Deep Cuts: The Rock Week

My mother was legendary for knowing a song about anything.  The woman was a musical encyclopedia.  “Hey, Larry has cancer.”  “Ohhhhhh cancer cancer / not for dancers….”

Now I’m that guy.  My kids will mistakenly utter a keyword and much to their dismay I’m off on a poorly warbled earworm.  Granted, my repertoire doesn’t go back to Busby Berkeley, but a comment like “Relax!” will get them a few minutes of Frankie Goes To Hollywood.

Anyway, I recently noticed that I tend to warble the day of the week when it comes to my attention.    Here’s a playlist of songs for each day of the week, but there are lots of options.  What’s your definitive rock week?  I’m listening.

“The Monday Troop,” Gary Numan/Tubeway Army

“Tuesday’s Gone,” Metallica

“Wednesday Week,” The Undertones

“Thursday’s Child,” David Bowie

“Fridays Angels,” Generation X

“Sunless Saturday,” Fishbone

“Naked Sunday,” Stone Temple Pilots

** Super Exclusive Top Secret Hidden Bonus Track **

“Welcome To The Working Week,” Elvis Costello

  1. Oh, your week is so much better than mine! I made a weekday playlist at some point, but it is pretty cheesy. Really.

    Manic Monday – The Bangles
    Ruby Tuesday – Rolling Stone
    Wednesday Morning 3am – Simon and Garfunkel
    Probably on Thursday – Sarah Brightman
    Friday Night – Darkness
    Saturday Night – Bay City Rollers
    Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon – Queen
