I also asked for some suggestions for some new Top Fives and Jenna! delivered the goods with a few classics. So since it’s almost Friday as I write this I thought we’d do My Top Five End of Working Week Songs. The songs can be about the weekend or getting paid or freedom or just make you feel good after a hard week of toil. No rules! Here’s my five what are yours?

5. Vampire Weekend, A-Punk

4. BSS, Major Label Debut (fast)

3. Art Brut, Good Weekend

2. Easybeats, Friday on My Mind

1. The Cure, Friday I’m in Love

UPDATE: I’ve got some free tickets for Little Wings, in Whelans next week. All you gotta do is head over to Dublin Metblogs!

  2. 1. Living for the Weekend – Hard Fi
    2. Friday I’m in Love – The Cure

    As it’s Monday I’m too depressed to pick more than 2 songs, I may revert back later in the weekend with some snappy Sinbad-esque material

  3. Woo! Thanks for this! Here goes it…my favorite tunes for after work actually don’t really involve names with “Friday” or “Weekend” in them…but they just make you want to dance about like crazy.

    The Ramones – Let’s Dance.
    The Cure – Friday, I’m in Love.
    The Easybeats – Friday On My Mind.
    Snap – Rhythm is a Dancer.
    Billy Ocean – Caribbean Queen.

  9. OK the weekend is getting nearer so I’m caving in with 3 more:

    Bachelorette by Bjork. Performed by the Maynooth Guitar Orchestra at the NCG last night, great show, great tune.

    Need Your Lovin’ Tonight by Queen. From The Game album, this is the first album they abandoned their “No Syths” vow, although this tune has a great little kick to it.

    All Revved Up with No Place to Go by Meat Loaf. A great tune about wanting to get some action on the weekend. Simple really!

  10. Long Line of Cars – Cake

    Blankest Year – Nada Surf
    The song starts, “Oh fuck it, I’m gonna have a party”. How subtle.

    Having an Average Weekend – Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet
    For those Canadians out there, this is the theme song from Kids in the Hall.

    I Got Drunk – Uncle Tupelo
    More subtle still

    Saturday – The Judybats

    I Need Better Friends – Cracker

  13. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time
    and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.

    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog
    and I look forward to your new updates.
