When’s the last time you heard a song about Tuesday?

I ran across this blog in my devotional this morning and it reminded me of how easy it is to lose that New Year mojo.

Last Friday was January 1! What a hopeful and energizing day. But now on January 8 (the second week of the year) your excitement and commitment may be lagging a bit.

Keep the streak alive! Press in on those New Year’s Resolutions.

I think this blog will help you.


The second day getslittle attention. Think about the work week; everybody has an opinion about Mondays—we even write songs about them. For example the following were all top ten hits:

  • Blue Monday Fats Domino (1956)
  • Monday, Monday The Bee Gees (1966)
  • Monday’s Rain The Mamas and Papas (1966)
  • Monday Morning Fleetwood Mac (1975)
  • Rainy Days and Mondays The Carpenters (1971)
  • I Don’t Like Mondays The Boomtown Rats (1979)
  • Blue Monday New Order (1983)
  • New Moon on Monday Duran Duran (1984)
  • Manic Monday The Bangles (1986)
  • Monday Without You Carole King (2001)


There’s dozens more I could add but I’ll mention only one more–it at least gives Monday a little credit (all the others seem to be real downers). Remember the 1976 hit: “Sunday Monday Happy Days” (Happy Days theme song)? Thanks Fonzie.

The point of all this is: When’s the last time you heard a big hit about Tuesday?

Somehow day-two ends…
