Friday I Got Monday On My Mind: First Day Is The Worst Day

I begin dreading Monday around 11pm on Saturday nights. I don't think I ever see the weekend on the horizon without a sense of existential dream. Of course, not having work the next day, is much much worse. Weekends mean nothing without a break from work. Monday is the death day, we dread it but without it the weekend has no meaning.

I've been wanting tow rite about eternal people who end up completely and totally done with life yet unable to leave it. They lay on the floor for eternity unwilling to do anything, not even lift their heads off the floor. Without Monday that would be a great description of Sunday afternoon.  With that in mind…

1. Monday Monday – The Mamas And The Paps – There is such a deep longing in the backing vocals, the ageless ache of nostalgia and want for a past long gone – A+

2. Rainy Days And Mondays – The Carpenters – Listening to her ache over annunciation is so unbearably sad. The blues – A+

3. Blue Monday – New Order – The sound of a drum machine tapping on your soul – B+

4. Manic Monday – The Bangles – From back in the days when Prince could write like breathing – A

5. Monday Morning In Church – Alan Jackson – "I can't seem to talk to God without yelling any more" -B+

6. I Don't Like Mondays – The Boomtown Rats – Before they had LIVE AID, they had this – A

7. Stormy Monday – The Allman Brothers "Actually, it's a T-Bone Walker song – A

8. Monday Morning – Death Cab For Cuties – A great song off an album I didn't much like – A-

9. Monday Monday Monday – Tegan And Sara – This is an odd band, I think I don't like em till I hear them and then I do like em – B+

10. Monday – Wilco – Crunch country rocker – Wilco – B
