The Day Today

Today is Thursday.

It turns out that Thursday is not a day of the week which has inspired many songs.

Which is a shame, as I quite like Thursdays. You’ve got over the hump of the week (Wednesday) and Friday and the weekend is in sight. Give me Thursday over Tuesday any…erm…day of the week.

Anyway, here’s a song I found by popular Trivial Pursuit (Baby Boomer edition) answer, Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich:

Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich – Mrs Thursday

There’s something about that sleeve which made me hope that Mrs Thursday might turn out to be somehow linked to Mrs Jones. You know Mrs Jones, right? No, not she of Billy Paul’s Me & Mrs Jones fame. I mean the Mrs Jones name-checked in one of the finest rhyming couplets ever commited to vinyl:

Here we all are, sitting in rainbow

“Cor blimey, hello Mrs Jones! How’s your Bert’s lumbago?”

No points for knowing what I’m banging on about.

Anyway, she isn’t, so that’s that.

More soon.
