Thursday is the new Friday? If you prescribe to this theory you're probably an alcoholic or possibly just someone who hates the kind of people who go out in their best tracksuit of a Friday evening. Hell, if you're anything like me, you probably just hate people and go out on a Thursday morning when the pubs are empty. Whichever it is, there is not a song that we could find or think of which soundtracks your view of the new party day that is today, so clearly today is an uninspiring rehearsal day for most bands.
Thursday is a day of hope and relief because you're over the hump and can plan for the weekend based on weather forecasts. DiS likes to think of Thursday as the day before festivals start (gives me goosebumps to think of Reading '98, picking up my GCSE results and a case of beer, then drinking with my friends until the first band went on!) or the night most of the best gigs take place in London.
Thursday of course has a popular emo band named after it and is yet another day that Bowie has put in a song title. Of course, 'Thursday Afternoon' is one of those wondrous must-listen pieces of magic which Mr Eno put together. Is it better than Music for Airports? We can't decide but it's certainly as lush and lovely to drift off to, especially after the odd adventure that is 'My Sister = My Clock' (def not the best introduction to one of the most under-rated bands in the world).
Happy Thursday, enjoy...
