Playlist: Going backstage

Posted by Chau Tu

For Marketplace, Friday, October 8, 2010

Whether you notice them or not, film props often play an important role in creating a realistic scene. But what happens to them after a shoot is done? Stephanie Hughes investigated into the matter. The French government is looking to raise the retirement age, but workers are complaining. Don't call it laziness -- they're arguing it's part of the culture. On the job front here in the U.S., looks like the private sector is gaining new jobs, and the Fed is planning on pushing more money into the economy to help unemployment. There were also stories about young college grads getting married earlier than non-B.A.-holders, and the commuter rail tunnel under the Hudson River getting its plug pulled. Here are the songs we played:

  • What's the Crazy - OddiseeBuy
  • The Coast is Clear (for Fireworks) - Nobody
  • Yakety Yak - The Coasters
    Buy
  • Half Asleep; Half Awake - Henry CowBuy
