All Days of the Week in Song Titles
How I love songs of the 60s to 80s! I was born in early 70s and I still play these songs until now and how they made my memories drift back during my childhood years up to adolescent years.
I still have my large collection of cds now-- most are albums during these eras. Among my favorites are the classic rock, folk rock and country, and progressive rock such as Pink Floyd, The Jefferson Airplane, Led Zeppelin, Beatles, U2, Lynnyrd Skynnyrd, and many more.
In this hub, I list one example of song that has the name of days in the week.
