Days Of The Week - 'til tuesday



">'til tuesday: Voices Carry

[purchase]

Digging through my music collection, trying to find the next day of the week song, I was having no luck.
Monday had lept out at me so fast, and I've already got something on tap for Wednesday, that I figured the second day of the work-week would be a snap. Not so.
How can there not be a song called "Tuesday"? (note to self: write a song called "Tuesday")
Then I remembered that Michael Hausman, Robert Holmes, Joey Pesce, and Aimee Mann had had a little group known as 'til tuesday back in the 1980s. That little group released a wonderful song, which I'm sure you all know, called "Voices Carry". The title song from the groups debut release (1985), "Voices Carry" was the groups highest charting song, reaching #8 on the U.S. Hot 100.
Like I said, I'm sure you all are quite familiar with this song, but when is the last time you really listened to it? It is, in my opinion, a near-perfect pop song.
And as you're listening, look at the pic of the album cover and try guess which guy is Joey Pesce. (hint: it's not the blonde)

Moody Blues : Tuesday afternoon.
Til Tuesday have recorded a fine "day song" : On Sunday, on the second album.

It looks like I've only got three Tuesday songs on my computer: Ruby Tuesday (Stones), Groovy Tuesday (Smithereens), and Sun Comes Up, It's Tuesday Morning (Cowboy Junkies).

Bring, as PE exhorts, the "noise"!
