Work, Work, Work – A Remodeling Playlist (Friday Gold #20)

I’m going to spend this weekend gutting my kitchen. There will be power tools involved, but I figured I should have a playlist for those times when the saws aren’t running.
I had three rules when coming up with this playlist:

1. Every song needs to be something that my crew of deconstruction volunteers will like. That means no rap.

2. Every song needs to be upbeat enough to rip a cabinet off a wall to, but not so frenetic that you exhaust yourself. Pacing is key.

3. Only one song per artist (otherwise this would probably just end up being a Credence playlist.)

Here’s what I came up with. (When this playlist is over we’ll probably just play Credence albums on repeat.)


1. Green River – Credence Clearwater Revival

2. Inside Out – The Traveling Wilburys

3. Hard on Things – Howe Gelb

4. Work, Work, Work – Lee Dorsey

5. Strict Time – Elvis Costello

6. Hang On – Dr. Dog

7. Workin’ For the Music Man – Daniel Romano

8. Some Things Never Change – Timmy the Teeth

9. How Many More Years – Howlin’ Wolf

10. 0.0.7 (Shanty Town) – Desmond Dekker
