Music Monday - I Don't Like Mondays

I am starting something new that I just made up called Music Monday. Each Monday I will post a music video and either write about the song or a memory the song evokes. I think music more than anything else can bring you back to certain time or memory.

I have always liked the song "I Don't Like Mondays" by the Boomtown Rats and it is actually quite a serious song. It is about a teenage girl in 1979 who went on a shooting spree at an elementary school playground. She killed two adults and injured eight children. She showed no remorse and when asked why she did it, she said, "I don't like Mondays".
