The Day Show

For my next trick, as a 5 Towns Radio Presenter, I’m going to produce a Day Show. Yeah, it’s a play on my name, but it’s also going to be a show featuring all the best songs with the word ‘Day’ in the title, lyrics or refrain (or even in the name of the act). I can already think of several. There’s the Banana Boat song (Daaay-O, Me say Day-ay-ay-O), the Yesterday song (Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away) and the classic by The Cure: Friday I’m In Love.

Right, let’s get them all on a list and then see how many more we can find on the interweb:
