Music for the Shop

I’m trying to get a shop-appropriate playlist together and I’m hoping you can help me fill it out. Here’s what I have so far:

  • “If I Were a Carpenter,” Tim Hardin
  • “Norwegian Wood,” The Beatles
  • “If I Had a Hammer (The Hammer Song),” Pete Seeger and Lee Hays
  • “U Can’t Touch This,” M.C. Hammer (Because of the lyrics “Stop. Hammer time.”)
  • “Screwdriver,” The White Stripes
  • “Mr. Fix It,” UB40
  • “Build It Up, Tear It Down,” Fatboy Slim
  • “Let’s Build A Home,” The White Stripes
  • “Another Brick in the Wall, Part II,” Pink Floyd
  • “Build Ya Skills,” KRS-One

And here’s what I have for songs that use tools as musical instruments:

  • “The Lumberjack,” Jackyl (It has a chainsaw solo!)
  • “RDA (Rock Death America),” The Rheostatics (Circ saw and/or drill starts at the beginning of the song)
  • The Weakerthans (I know they use a saw in a few of their songs. What’s their best use of a saw as a instrument?)

All right folks. What am I missing?
