It's a Monday kind of Tuesday.

I know it's Wednesday, but I was just thinking about "It's a Monday Kind of Tuesday," and the question occurred to me: What day of the week is most frequently sung about?

And if you're planning to say Friday, I hope the song on your mind is "Friday On My Mind."

I'm very fond of "Gloomy Sunday," and maybe it's Sunday.

I'm guessing the answer is Friday, Monday, or Sunday. No way it's Thursday.

Here's another list, albeit with garish, eye-piercing color.

@EM That's some choice old-school web design!

Old school website design, boring as it is, wins over the garish. Now, what about songs that have "weekend" in the title? That would add to the Sat-Sun count.

“Come Monday” – Jimmy Buffett

“Monday, Monday” – Mamas and Papas

Shanna said...

Just another Manic Monday...

Although my guess in Friday.

E.M. Davis said...

It's Sunday. Look at the lists!

Clyde said...

I don't care if Monday's blue,
Tuesday's gray and Wednesday too,
Thursday I don't care about you,
It's Friday, I'm in love...

-- The Cure

Bring on the weekend, baby!

"Saturday Night At The Movies" - inspired by a TV show, no less.

Bob_R said...

Friday on My Mind is a killer pop song and that's a very cool video. Once again YouTube justifies the existence of the internet.

Lem said...

Sunday Morning - Maroon 5

Trooper York said...

Rainy days and Mondays always get me down.

Oh and really skinny people!

Lem said...

Sunday - Nikonn

Beta Rube said...

"Lady Madonna" covers the bases pretty well.

"Monday morning creeping like a nun."

Lem said...

On Sunday - 'Til Tuesday

William said...

@E.M. Davis. Thanks for the lists. Wednesday and Thursday are lustreless days without any kind of brand awareness. Neither day has inspired a great song. They don't even have their own color. How about Fuchsia Wednesday. That would be a good name for a song. Nobody knows what the color fuchsia is, but it sounds kind of sexy.

Whiskey on a Sunday

Sunday Bloody Sunday

@ Lem's 11:12 post Sunday. Who else knows what location that youtube video is portraying.

If you do.....Geek!!

E.M. Davis said...

Blue Monday or The Beach?

@William:

Kramer: What's today?

Newman: It's Thursday.

Kramer: Really? Feels like Tuesday.

Newman: Tuesday has no feel. Monday has a feel, Friday has a feel, Sunday has a feel....

Kramer: I feel Tuesday and Wednesday...

Seinfeld - "The Sniffing Accountant"

DADvocate said...

"Never on a Sunday" hit every day of the week.

urpower said...

The title "Thursday's Child" is pretty common- recently a song by Bowie- based on the nursery rhyme "Monday's Child". "Thursday's child has far to go" is an image of the wanderer or quester. Bowie was born on Wednesday.

The movie "Gloomy Sunday" was excellent.

E.M. Davis said...

Roy-

I was using song titles rather than lyrics, but you may well be correct that Friday is most popular.

Issob Morocco said...

Tuesday's Gone With The Wind;

Joseph said...

Never on a Sunday.

Astro said...

This has inspired me to write a love song called 'Thursdays in Omaha'. It's almost done. I just need a couple words that rhyme with orange and silver.

Popville said...

Ann warns, "No way it's Thursday.", and despite to Roy's lyric counts, Thursday must the the least sung about day.

That said, there's a tune that stands high above the rest, and that's To Claudia On Thursday" the opening cut from Begin, the only lp from the insanely great, criminally unheralded Millennium. One of the all time great pop albums, circa 1968.

Obviously it's Someday
And I will get around to proving that
Someday.
