It’s time once again for our weekly toast to Friday. If you’re just joining us, this is where we present a drinking song to get you into weekend mode. This one is particularly fitting for today because with yesterday being Independence Day here in the States, probably a lot of you are already in weekend mode. Which means there’s a good chance you’re hungover, just like the title of this song.
This song by The Hung Ups begins with the sound of an alarm followed by a guy cracking open his first beer of the day. Now, a lot of people probably want to do that today – even if they have to go to work. You wake up feeling terrible and you take a little hair of the dog to start your day. Then comes the lament that the narrator is hungover (we’ve all been there) followed by the declaration that he is going out again that night. Sound familiar? I thought so.
And what’s the story? You wonder why you continue to abuse yourself this way, but ultimately you do it because you have a good time. And really, what’s another hangover when you’ve been hungover before. If you’re feeling that way this morning, then this song is your anthem. Play it loud. Sing along. And what the hell. Raise your glass and drink some hair of the dog in a toast to Friday. Have a good weekend and be safe.
