Breakfast Blend: Seven Day Weekend

Might as well play them all. It’s almost a long weekend.

Gary US Bonds version, with a swell video…

Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers’ take…

Jimmy Cliff and Elvis Costello’s song has the same title but is not the same song! I hadn’t heard it in long enough that I filled in the blanks, thinking it was the Pomus/Schuman tune. I’m not sure the world needed another song called Seven Day Weekends, but it got two really good ones. THe Cliff and Costello tune appears to be written for a goofy tropical island vacation movie, clips from which keep video clip suitably frantic.
