too much typing—since 2003


Mr. Jones takes Monday and Wednesday off

I was amusing myself by creating Winamp playlists featuring songs or artists featuring days of the week, and I noticed that David Bowie's name kept popping up. How many days of the week have been included in Bowie song titles, I wondered...

And so, here's David Bowie's week: as it turns out, he has so far taken off Monday and Wednesday.

"Sunday" (Heathen, 2002)
"Love You Till Tuesday" [single version] (1966 - reissued on The Deram Anthology)
"Thursday's Child" (Hours, 1999)
"Friday on My Mind" (Easybeats cover - Pin-Ups, 1973)
"Drive-In Saturday" (Aladdin Sane, 1973)

"After Today" (use on Sunday or Tuesday as the following day's missing track - Sound + Vision exclusive, 1975)
"I Know It's Gonna Happen One Day" (Morrissey cover - Black Tie, White Noise 1993)
