Song Mix Sundays #7: MTWTFSS
March 6, 2011 § Leave a comment
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday.
This week’s mix features seven songs from my library, one for each day of the week from Tegan and Sara on Monday to Augustana on Sunday. Make your week a little bit indie, a little bit pop, a little bit alt rock, and a little bit shoegaze with a different feel for each day from the following tracks.
1. Monday, Monday, Monday – Tegan and Sara, If It Was You (2002) “Monday, Monday, Monday / Your house or mine / I don’t really care about it any more…” [download]
2. Tuesday Morning – Michelle Branch, Hotel Paper (2003) “Tuesday morning in the dark / I was finding out who I was…” Michelle Branch was the first non-embarrassing-to-my-peers artist I became a fan of in middle/high school. I’m still a fan and can’t wait for her new solo album that she’s recording right now. I always come back to this song when I’m feeling angstily introspective. [download]
3. Wednesday – Tori Amos, Scarlet’s Walk (2002) “Just a hang-up call / And the quiet breathing of our Persian we call Cajun on a Wednesday…” [download]
4. Thursday – The Futureheads, News and Tributes (2006) “You should feel like it’s all okay / But every day still feels like a Thursday…” [download]
5. Friday Night – Lily Allen, Alright, Still (2006) “Friday night, last orders at the pub / Get in the car and drive to the club / There’s a massive crowd outside so we get into the queue / It’s quarter past 11 now – we won’t get in till quarter to…” A song for those Friday nights when you’re feeling hot, ready to hit the club with attitude, and break some hearts (and egos and noses, too). [download]
6. Come Saturday – The Pains of Being Pure At Heart, The Pains of Being Pure At Heart (2009) “Come Saturday you’ll come to stay / You’ll come sway in my arms / Who cares if there’s a party somewhere / We’re gonna stay in…” [download]
7. Sunday Best – Augustana, All the Stars and Boulevards (2005) “When she’s sleeping on the sofa / When she’s laying in her Sunday best / When she’s turning over Friday / I could swear I’m sleeping less and less…” [download]
