Administrative Professional's Day (or National Secretary's Day) falls on the Wednesday of the last full week of April, and can trace its roots back to the creation of National Secretaries Week way back in 1952.
First up, for all you "BOSSes" out there, here is a free download of a song called Happy Secretary's Day by Baby Teeth from their 2011 concept album BOSS, including a cover of Bruce Springsteen's Factory. So get busy, grab the track, buy some flowers or chocolates, and appreciate your Administrative Professionals!
Chromeo - Business Casual (2010)
Robert Palmer - Pressure Drop (1975)
Electrofunk duo Chromeo's 3rd studio album, Business Casual, was shot by British erotica photographer Harri Peccinotti (famous for the 1968 and 1969 Pirelli Calendar) and designed by French
firm Surface to Air (whose clients also include fashion brands Louis
Vuitton and Tsumori Chisato). The cover concept depicts a leggy office
worker making copies - and was inspired by one of Chromeo's favorite
albums: Robert Palmer's 1975 album, Pressure Drop. The images being spat out by the copier are, of course, of P-Thugg (Patrick Gemayel) and Dave 1 (David Macklovitch).
And far be it from being sexist, here's a guy plastered in post-it notes, from the soundtrack for the 1999 comedy Office Space. The film centers around ordinary disgruntled office workers at an IT firm and the soundtrack includes such tracks as Get Off My Elevator (Kool Keith), Big Boss Man (Junior Reid) and All that Meat and No Potatoes (Louis Armstrong).
