Top Ten Songs that remind me of my first job


I was one of those young girls who did not like babysitting, but I did love making money, so when I was 14 years old, I got a job at a bagel store working the 6am to 2pm shift on the weekends and then five days a week during the summer. I worked at this store for five years, so I have many wonderful memories from my mornings working there. We had one tape deck/radio behind the counter and to this day, when I hear the following songs, I always think of the bagel store because inevitably they were on someone’s mix tape that they brought into work. In case you were wondering, even after 5 years, I never got to bring in a mix tape because I was always the “baby.”
