By Rasma RaistersPublished 14 days ago 3 min read

This is a short series of songs written for each day of the week. I began with songs with Monday in the title and progressing through the week we are now up to songs with Sunday in the title and will add the links to each one below as I progress.

Pleasant Valley Sunday” is a song written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King. It was recorded by the American rock group The Monkees in 1967. The recording begins with a well-known guitar intro played by group member Michael Nesmith. The song became one of their most successful singles and is featured on their album Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn, & Jones Ltd. The song charted on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. In February 1986 MTV aired a marathon of The Monkees TV episodes entitled Pleasant Valley Sunday.

Sunday Morning Coming Down” is a song that was written by American country singer, songwriter, and actor Kris Kristofferson. It was recorded in 1969 by American singer and songwriter Ray Stevens. Stevens’ recording charted on the Billboard Hot Country Singles and Billboard Hot 100 charts. The song became a number one hit on the Billboard Country chart when it was recorded by American country singer and songwriter Johnny Cash. His version was taped live at the Ryman Auditorium during a taping of The Johnny Cash Show.

Never on a Sunday” is a song that is known by its original Greek title “Ta Pedia tou Pirea”. This popular song was written by Manos Hatzidakis and originally sung by Melina Mercouri in the film of the same name. The song won the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1960. It was made popular again when the song was recorded by American pop singer Connie Francis. It is featured in the album Connie Francis sings “Never on a Sunday” and Other Title Songs from Motion Pictures. The album was recorded in 1961 with background vocals from Millie Kirkham and The Jordanaires.

Sunday Will Never Be the Same” is a song that was written by Terry Cashman and Gene Pistilli borrowing an interlude from the French carol “Les Anges Dans Nos Campagnes”. It was recorded in 1967 by the American band Spanky and Our Gang and is featured on their self-titled debut album.

Blue Sunday” is not one of their most popular songs but it was recorded by the American rock band The Doors. It shows that the band could create emotionally charged and introspective music. The song evokes a range of emotions while listeners think about the power of love and longing. It came out in 1969.

Sunday Girl” is a song that was recorded by the American new wave band Blondie. It is featured on their 1978 album Parallel Lines. The song was written by guitarist Chris Stein and inspired by Debbie Harry’s cat Sunday Man. The cat had recently run away thus inspiring the “plaintive” nature of the song. It was released as the follow-up single to the band’s number one hit “Heart of Glass”. “Sunday Girl” became the band’s second consecutive number one hit in the country.

Everyday is Like Sunday” is a song featured on the debut solo album Viva Hate by English singer and songwriter Steven Morrissey. It was co-written by Morrissey and former Smiths producer Stephen Street. It became one of his most successful songs. Morrissey was inspired lyrically by Nevil Shute’s On the Beach to lament the drudgery of a seaside town.

Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon” was recorded in 1975 by the British rock band Queen. The song was written by band member Freddie Mercury, who plays the piano and performs all the vocals. It is featured on their album A Night at the Opera.
