    Favorite work week drudgery/weekend freedom songs

    What are some of your favorite songs that refer in some way to the drudgery of the work week and/or the freedom of the weekend either in a positive or cyncial way? I'll start it off with a few I like.

    "Friday" - Joe Jackson
    "Seven Day Weekend" - Elvis Costello & Jimmy Cliff
    "The Weekend's Too Short" -  Graham Parker
    "Friday On My Mind" - The Easybeats
    "Weekend" - Eddie Cochran

    Anyone who says "Working for the Weekend" by Loverboy is looking for a fight!

    What's up David?

    Hey Jess, welcome back to work week drudgery. I took a vacation the second week of June and I'm still not adjusted to being back at work. You sure know how to live with all those vacations you take.

    I've kind of slowed down on my posting since my vacation too, so I though I'd give it a shot here with a new topic and see if it gets anywhere. With you and Zil both in action now, the music forum should be more lively. I haven't really been inspired to post much lately.

    All is good my friend and now that summer is here - it's all about RnR and chicks. Oh right, there is that baseball rivalry as well.

    How r you doing? Do you do anything special on your vacation?

    My vacations are very low key compared to yours. My wife can't tolerate hot weather so we will never go to any exotic tropical locations. We just spent part of the week in a peaceful setting in a log cabin in northern Vermont. But don't be mistaken, this log cabin was fully equipped with a full kitchen and a Jacuzzi. My wife is also not into roughing it at all. We like to get away to quiet places where there aren't many people but there is nice scenery with mountains. My wife especially needs a change of locale just to get her mind off all the annoyances of her job.

    5 O'Clock World- The Vogues , later covered brilliantly by a very under-rated and under appreciated figure from the so-called alternative era....Julian Cope.

    (If you like David Bowie, Peter Murphy ( Bauhaus) and Iggy Pop and you have never listened to Julian Cope , I think you would like his style.)

    Also:

    'Welcome to the Working Week'-Elvis Costello

    I think 'Summertime Blues' by Eddie Cochrane also qualifies as it fits the theme of having to work instead of having fun...although not directly mentioning the weekend could disqualify it from contention.

    'Bang on the Drum All Day'- Todd Rundgren...this was an FM staple that was always played at 5 O'Clock on Friday afternoons by one of the local Providence or Boston rock radio stations.

    Re: Favorite work week drudgery/weekend freedom songs

    There are some great picks here. I would add:

    On the Beach -- Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes
    Party 'til the End of the Night -- Warren Zevon
    Get on with the Show -- Van Morrison

    and oddly, also, Stop Drinking -- Van Morrison


    It's already been mentioned, but I think it was WBCN that used to always play Joe Jackson's Friday -- which is the single, quintessential weekend song -- every Friday at five o'clock.

    I'm pretty sure Ken Shelton played it after the Friday midday countdown show every week.  Definitely my choice for this category.

    Weekend freedom?  The Doors can do the trick quite nicely; particularly live performances, one has come up after night out, etc.....
