I have been wanting to make a compilation about economic and class life and struggles of people. I guess they don't have to be American. Songs about people living the ordinary life and some of their problems and simple pleasures.<br><br><br><br>
So far all I have are:<br><br>
Allentown- Billy Joel<br><br>
Born in the USA- Springsteen<br><br>
Fast Car- Tracy Chapman<br><br>
Pink Houses- John Cougar Mellancamp<br><br><br><br>
Any other suggestions?

I actually have a BTO CD. We used the song as theme music when I played hoops in the 80s.

How could we forget..."The Ghetto" by Elvis Presley. (And Too Short's 1990 version.)
