Still from the video Friday Im In Love by The Cure

Friday I’m In Love

Kind of half assed today; the main reason I posted this song is because it was the first one I thought of with Friday in the name. I like it, it’s a silly pop song with a wacky video, but it’s catchy as hell. Robert Smith doesn’t even consider it a real Cure song, and he may be on to something because according to the bass drum, it’s actually by The Cures.

Simon & Garfunkel - A Hazy Shade of Winter

A Hazy Shade Of Winter

This Simon & Garfunkel song was originally released in late 1966, hitting the Top 20 on Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart. It’s a relatively hard track for the duo, better known for a gentler, more hippieish, folky sound. It’s a brilliantly arranged piece of music, the driving beat perfectly complements Paul Simon‘s stellar guitar work. Lyrically, the song is a metaphor for growing older and coping with being unable to fulfill the dreams of youth. About 20 years after its release, it became a signature tune for The Bangles when they covered it for the soundtrack to the film Less Than Zero. It’s also been covered by artists ranging from film composer Hugo Montenegro to goth punk band She Wants Revenge.
