Hump day just sits there awkwardly in the middle of the week. It's neither the beginning or ending of anything. It is a day of stasis, and that's reflected in the small handful of songs that musicians have bothered to write about the day. Tori Amos tackles a relationship that's treading water in her 'Wednesday.' Lisa Loeb explores similar territory with a little more resolve in 'Waiting for Wednesday.'
The Guess Who sing something about ladder eyes and crawling through gardens that we don't really understand in 'A Wednesday in Your Garden.' The Weakerthans take on the stasis of an entire life in 'Wellington's Wednesdays,' with lyrics that evoke aimlessness, meaninglessness and loneliness. The narrator of Simon and Garfunkel's (pictured above) 'Wednesday Morning 3 AM' is trapped between two very different worlds as he enjoys one final night with his young love before going on the lam. So really, that one is more like a Tuesday.
