JDIZZY's 365 # 99: I Don't Like Mondays

I Don't Like Mondays - The Boomtown Rats (1979)

Sometimes tragedy begets great art. The Shooting Spree of 16-year-old Brenda Ann Spencer in 1979 was one of those times. It somehow lead to the creation of the perfect New Wave Song. Before The Wall, before Live Aid and before Live 8, Sir Bob Geldof was a master storyteller making a tale of pain and suffering into a pop hit with hooks for days. It topped the charts in the UK for four weeks and sticks in the head of anyone who has heard it more than once. Just listen to it twice, I dare you. You'll be singing it for the next couple of years.
