"Nine to five, they got you where they want you.
There's a better life and you think about it, don't you?
It's a rich man's game, no matter what they call it,
and you spend your life putting money in his wallet."
-Nine to Five (Dolly Parton)
"Nine to Five"
Atlantic City, New Jersey
Atlantic City. Board walk Empire. Monopoly-ville. Thousands of out of work "nine to fivers", in the same boat with thousands of their former nine to five friends. Casino and resort closings. So much for service and devotion. Hard times in AC. Nine to five would be pretty good betting odds on an AC comeback. Doubt you'd get them tho. It's all taking and no giving these days. It's enough to drive you crazy...if you let it.
Soooo, I was driving in the car last week and happened upon an "oldies" station while satellite radio surfing. A song came on that made me immediately think of two things:
1. Damn I'm old
2. Can't believe I had forgotten all about that song...probably because I'm damn old
So next week's Song-ography song is the damn old, but damn good...
"From a Distance"
Thanks for stopping in, commenting, linking up, and visiting the other Song-ography participants. Mucho gracias whether it's some, or all. I'm trying to figure out what I can do to help make this link up grow. So if you have any thoughts on the matter, please feel free to drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. One thought I had is that I was wondering if it would be easier if I posted a month's worth of Song-ography prompts at a time...so you could see what is coming up and plan easier. Whatcha think?
Can't wait to visit everyone's blogs and see what you've been up to with "Nine to Five".
