A Toast to Friday: The Hung Ups

"I've been hungover before."

“I’ve been hungover before.”

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.

A Toast to Friday with Folk Hogan

We’re going to try something different here at Incognito HQ. You’re finishing up your work week and you’re ready to forget all about the office and all the crummy things you have to do. What better way to forget all that stuff than with a drinking song? That’s right. Every week, we’re going to introduce a drinking song to get you into proper weekend mode. We’re going to kick this off with a band from Salt Lake City (yes, a band from Salt Lake City doing songs about drinking). This is the perfect song for a Friday because most bars become a march of drunkards after 5:00 on a Friday. And so, without further ado, let’s get this weekend started with Folk Hogan.
