It's the Friday before the three-day Labor Day weekend. Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers.

People celebrate the Labor Day weekend in different ways; some stay home and relax, others go out of town. Some towns have parades. Some families have barbecues. Minnesotans may choose to go to the State Fair. Here at The Current, we'll present a Block-Rockin' Weekend that starts today at 10 a.m., and continues all the way to midnight on Monday.

What does Labor Day mean to you? Specifically, what music sets the mood for the way you spend the three-day Labor Day weekend? We'd like to create a playlist that reflects that.

So for today's 9:30 Coffee Break, what songs do you want to hear for your Labor Day weekend? Send us your request, and tell us why your song says "Labor Day" to you.
