What would your workplace theme song be?

Posted by Janet Smith on July 7, 2008

I’ve still got TLC’s new show, The Singing Office, on my mind. On the show’s Website, I found a community forum that asks this question: Is there a song that describes the people or atmosphere in your office? What would your workplace theme song be?

Most (though not all) of the responses paint pictures of unpleasant workplaces.

One person had this to say about a theme song for her job: “They call it Stormy Monday, but Tuesday is just as BAD!”

And I doubt things improve on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday.

Another entry: “Sadly the first to pop in my head is ‘The Adams Family’!!” (For those of you who can’t recall the theme song to that program I loved as a kid: They’re creepy and they’re kooky, Mysterious and spooky, They’re all together ooky, The Addams Family.)

In response to that, someone wrote, “Hahahaha!! Even though I have a lot of co-workers who could be categorized as distant and not-so-distant relatives of the Adams Family, our song here would probably be “Working For A Living” although each of us is secretly singing, “Take This Job and Shove It”!

Take this job and shove it.  Is that what your employees would choose as a workplace theme song? And if you think it doesn’t matter…think again.
