This week seemed to drag on forever. I don't know why, it was an ordinary week but it just seemed to be taking its time getting to Friday. Perhaps it was because I was looking forward to going to the Northwest Sportshow, at the Minneapolis Convention Center, which I still have a few tickets left that I'll be giving away this morning along with tickets to the Donnie Smith Bike and Car Show at the St. Paul RiverCentre. Listen between 6-9AM for your chance to win.

The first thought I had when I woke this morning was "Thank God It's Friday," followed by the song "Friday On My Mind" by The Easybeats literally popping into my mind. This got me wondering how many songs contained the word Friday in the title. So after Googling various phrases having to do with songs with Friday in the title, I found a bunch. I then whittled down the list to a few and thought I would share them with you.
