SONG OF THE DAY - "Every Day is Like Sunday"
“'Everyday Is Like Sunday' is, to me, a masterful piece of prose," noted Pretenders frontwoman Chrissie Hynde of the Morrissey classic a few years before her band cut its own version of the song. We couldn't agree more, though the literate lyrics are but one of the track's charms. The second single from Morrissey's solo debut VIVA HATE made the Top 10 on the U.K. chart, buoyed by the performer's inimitable vocals and evocative orchestration by co-writer and former Smiths producer Stephen Street. Thirty years old this year, “'Everyday Is Like Sunday” offers a mix of exuberance and melancholy that has timeless appeal (it even popped up in the recent Marvel Studios film Ant-Man And The Wasp), and that makes it our Song of the Day.
