Rock/Pop Songs About Wednesday or Thursday

Friday through Monday get plenty of attention from songwriters, so much that I don't need to bother with examples. And the Moody Blues came through for Tuesday with "Tuesday Afternoon" off the Days of Future Passed album.

But if there are songs about Wednesday or Thursday, I've missed them.

We're not counting passing references, of course: "Tuesday, Wednesday, break my heart, Thursday doesn't even start" doesn't make "It's Friday, I'm in Love" a song about Wednesday or Thursday.

So are there any songs out there where Wednesday or Thursday is the focus of the song? I know you guys can come through for me, if there are any out there.

Mind you, I used to be pretty baffled by the lack of Thursday songs myself:

A local band active here in the 90s had a song about Wednesday Addamsódoes that count?

(If anyone's curious, it can be listened to here on their myspace page.)

"Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting" by Charles Mingus.
This song rocks. It's jazz for people who don't like jazz... Really it's R&B. either way, a great song.

There are several songs called "Wednesday's Child"; I remember the one by Matt Monro from my childhood.

One of Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice's first songs to be recorded was "Probably On Thursday" by Ross Hannaman.

"Tell me where a weatherman should start,
When he's miles from his sunshine...
Promise you the warmest winter fire,
When outside its freezing cold...
Promise you the bluest summer sky,
It'll shine just for you...

And it'll be the outlook for Thursday,
You're guess is good as mine!"
