Friday On My Mind: Friday Songs

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Friday's child "is loving and giving." I wonder if a statistically disproportionate number of music bloggers were born on Friday. I should do a study...

Friday was of course named for that lovable scamp Fry from the television program Futurama. How he earned this honour I don't know but I asume it involved some sort of wacky time-traveling misadventure. I'm not surprised that it isn't spelled Fryday because spellings often change through the years. I am a tad puzzled as to why Wikipedia gives the credit to some love goddess named Frige. They expect us to believe that at some point people might have said, "Thank God it's Frigeday" (oh, okay, Frigedaeg) without smirking? Whatever, Wikipedia. Incidentally, if this was somehow once true, it abbreviates to the same name of a restaurant chain I don't go to that features "standard American cuisine, bar food, and alcoholic beverages." Sounds delightful, and I do feel as though I may be missing out, but you can't have everything.

Lastly, pre-music, if you don't know what kind of child you are, you can quickly find out here and find out the alleged meaning here.

And now, on to the music... a fairly eclectic mix today...

Nooooo! I mean, thank you for letting me know. Sorry about that. I thought I checked everything, but apparently not. I'll fix that right now. (working on Saturday's songs now. Definitely will get those links right...)

Okay, it's working now... that "acoustic remix" BTW is really the same as the MTV Unplugged track, so I (thought I) deleted that link. I wanted to label it correctly before I posted it. Anyhoo, sorry 'bout that...

Oh, and I was born on a Friday too, drumman. :)
