SONGS ABOUT SUNDAY
The Smiths' frontman's Everyday is Like Sunday (1988) is typically bleak, reportedly cribbed from Nevil Shute's On the Beach, a novel about the end of the world taking place in Melbourne.
The actor/musician's Sunday Morning Coming Down (1969) is perhaps the epitome of a country song: it has booze, hangovers, loneliness and existential angst … and Johnny Cash covered it.
Joe's 1979 song Sunday Papers mentions gay politicians, new sex positions, the bishop, the actress and the stains on the mattress. Unrelated: don't forget to pick up tomorrow's Sunday Mail.
Bono's politicisation came to light in 1983 with Sunday Bloody Sunday, about the 1972 incident in Derry, Northern Ireland when British troops opened fire on activists at the height of The Troubles.
In 1975's Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon, Freddy Mercury comes down from a week of working, bicycling, painting, waltzing and visiting the zoo by flopping on the couch for a well-earned rest.
