Song Now Let’s Talk About How Bad This Song Is, Okay?

I couldn’t find an official video for Loverboy’s “Working for the Weekend” so this nearly torturous live performance will have to suffice.
Update: Commenter Left Coast found the official video (apparently it wasn’t hard, I’m just blind):
I really can’t stand the chorus of this song. I mean, it’s no “Built This City” (which, by the way, was co-written by Bernie Taupin?? I never knew! How’d you go from “Levon” and “Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters” to that, dude??), but it’s still pretty bad.
When I had a car, when I had easy access to a radio, I would hear that song at least once a week while station surfing, usually on a Friday. While it should bring happiness, since it’s usually used as a late-Friday afternoon anthem, it really just makes me wanna scream “SHUT UP! NO ONE IS WORKING FOR THE WEEKEND AND NO ONE WANTS A PIECE OF YOUR HEART!”
I’ve been working on my rage issues.
Anyway. That song is a waste of good cowbell.
(And to Left Coast, you’re so wrong about this song being better than the Pixies’ “Alec Eiffel.”)
