Chairmen Of The Board: Everything's Tuesday [1970]

written by Ronald Dunbar, Edith Wayne*, and Daphne Dumas

This perfect slice of AM radio sunshine soul had me reaching for the rewind button on the subway yesterday (Tuesday). It's a great song to listen to twice in a row because it clocks in at 2:48. This went to #38 on the pop charts in September of '70, and made 770 WABC radio's Heavy Hundred Hits for the year (see above).

*Edith Wayne, I'm told, is a pseudonym for Eddie Holland (of Holland-Dozier-Holland).

Everything's Tuesday is available on dozens of compilations, but this box set is probably the classiest.

This tune has such a "feel-good" vibe.

New reader, as of today, and I am loving the obscure - to me - tracks. Anyone else have Chairmen of the Board tracks they would recommend?

Hey Brian,

I only know the Chairmen's hits -- Give Me Just A Little More Time, You've Got Me Dangling On A String, Pay To The Piper... but they've got great vocals and a great team of writers working behind them, so I'm sure there are more golden nuggets in their discography. You might want to pick up the box set I linked to in the post for more of this kind of sound. Buying that set is certainly on my to-do list. Anyway, glad you liked the song and thanks for the comment.

apropos of nothing here, as a frequent visitor to this blog and devout dreamchimney junkie I'm happy to say that I've found a lengthy version of "Daddy's Curses". Currently, DC is asking for votes on your favorite quote from that GLORIOUS piece. Now, I can supply the link for the 12+ min. NSFW/ANYWHERE unprecedented clip of "Bruce, The Piano Man":

It's beyond compare & utterly priceless.
