Let’s get back to normality, whatever that is, with some random nonsense, to help, I hope, blow some cobwebs away. On this ‘Tuesday Afternoon’, how about songs with a day in the title or lyric? I wonder if there are any which mention all seven days.
Alternatively, a song about days will do – like this one, a cover of The Kinks’ well-known 1968 hit single, by Kirsty MacColl.
You can opt for ‘Days of Wine and Roses’ (Andy Williams) or ‘Days of Pearly Spencer’ (David McWilliams), I don’t mind. ‘These Days’ (Nico), ‘Yellow Days’ (Frank Sinatra), ‘Strange Days’ (The Doors). Or a single day: ‘A Day in the Life’ (The Beatles), ‘Oh Happy Day’ (The Edwin Hawkins Singers), ‘Perfect Day’ (Lou Reed).
Whatever day or however many of them there are in your song selections, I hope you’re having a pleasant and peaceful to-day.
Perhaps we could even attempt our very own 30-Day Song Challenge (just not over 30 consecutive days; I don’t have the stamina or patience, I expect, for that). What do you think? That is, if you haven’t already been bored rigid by its plague-like infection of social networking sites. Suggestions for a custom list exclusive to our blog and ‘Irregular’ mindset are most welcome. The original list of teasers, should you wish to join in belatedly, can be found here.
The chatroom will be open tomorrow from 3pm (UK).
