Rhino Playlist: Banish the Monday Blues
By the time you read this, Monday will be almost over, but given this particular day of the week and its long, sordid history of being about as bad as days of the week get, we wouldn't in any way be surprised if your so-called "case of the Mondays" is still lingering. While you've still got time to salvage at least a little bit of the day - because, you know, technically the day lasts until 11:59 PM - we thought we'd offer up a playlist to help banish whatever remaining portion of the Monday blues may still be bringing you down. Look at the stuff we've put together: the Housemartins followed by the Beat Farmers, Robyn Hitchcock leading into the Buzzcocks, and Tom Petty side by side with Too Much Joy, and in addition to Guadalcanal Diary taking you to the "Watusi Rodeo," Jason Falkner has a prescription for "Miracle Medicine." All this, and the whole thing ends with the theme to "Happy Days." Now that, dear friends, is a sure-fire cure for the Monday blues, so give it a spin and be sure to bookmark it so that when next Monday rears its ugly head, you can spin it all over again.
