Your Weekly, Sunday Interlude: “Come Monday”

The first time I ever heard this song was decades after its 1974 release. It came on the radio right when I was breaking up with a guy who left for Labor Day weekend to clear his head. Needless to say the words in the song made me weep. It was one of those times when you think a song was written just for you and for this very moment. I still love the song. Him, not so much.

Jimmy Buffett’s “Come Monday” has a bittersweet melody with the longing lyrics to match. The Parrot Heads will appreciate Buffett’s intro describing the making of his video. Come Monday, it’ll be all right. Happy Labor Day weekend!
