Sunday Songs

Sunday Noises - Califone
A really sparse, yet atmospheric track by the alt-county cut-and-paste masters. Off last year's stupendous Roots & Crowns

Tell Me On A Sunday - The Mountain Goats
An older, awesomely lo-fi track that articulates how and when the inevitable break-up should take place.

Everyday is Like Sunday - Morrissey
You probably know this one. An anthem for anyone that's every been counting down the days to the apocalypse. All together now - Come Armaggeddon, COME

Every Day Feels Like Sunday - Of Montreal
Of Montreal's Sunday is nothing like Morrissey's. It is *gasp* happy!

Sunday Morning - Velvet Underground
The Ultimate hangover anthem. A dreamy soundtrack to accompany that "feeling we don't want to know."

Gloomy Sunday - Bjork
Björk takes on the Billie Holiday classic.

EDIT: A bonus song from June!
Sundays - Lucinda Williams
When you just can't seem to make it through Sunday, this sparse, twangy tune will help you feel even more depressed.
