29 January

A day for the worker, if ever I saw one! Whilst acknowledging the great events on this day such as Charles Curtis of Kansas becoming the first Native American U.S. Senator in 1907 and the first publication with the name of the author, Edgar Allan Poe, being published ("The Raven" in The Evening Mirror in New York, 1845) and the wonderful "ultimate high" of the hippie era, the Mantra-Rock Dance, taking place in San Francisco on this day in 1967, featuring Janis Joplin, Grateful Dead, and Allen Ginsberg, we instead pay tribute to music and us workers!

On this day in 1966, the Beatles were number one on the US Billboard with “"We Can Work It Out" and in 1983, Men at Work achieved the same with their hit “Down Under”. But we love a bit of disco here at the Free Lucky Day Lottery, so the day goes to Rose Royce, who were number one on this day with “Car Wash”! Sing along now, with feeling!

(Work and work) Well those cars never seem to stop coming 
 (Work and work) Keep those waxin' machines humming 
(Work and work) My fingers to the bone 
 (Work and work) Keep up, I can't wait till it's time to go home 
Car wash 
Talking about the car wash yeah 
Car wash yeah 
Come on y'all and sing it with me 
Car wash 
Sing it with feeling
