BLUE MONDAY

It has long been said that “Monday is a mess” so we will endeavor to do our best to help you wend your way through the muck with upbeat tunes like Lightning Hopkins’ “Happy Blues for John Glenn” and other oldies of similar sentiment. And as it is Monday, we will be bookending this chapter of Blue Monday with two work songs that embody just that. It may start off “Stormin’ and Rainin’” but by month’s end you’ll be “Feelin’ Bad” no longer. Let’s catch that train and ride. . . .
—Irving Snurd, Blue Monday director of cosmetic consciousness


Lowell Fulsom • Stormin’ and Rainin’ • 1948
