The Jam–Just Who is the 5 O’Clock Hero?

You won’t find many more bitter indictments of the working life than The Jam’s Just Who is the 5 O’Clock Hero?  It’s easily the frontrunner for the catchiest song ever written about wasting your life at your job, then being too exhausted to live once you get home from it.  Paul Weller tells the story of a man literally listening to life go on without him outside his windows as he tries to recover from his job.  It’s an experience everyone can relate to, whether it’s for one day or everyday.
