To some, it's a holy day. To others, it's just kind of a bummer. Sunday mornings might be 'Easy' in the parlance of the Commodores and Faith No More, but the rest of the day tends to get bogged down in the dread of the impending work week. Moby, Frank Sinatra, Bloc Party, Nick Drake, the Cranberries, David Bowie and Sonic Youth all have songs named 'Sunday.' Maroon 5, K-OS, the Velvet Underground and No Doubt all have tunes about 'Sunday Morning.' For some inexplicable reason, Counting Crows wrote two numbers on the subject -- 'Sunday Morning LA' and 'On Almost Any Sunday Morning.'
When it comes down to it, though, you really have two musical choices to help you through your Sunday blues: you can either try to gain some perspective by reminding yourself that the looming spectre of another Monday isn't nearly as bad as living through the Troubles in Northern Ireland and listen to U2's (pictured above) song about the titular massacre, 'Sunday Bloody Sunday.' Or you can prepare for an existentialist week by moping along with Morrissey's 'Everyday Is Like Sunday.'
