts, and thanks to Garreth

Aga Zaryan: Woman’s Work,  Tied to the household , chores looking after  the children  and still being expected  to be there as a maid  and lover  to the working husband ?

Kate Bush a woman work, more of the same as Aga’s  song  but more relevant!

Cat Stevens Mathew and Son  The  daily trudge  up in the morning  the daily  commute on the train to work, slave all day being ground  down  by  rules, clocking in and clocking out and then  the evening commute  home, then the next day  the same.

9 to 5 Dolly Parton : It is self explanatory.

Hard day’s night Beatles : The hard  life of a pop idol  😉

Harry Belafonte – Banana Boat Song The  hard life  of the men  working on the Banana boats , meeting  the  daily  tallly!

Desmond Dekker & The Aces – “Israelites” The  hard life of  the oppressed.

Lee Dorsey – Working In The Coal Mine   working  hard down the mine with  all it’s dangers.

Wichita Lineman – Glen Campbell  The dangerous and hard  working life of someone  who has to look after  the telephone and power lines. Stretching  through  seasons and counties.


Please check out they other themests they are so clever  they put me into the shadows.

Bear, Johnny, , Maddie, Eva

    Oh very good!! Woman’s work is never done: Men may rise with sun and work ’till dark, but woman’s work is never done.

    My back is aching just from the women’s work video clips .. and that ain’t the half of it….

    And coal mines … so many good coal mining songs it is hard choose, and Caribbean work songs, Banana Boat is a very good. Harry Belafonte’s voice is so mellow. The Aces are new to me. 😀 Lineman for the County and Galveston are the two songs of Glen Campbell’s that I like …. and you found a video clip with women working 😀

    Now I am worn out … thank you for your work and the work-out watching 😀

    Very nice Willow, I’m amazed how tirelessly the rural Malawian woman works all day, lovingly for her family. She brings great wealth of joy to her loved ones, what more can we possibly want?
    An awesome song from Aga, thanks for sharing this, totally new for me.
    Lee Dorsey… Oh Yeah! Desmond Dekker, Glen Campbell – i do believe u’ve covered the entire gamut. Well done, ok now i can’t get Working In The Coal Mine outta my mind. 😉 Have a most lovely weekend.♥

      Thanks Maddie I was also overwhelmed by the first video. As you say all that work all that love. I had great fun digging out the older song. Love Working in a coal mine it sticks on the mind, mind you it is Desmond Dekker attacking me. Have a great weekend too. ❤
