Tuesday is a lesser evil -- the weekend is still a distant oasis, but at least Monday is finally behind us. For musicians, however, Tuesday is apparently the best day to contemplate broken relationships. Five for Fighting and Samantha Ronson and the Undertakers both have love-gone-wrong songs named after the day. Stevie Wonder has 'Tuesday Heartbreak.' The Counting Crows think about a girl from their past in 'On a Tuesday in Amsterdam Long Ago.' Lynyrd Skynyrd sing about both the day and their baby being gone in the wind in 'Tuesday's Gone,' a song that was later covered by Metallica.
Even the most famous Tuesday song of all, 'Ruby Tuesday' by the Rolling Stones (pictured above) is about a distant and elusive woman. In his autobiography, 'Life,' Keith Richards says he wrote the song about his girlfriend, Linda Keith, who had recently left him for Jimi Hendrix and Jimi's Spanish castle full of drugs.
