Workman Song “This One’s for the Kids”

Sean McMahon is Workman Song, and this one could possibly be heard as the 2017 equivalent, in scope of message, to the earnest, is he serious, 70’s cheese pop anthem by Norman Greenbaum, “Spirit in the Sky”, though the sound itself is more in the vain of old Elton John, or Nilsson…or at least it is early on. After about a minute it morphs from sparse piano ballad with a metronomic beat to a fat, practically glam rock Mott the Hoople sound-wall namely one with all “All the Young Dudes” spray painted on it. It’s a small epic.
