Huey Lewis And The News: Workin' For A Livin'

In the US, its Labor Day and a perfect song for a day like today is the Huey Lewis and the News single from 1982 – “Workin’ for a Livin.” Actually, this song could have qualified for the bubbling under category as it only peaked at #41 – just barely missing the top forty charts.

As an album cut, it did much better on the mainstream rock charts at #20. The song came from the band’s second LP: “Picture This.”

Country Version

In 2007, Huey Lewis teamed up with country music great Garth Brooks to record the tune as a duet. The song peaked on the country charts at #19. It also missed the Hot 100 by charting at 115.
