Labor Day dedication to all the working girls and guys out there
Labor Day Weekend is just about here so today we salute the workers of America on Lost and Found. In the'80s, the English band The Members also showed their appreciation for the women who bring home coin with Working Girl.
At first glance you might raise your eyebrows at a song title named Working Girl ,but while the term in some circles refers to a female who is a prostitute, the member of The Members keep their head out of the gutter on Working Girl. The liberated men of The Members are honest in their declaration that "she's the ticket to the easy life for me" as they are more than content to let their ladies whip up the bacon and fry it in a pan for them.
The video for Working Girl finds The Members at ease with their business professionally dressed mates as they do not feel threatened when the a lady picks up the tab. Working Girl did not chart in the U.K., but it was a minor hit on the U.S. Mainstream Rock Charts in 1981. In the U.K., their biggest hit was in 1979 with Sounds Of The Suburbs.
The Members are still together and put out an album entitled One Law in 2016, although lead singer Nicky Tesco is no longer with the band.
