What can we say about Wednesday? Not a lot. Weds feels like a slog. It's the middle of the week, yet it's more like the week has half started rather than excitingly half over.
In fact, Wednesday is so lame that the short first paragraph on Wikipedia ends "This day is between Tuesday and Thursday." That's damning with faint praise. Wednesday is often known as 'hump day' and there was only one song which coes to mind where that word is concerned (O HAI BLACK EYED PEAS!).
Oh Wednesday, you are no fun. There aren't many songs written about you that we could find/think of (suggestions welcome!). In fact, Wednesday's are so dull that our boards often fill up with self-referential threads and in tribute to that, the second half of this Drowned in Wednesday playlist features a selection of the tracks we suspect some of our most active users used to pick their DiS-names.
