Romantic unemployment video of the night 

Do today's unemployed share a culture that would resonate in a modern version of this song, or are we so "diverse" that there is no similar common ambition, or lack thereof, even among our unemployed?

Here's my first response:

Cleveland Rocks!

This is Southside Johnny & The Jukes with "Friends" at a late club show in 1978. The "Friends" had their own show in Cleveland earlier the same night. Southside & The Jukes are still the best bar band ever!

The 1970s sucked but we at least got a lot of great diverse music out of it. If we drove down down The Bronx's Deegan -- Route 87 I could point out the very Housing Project apartment where Rap-Hip Hop started. I could go on ....

If you liked Cleveland Rocks, and wondered about Clarence's whereabouts

More thoughtful stuff to come, with comparisons to the 1930s and a actual answer to TH's question.
