“Rise and grind,” The Man whispers in your ear as you swat away that incessant buzzing alarm. It is 7 a.m. and you’re expected at the scene where stimulation goes to die: your day job. The place where time extends and the seemingly heavier levels of gravity is the reason for your slumped shoulders. The good news is that you’re not alone in the dark abyss of making ends meet; the gals of Swell Tone feel ya, fellow soul(less) sisters and brothers. This week we bring you a playlist built to soundtrack the collapse of a worker-bee’s brain. Starting with fresh tunes chock full of snazzy guitar riffs and harmonious vocals, the tempos begin to drop, ending with beats as slow and steady as your mental deterioration. So sit back, try to relax, and nod knowingly along to your typical work day playlist, paired with a written commentary by yours truly (#relatable).
Today can’t be as bad as yesterday! Let’s knock this shift out.
What time am I off?…What should I have for dinner?
Whose birthday is next? I want cake.
Don’t talk to me, I’m busy go away, don’t- “Hello! How may I help you?”
I love my job, I love my job, I love my job.
Maybe if I slip and fall I can get worker’s comp…
What if money really did grow on trees?
*blank stare in to space*
I gotta get out of here. I need a new job. I need a rich spouse.
Does anyone else smell Spaghettios?
My boss is kind of attractive… our family would be cute. Would people come if we had a destination wedding?
I hate my boss.
I’m gonna go to the bathroom for a while…
That only took 5 minutes?
Seriously, someone has either eaten or stepped in Spaghettios.
Can I fall asleep with my eyes open?
Something is wrong with this clock.
Finally in the home stretch- only 29 minutes and 15 seconds to go.
I can’t wait to go home and sleep, I gotta be up early tomorrow.
