No day of the week is more satisfying than Friday. None. Saturdays are carefree, sure, but they often get wasted away in fits of self-attributed (and probably well deserved) laziness. Sundays have Monday lurking annoyingly in the shadows, and are a day of mental preparation for the coming week more than anything.
But a 5pm on a Friday afternoon (or whatever time you happen to leave work) is probably the single most gratifying moment of anyone’s week. It’s cathartic because you worked to get there.
In terms of weekend tunes, I never really liked The Cure. I’ll admit, though, that “Friday I’m in Love” has some zing to it. It’s fun. It’s a good song to start off the weekend’s festivities. But (and I dare anyone to prove otherwise) it pales considerably when held up against the above-posted remix of Ignition by Sir Robert Kelly.
This is his opus. It’s underrated and brilliant the same way Kanye is. It makes you feel like you can fly moreso than any song of his off the Space Jam soundtrack. Listen to it today (perhaps at 5pm) and try not to feel like you have your whole life ahead of you — even if it is only two days.
