Working in a Coal Mine 50th Anniversary – Zoolander/Devo

For my final post, someone put the Devo version over a series of images from Zoolander that take place in a coal mine. It doesn’t totally work but it’s funny.

So that’s 5 months of posting about Coal Mine, and yes I know it’s officially Working in the Coal Mine but that just always feels like the wrong article to me. Truly an Allen Toussaint classic.



Working in a Coal Mine 50th Anniversary – Dolly, Irma, Allen & Dr. John

As I’m coming to the end of my 4 months! of posting Coal Mine videos, I couldn’t resist this Dolly Parton special from 1989. The hair! The clothes! And of course, Allen Toussaint, Irma Thomas and Dr. John join in … even if it’s not the best version.

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Working in a Coal Mine with a variety of renditions.
