Songs For Each Day of the Week

Updated on February 25, 2014

Songs to Get You Through Each Day of The Week

Did you know that there are songs written about each day of the week and almost every emotion for that day?

Feeling blue on Monday morning? No problem, there is a song for that. Need a great song for a Saturday night party? There is a song for that too!

Day of the week themed songs are great because they make the day a little more special and can lift your spirits no matter how your day is going. I love weekday songs because I love to sing them throughout the day to my ten year old daughter to make her smile, to remind her that this is just one day of the week and tomorrow is a whole new song. Try out some of the songs below and I can almost guarantee you will find a few new ones that might just make you smile and have you singing about this day.

Five Great Sunday Songs

Sunday is often described as a day of rest which is not usually the case for most of us who refer to it more as the day to get everything done before the crazy new work week begins. What is true for all though is that Sunday falls between Saturday and Monday and the following are some great songs to get you through the day no matter how you choose to spend yours.

# 1 Sunday Bloody Sunday By U2

Often referred to as a song of peace because lead singer Bono of the rock band U2 would wave a white flag while performing the song "Sunday Bloody Sunday", this song received great airplay and shot up the Billboard charts around the world. The lyrics are meant to stop the violence of protests and Bono has been known to be a humanitarian. It has been said that the song was written because of some sort of massacre that he saw a news report on and in turn tried to do something positive to ignite peace.

# 2 Gloomy Sunday By Sarah Mclachlan

By far one of the most beautiful and sad songs I have ever heard is the song titled "Gloomy Sunday" by Sarah McLachlan. This song has been performed by a variety of other artists in the past including Lady Day, Billie Holiday, Heather Nova and Bjork but I think a even more interesting fact is that some radio stations would not even play this song because they said it was too sad and gave it a title of a suicide song. Because of this many committed suicide while listening to this song which can definitely make you feel very sad. The song is beautiful and with the right voice such as Sarah McLachlan's it can make the strong weep like a baby. The lyrics to me describe a woman who is in a great deal of pain because someone she loves has passed away and she believe the only way to be with them is by taking her own life.

# 3 Sunday Girl By Blondie

The song "Sunday Girl" by Blondie was supposedly inspired by the cat she owned named Sunday Girl. The song is upbeat and has a great hook that will have you inspired to sing along at times. Blondie was known to write and perform whimsical and often funny songs about all sorts of strange things, like many artists she was inspired by her surroundings and was talented enough to have the perfect voice to pull off many Billboard hits with them.

# 4 Raining on Sunday By Keith Urban

The song "Raining on Sunday" by country singer Keith Urban is a romance filled song in which the lyrics describe time running out on his weekend with his girl and then it is back to work on Monday. He is praying for rain so he and his girl can spend the whole day on Sunday hiding out under the covers instead of going out in the rain. This is a romance filled song with great lyrics and great for a lazy Sunday afternoon spent with someone you love.

# 5 Sunday Morning Coming Down By Johnny Cash

If you are looking for the perfect Sunday song after a long night of fun on Saturday then the song "Sunday Morning Coming Down" by legendary country singer Johnny Cash is probably the one to listen to. This ballad is for the hangover felt after a good long weekend of fun and it is actually pretty cheerful and fun to sing along with. The lyrics are perfect for doing exactly as the song title describes coming down from the weekend on Sunday and everyone can relate to a few weekends where you needed to do just that.

# 3 Monday, Monday By the Mamas and the Papas

If you love a good classic rock tune then you will probably also love the song "Monday, Monday" by the group The Mama's And The Papa's. The lyrics tell of how Monday's have always been good for this man and that they are always what he hoped they would be until the Monday that she went away. Now every time Monday mornings roll around you will find him crying about missing his girl.

# 4 I Don't Like Monday's By the Boomtown Rats

A crazy song about Monday's is the song "I Don't Like Monday's" by The Boomtown Rats because it describes a girl who lost her mind on a Monday and went on a shooting spree at a school. The songs lyrics are relatively harmless but in theory speaking of a actual girl who has a pre existing mental illness and mentally lost it on a typical Monday all because she did not like the weekday Monday.

# 5 Monday Morning By Fleetwood Mac

Dreams of warping ahead to Friday is the theme of the song "Monday Morning" by classic rockers Fleetwood Mac because they have traveling on their mind. The song is upbeat and has a decent hook but there really is no good story behind this song compared to the typical good storytelling this group has done in their previous singles but still worth listening to on a Monday.
