So I was driving to a meeting in Deerfield this morning (yes, my life is that gay) and while navigating in the driving snow, I enjoyed the offerings of the FM radio dial. It's important to note that I have always been a devotee of the free airwaves - it's how I've honed my skills as a premiere Name the Tuner. But something weird happened today.

Usually, I keep my fingers resting lightly on the dial, flitting between stations, keeping an eager ear tuned for something special and ready at an instant to roll away from anything vile. This time, while scanning the airwaves, I came across the familiar warblings of Huey Lewis and the News - Working for a Living. Though my head told me to move along, my fingers would not respond. I was strangely drawn to this song and could not tear myself away. "I'm takin' what they're givin', cause I'm workin' for a livin'." I was memorized. Huey grabbed me and would not let go.

What are your favorite Huey Lewis lyrics? Please share. In the meantime, I give you:
