That’s right, not just another manic Monday…

For those who crave music seven days a week, this is a playlist holding a song for every one of them. With the cycle repeated for five weeks. Plus several end-of-week bonuses. And when we’re almost done, there’s still ‘One More Saturday Night.’ Seven days, five ways. Got all that?

Before starting off “the week,” a few day-specific notes from the extensive SMGM research:

  • There are a surprising number of top tracks for Mondays; ‘I Don’t Like Mondays’ just doesn’t hold true.
  • Tuesdays, too, are in extremely strong supply – mornings, evenings, even ‘Tuesday Afternoon.’
  • Wednesday and Thursday options are far more sparse; songwriters of the world please take note and get us some needed mid-week tuneage.
  • A prime Friday tune is the only way to get me to include emo twits like The Cure.
  • Once the cry of ‘Here Comes The Weekend’ arrives there are the expectedly wide variety of outstanding recordings.
  • Cat Stevens, Dave Edmunds, Joe Jackson, and Lynyrd Skynyrd managed to make the list twice; fortunately, Loverboy only once.

So, from ‘Monday Morning’ through ‘Sunday Bloody Sunday’ here’s the definitive, comprehensive 44-song Days-of-the-Week playlist, “Seven Days.”

(in fairness, only The Beatles could possibly promise to be at it for ‘Eight Days a Week’).




And in addition, there’s more on “Extra Days,” 28 more Day tunes that somehow just couldn’t fit onto the main weekly list. Even if ‘Rainy Days and Mondays’ always get you down, there’s still a ‘S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y…Night’ on the way.
