Song of The Day #031

"Friday Night" by The Darkness

Is there any finer song that professes young love while recounting various after-school activities? No. Not that I've heard at least. The Darkness' "Friday Night" was a favorite of mine ca. 2004, and, looking back on it, I applaud my twelve-year old self's discerning tastes. Obviously The Darkness are (were) ridiculous, but their brand of ridiculousness was one that was calculated to be fun, lewd and, ultimately, inspiring. Yes: inspiring. In this song, Justin Hawkins sings about his busy schedule--archery, needlework, bridge club, etc.--and how he found time, during dancing class, to fall in love with a girl who may or may not have even known he existed. Inspiring indeed.
