Welcome to the Working Week

From 1963, please enjoy the incomparable Sam Cooke, live at Miami's Harlem Square Club, and his ode to toiling for The Man -- "Chain Gang."

A great version, to be sure; you can practically smell the cigarettes, scotch and sweat. But if truth be told, I'm posting it because -- well, because I'm still snowed under with a bunch of freelance assignments that preclude me getting a Listomania up tomorrow.

I promise -- I'll make it up to you.

Actually, science has proven that second-hand smoke causes second-hand cool.
