Music Monday: “Unemployed” by Michael McDermott

In 2001, I was laid off from the best paying job I had ever had, and still have ever had. The evening of the day I got news that I was unemployed, Sue and I went to see Michael McDermott at the Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis.

The Cedar Cultural Center is a small venue but a nice place to watch a concert. I was drinking a Summit beer and doing my best to enjoy the evening, but I was having a hard time not feeling sorry for myself… until McDermott started singing this song. It has been one of my favorite songs ever since.

It isn’t much of a video… but the song is great.
