Next meeting – 9th September

August 29, 2013 1 comment

It’s been a while since we had a themed night. The topic for the next meeting is Days Of The Week. Here are some ideas to get started:

I DON’T LIKE MONDAYS – Boomtown Rats.  Forgotten the finer points? Check out the original. Richard G’s words and uke chords here.

BLUE MONDAY – Fats Domino. Here’s how it goes. Richard G has sadly failed us on this one. I found the words and chords courtesy of Chordie. I’ll do one that will fit on one page rather than print this one out.

RUBY TUESDAY – Rolling Stones. YouTube original including the lyrics is here. And Richard G has words and chords. The ever-impressive Ken Middleton does a particularly good uke version.

TUESDAY MORNING – Pogues. I heard this for the first time just now and it’s already stuck in my head. Listen to it with lyrics here. Chordie has a useless version of the words and chords. I’ll do a more better proper one and perhaps we can see what can be made of it. Maybe somebody already knows it.

Wednesday… all right, I admit I’m a bit stuck for Wednesday. There are songs, of course, none of which I know except for Wednesday In Your Garden (Guess Who) and Wednesday Morning 3 a.m. by Simon and Garfunkel, which doesn’t actually mention Wednesday at all. Does it matter? Probably not. I’ll stop havering and leave Wednesday open to suggestion…

… ditto Thursday and Friday…

ALMOST SATURDAY NIGHT – John Fogerty. I’m more familiar with the Dave Edmunds version.  Here is Fogerty and here are the lyrics and chords at Chordie.

SATURDAY NIGHT AT THE MOVIES – Drifters. Check out the original with the lyrics. There are various versions of the chords and lyrics, one of which can be found here.

SUNDAY GIRL – Blondie. Original with lyrics here and the chords are at Chordie.

SUNDAY’S BEST – Elvis Costello. From the excellent 1979 album Armed Forces. Listen to the song on YouTube and get the words and chords from Chordie.

Some more possibilities:

Monday morning – Fleetwood Mac

Drive in Saturday (David Bowie)

Lazy Sunday (Small Faces)

Friday (J J Cale). Only one chord.

I have printed or will print:

I Don’t Like Mondays

Blue Monday

Ruby Tuesday

Tuesday morning


Sunday Girl

Don’t forget to add and/or bring along your own suggestions!
