Here we will look at five songs with Tuesday in the title.
Way back in 2009 an article was published entitled: From Monday To Sunday: A Song A Day. The article looks at one song for every day of the week! It was always my intention to go back to that subject and explore it more deeply. So better late than never, here are five songs with Tuesday in the title.
1. Tuesday Morning – Pogues
The chart career of the Pogues isn’t as good as one might think (with the exception of one song). They scored two top 10 hits, firstly when they teamed up with the Dubliners in the Spring of 1987 for the song The Irish Rover, and secondly (and most famously) with Fairytale Of New York later on that same year. The latter of those two songs seems to hit the top ten in the UK charts ever single year at Christmas time due to download sales. Anyway, the only other song that the Pogues managed to take in to the top 20 in the UK charts was Tuesday Morning, which hit a peak of number 18 in August 1993.
2. Ruby Tuesday – Rolling Stones
The Rolling Stones released Ruby Tuesday as a double A-Side with the song Let’s Spend The Night Together, reaching a peak of number 3 in January 1967. The song was later covered by Melanie who took her version to 9 in 1970. Many years later, in 1993, Rod Stewart took his cover version to a peak of number 11 in the UK charts.
3. Tuesday Afternoon – Moody Blues
This song, written by Moody Blues member Justin Hayward, first appeared on their 1967 album Days Of Future Passed. The following year it was released as a single, but failed to chart in the UK although it did climb to a peak of number 24 in the US.
4. Sweet Tuesday Morning – Badfinger
Badfinger had their first UK chart hit with their version of the Paul McCartney penned song Come And Get It. It reached a peak of number4 in early 1970. A year later they hit a peak of number 5 with the song No Matter What. A year after that they had their third and final chart hit with the number 10 hit Day After Day. The song Sweet Tuesday Morning appeared on their third studio album Straight Up.
5. Tuesday’s Gone – Lynyrd Skynyrd
Tuesday’s Gone was featured on the debut album from Lynyrd Skynyrd. As a point of interest it has been covered by acts as diverse as Metallica and Hank Williams JR.
