It’s Black Friday, another date on the commercial calendar that probably doesn’t mean much to many people reading.
It’s the day after Thanksgiving Day, when many start their Christmas shopping and retailers slash prices in order to tempt shoppers through their doors. Because after a day of being thankful for what you have, it seems many of us want nothing more than to be rewarded for pushing other people out of our way in pursuit of having more, more, more.
But let’s forget all that and instead have some black songs to wrap up another week, November’s last. Here’s Roy Wood before he was in Wizzard and wishing it could be Christmas every day (which you’ll soon be likely to hear every day, whether you like it or not).
And here are five more to start you off. Sing along if you want to.
– ‘Baby’s In Black’, The Beatles
– ‘Black Dog On My Shoulder’, Manic Street Preachers
– ‘Black Velvet’, Alannah Myles
– ‘Black Betty’, Ram Jam
– ‘Black-Eyed Boy’, Texas
Have a good weekend, everyone. Don’t push anyone too hard, for goodness sake.
