A mile and a half on a bus takes a long time
It’s week three of Cap’n Gav’s Theme Time Pirate Radio Show and it’s “Britpop” week! No, wait, it’s “Days of the Week” week. As we said on the show, there seem to be a lot of songs about Monday and a lot about Friday, Saturday and Sunday but there isn’t much love for the middle of the week.
On a personal note, it’s true what I said when we played She Left Me On Friday – both Elmo and Emily split up with me on a Sunday. I know that a lot of people probably wouldn’t mind, thinking that they would throw themselves into their work on the Monday and try and get over it. Unfortunately, I’m the sort of person who copes with these sort of things by getting really drunk, which just means on the Monday you have a hangover and the problem is still there. At least if I spend Friday and Saturday drinking, I can spend Sunday in bed, letting my liver recover.
Songs that just missed out – The Beatles: I Am The Walrus (mentions “stupid bloody Tuesday”) and Simon & Garfunkel: Wednesday Morning, 3AM. We also kept aside a few Saturday and Sunday songs in case we ever do “Weekends” as a theme.
Here’s the Spotify playlist
Next week’s theme is “Dancing” – 7pm on Thursday on NG Digital
