The Clash, “Career Opportunities”
England in the late 1970s looked a lot like America in 2012: there were no jobs and young people were pissed. Out of this atmosphere came The Clash's song “Career Opportunities,” in which Joe, Paul, Mick and Terry complain about jobs as menial as ambulance driving and “making tea at the BBC.” Wait, I’m sorry. These sound like great jobs. I would totally take those jobs.
