This Allegro Energico is the first track of the sixth movement – entitled “Work” – of Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Oratorio, released in 1991.

V: WORK. Mary Dee’s office. She runs a hectic business staffed entirely by women. Mary Dee busies among the computers and fax machines, issuing orders as her girls lapse their concentration to fantasize of love. Meanwhile at Shanty’s office – where his rank does not match Mary Dee’s success – he is cajoled by colleagues to work less and play more. As one colleague, Mr. Dingle, tempts Shanty to slip off to the pub, at home Mary Dee indicates that she is pregnant.
