The Unemployment Blues

I have always thought that blues music reflects what is going on in the US well. Right now unemployment is high, this is not the first time that this has happened in this country. And blues musicians have documented it and offered over the years
some hope and escape from the frustration of not having a job.

The Y! Raddish Blog put together a play list of blues songs about Unemployment.

I thought it would be cool to see how many of the videos I could find at YouTube, plus some others that fit the theme. Enjoy, and if you are unemployed, here is hoping that you find a job soon.
