Sunday morning I woke up with the U2 song "Sunday Bloody Sunday" bouncing around in my head. At least this time I knew why that song had come to mind because, well, it was Sunday. That got me to thinking that there's probably a song for each day of the week.
I hopped onto the internet and found a website called Word In A Song Title All In A Year that had a massive list of song titles by day, months, seasons, years and more. I perused this list after I had written down some of the obvious weekday songs that I had already thought of. This list came in pretty handy for a couple of the days, like Wednesday and Thursday. You might have come up with other songs than what I thought of and that's good. If you've got some weekday-titled favorites please drop me a line at email@example.com and let me know what they are. I might use them in another weekday song title rundown in the future.
I hope you enjoy the choices I settled on:
Monday: Fleetwood Mac - Monday Morning
This tune is the first track from their self-titled 1975 release, which was also their first No. 1 U.S. Billboard 200 album.
Tuesday: Moody Blues - Tuesday Afternoon
This single peaked at No. 24 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.
Wednesday: America - Wednesday Morning
This single came from their 14th studio album, Human Nature, in 1998.
Thursday: David Bowie - Thursday's Child
From the album Hours, this single did not chart in the U.S. but scored him a No. 16 on the UK Singles chart.
Friday: Black Crowes - Good Friday
In 1996 they released their fourth studio album, Three Snakes and One Charm. This single is the second track on that release and it topped out at No. 3 on the U.S. Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.
Saturday: Elton John - Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting
This is one of his most successful songs and has been covered by a variety of artists such as W.A.S.P., Nickelback, Queen, The Who and others.
Sunday: U2 - Sunday Bloody Sunday
The video for this song is by far my favorite U2 video. Filmed at Red Rocks, it captures the mesmerizing essence of U2 at the time.
