So here we are at Sunday. Our seventh day in the Days of the challenge my dad launched at me one week ago today.
Now Sunday, like Saturday, had a number of songs I could have chosen.
But so many of them on closer listen were really depressing.
And well, it’s Christmas! So I felt I couldn’t get too gloomy.
So where did I land?
Iggy Pop’s Sunday, from his Post Pop Depression album released in March 2016.
Yup. 2016. This is about as current as I get on the blog.
It’s Iggy Pop’s 17th studio album and produced by Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age.
One article I read described this song as “a gift that we didn’t even know we wanted.”
So Merry Christmas!
A short sample:
The key to everything
I crawl for Sunday
When I don’t have to move
Caught up in dreams, untangled one day
Where I don’t have to prove
The days roll on and finally Sunday
A Sunday afternoon
I’ve got it all
And so what now?
I love Sundays. It’s the one day I get to sleep in. So I really DO crawl for Sunday. The one day where I don’t really have to move.
It felt pretty perfect.
But it being Christmas and all, I Googled Christmas AND Sunday.
And the Internet didn’t let me down.
Here’s the 12 Days of Christmas, a 2006 cover of said classic performed by the band Taking Back Sunday.
And with that – take back YOUR Sunday. Have a wonderful day and a very Merry Christmas!
