Here’s my entry for the Great Request Raffle. The request I got was: “I have a number of songs about Friday, Saturday, and Monday. Even one song about Tuesday. I'm wondering if anyone has something to say about Wednesday, Thursday, or Sunday.”

I wrote a song about Sunday many years ago, so I knew I had that in my back pocket if I couldn’t come up with anything. And the only thing I could think of for Thursday was that when I was younger, Thursday was TV night, and a song about Cheers and Family Ties and The Cosby Show didn’t seem fitting. So I had a whack at Wednesday.

This ended up being about Wednesday being far enough from the past weekend to let go of whatever went wrong, and close enough to the following weekend to start making plans.

This is fantastic! It's a clever way to tackle a Wednesday and pretty, too. I'm putting this in my regular rotation.

Also, I don't know how the original requester feels about country, but Kris Kristofferson & Johnny Cash but do great versions of Sunday Mornin' Coming Down.

Man, that's lovely. Great textures. It's a tiny detail, but I really love the little "answer" synth in the choruses.

Nice work!

This is so lovely! What a sweet song. I bet the requestor is dead chuffed :)
