Music Monday - "Manic Monday" by the Bangles (1986)

Happy Monday!  I'm back in Music Monday mode here.  I've missed talking music with you.

Today's song is "Manic Monday" by the Bangles.  This song, written by Prince, was a hit in 1986.  I always thought the lyrics were perfect for the day:

"It's just another manic Monday
I wish it was Sunday
'Cause that's my funday
An I-don't-have-to-run day
It's just another manic Monday."

I was in college when this song was popular, and I remember dancing to this song at clubs and parties.  Where were you in 1986?  And what is your memory of this song?

I had no idea that the lyrics were written by Prince. Interesting! I sometimes get this song in my head at work on Mondays...and now it is again! :-)

I agree with Holly - Prince wrote that song - who knew?! I was in high school when this song came out - and I remember dancing around my room singing it! Fun! Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

Thanks for the comments! I was really surprised that Prince wrote this song too. I had no idea!
