Bangles: Manic Monday
"Manic Monday" was the first hit single from the Bangles. It reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. The lyrics tell of someone waking up Monday morning, and facing a hectic journey to work when she would rather be relaxing on Sunday-her "funday". The sonic markers involved in the song is guitar, drums, synthesiser, and bass. It is influential in today's cultures as it is used in TV shows/movies.
