I don’t know about you but weekends are what make the rest of the week bearable for me. So…..on a Friday night in North Alabama, “weekend” seems like a good choice for the Friday word of the week. Since a weekend is nothing without Saturday and Sunday I am throwing them in for no extra charge……that is just the kind of guy that I am.
I worked hard on this post and we have some great songs. There is truly something for everyone so I hope you take the time to give them a listen as you kickoff your weekend!
Oh…you want to know my favorites? Be sure to checkout:
- Barry Manilow-Weekend In New England (I know, I know….but this is a great song!)
- Jefferson Airplane-Won’t You Try Saturday Afternoon (from Woodstock)
- Velvet Underground-Sunday Morning (great Lou Reed vocal from 1966)
Tom Rush – Rockport Sunday
Be sure to let me know your favorite weekend songs!
