Sunday Playlist


Few days of the week have had more songs written about them. A day of rest and contemplation for some, a rugged morning after a night (or two) of excesses, a time to praise, Sunday is many things to many people and we thought we'd offer you a dozen cherry compositions to soundtrack your Sunday this week.

We kick it off a little woozy with Phosphorescent diving to the heart of Kris Kristofferson's immortal "Sunday Morning Coming Down," followed by Morrissey's mope anthem "Everyday Is Like Sunday." Then, we have Marianne Faithful doing one of Billie Holiday's signature tunes, "Gloomy Sunday," before Ireland's Luka Bloom brings us into a happier "Sunday." The Young Rascals get us "Groovin'" on a Sunday afternoon next followed by Frank Sinatra's "Sunday." Next, The Velvet Underground warm up our "Sunday Morning" before VU admirer Beck ushers in some "Sunday Sun." This is followed by a deep album cut by House of Freaks, which ushers in the final rush of Blur's "Sunday Sunday," Joe Jackson's "Sunday Papers" and finally Finley Quaye's Bob Marley variation "Sunday Shining."

Pour yourself a fresh cup of coffee, unfold the newspaper (or bring up your web info source o' choice) and let us swing 'n' sway you into the day. May it be a sweet one for you and yours!
