Loudmouth : Best Of The Boomtown Rats album at
Boomtown Rats', "I Don't Like Mondays"
The Lyrics:
Tell me why I don't like Mondays (3X)
I wanna sho-o-o-o-t the whole day down.
Another fact-based tragic song with an upbeat melody. Based on 16-year-old Brenda Ann Spencer's shooting spree in San Diego. Ironic, since Brenda herself was upbeat (as in remorseless) when she told the authorities "I don't like Mondays. This livens the day."
