Musicians seem to be divided when it comes to Thursday. 'Thursday Afternoon' gets Rollins Band pretty riled up. The day didn't end so well for the man engaging in extramarital adventures in Morphine's 'Thursday.' And Harry Nilsson dismisses it as a "crazy, lazy day" in '(Thursday) Here's Why I Did Not Get to Work Today.' But there are some musicians who don't mind the penultimate weekday. It's not quite Friday, but it's close enough that you can see the light at the end of the week-long tunnel, and some songs celebrate that promise.
'Mellow Yellow' folkster Donovan sings about new love in 'Jersey Thursday.' David Bowie (pictured above) experiences a rare and new glimpse of hope in 'Thursday's Child.' But the day's biggest fan is the Weeknd, with the title track of his second mixtape, 'Thursday.' Taking a page from the Cure's 'Friday I'm in Love,' Weeknd vocalist Abel Tesfaye feels kind of indifferent about his girl most days, but Thursday he's in lust.
