I began this as a little game and I was shocked at the lack of quality songs about this most celebrated day of the week. I could recall so few, in fact, that I had to Mister Google many of the songs you see listed. I thought country music would make a much better showing with the whole take this job and shove it – weekend’s here – honkey tonk theme that so many songs of this genre espouse. Jimmy Buffet is conspicuously absent as well, unless I’m missing something obvious.
It’s curious that there are many more quality songs about Monday than Friday. I can think of 4 or 5 good tunes right off the top of my head, without even too much thought. It could explain why good art and music often express the artist’s sadness, sorrow, depression, the blues, heartbreak, etc. better than their happy times. We’re a strange mammal indeed.
Happy Friday, everyone!
