Beat the Monday Blues With 3 Songs For the Longest Day of the Week



Has anyone ever told you it "Looks like you have a case of the Monday's!"? Have you ever then wanted to punch them in the face? We don't condone violence (ever!) but Monday is just one of those days that can make you feel like you're trudging through 3 feet of snow uphill on 2 hours of sleep. That's how we sometimes feel at the beginning of the work/school week.

One thing that can always change our moods, though? Music! We asked you what your favorite "Monday" songs are, and here are 3 that are sure to chase your blues away...

3. The Mamas & The Papas - Monday Monday




"Monday, Monday, so good to me / Monday morning, it was all I hoped it would be / But Monday morning, Monday morning couldn't guarantee / That Monday evening, you would still be here with me"

This song may be about somebody's lover leaving them on a Monday, but we can't help but feel comforted by the beautiful harmonies of this quintessential 1960's group. Plus, their song reached #1 on this day in 1966 and today's a Monday! See, good things can happen today!

2. New Order - Blue Monday




"How does it feel / When you treat me like you do / And you've laid your hands upon me / And told me who you are?"

If this song doesn't have you feeling instantly energized and dancing around while you get ready for your day, then you might as well go back to bed.

1. Bruno Mars - The Lazy Song




"Today I don't feel like doing anything / I just wanna lay in my bed / Don't feel like picking up my phone, so leave a message at the tone / 'Cause today I swear I'm not doing anything"

This song doesn't specifically mention "Monday" but when asked for the best Monday song there was an overwhelming request for Bruno Mars's lazy-person anthem. This chill song certainly makes us feel better about not wanting to do anything.
