11 Great Songs That Sum Up The Working Day [Vid]

By Anthony Hughes | Jun 15, 2017 | Friday Funnies

Always look on the bright side of work…

Though we have good days and bad days, one would hope that the good days outweigh the bad… (and if not, it’s probably time to look for a new job!)

If you are part of that great big rat race, then this music video mash-up might just resonate with you…

(You can see the full videos below)!

1. Beyoncé – Ghost

On your way to work, questioning life…

2. The Seven Dwarves – Heigh-Ho

When you’ve been in for an hour and you’re finally getting into the groove.

3. Michael Jackson – Beat It

When the conversation suddenly turns to politics and you know this is going to end badly!

(This is particularly relevant at the moment, I’m sure!)

4. Rihanna – Take a Bow

When you accidentally put a kiss at the end of an email to an important client…

(We’ve all done it, right?)

5. R. Kelly – Bump N’ Grind

When someone brings you cake, but you’re on a diet…

But you eat it anyway (it’d be rude not to…)

6. Fast Food Rockers – Fast Food Song

Turning a “good day” into a “cheat day,” because you already slipped up once…

7. Bon Jovi – Livin’ On A Prayer

When you realise you’re halfway through the day.

You’ve made it this far… you can do it!!!

8. The Corrs – Runaway

When your boss calls a meeting to talk about why you’re behind with work… (instead of just letting you catch up).

9. Take That – Patience

When the meeting just goes on and on and on and on and on….

10. Grace – You Don’t Own Me

But then of course (because you’re behind) the boss asks you to stay late…

11. The Pointer Sisters – I’m So Excited

Finally, it’s time to go home.

What do you reckon?

Do you recognise some of these emotions?

Ok… I probably exaggerated a little bit! But it’s Friday and it’s all good fun.
