“Nothing matters but the weekend. From a Tuesday point of view.”
If you found yourself humming the tune as you read the words, then you’re familiar with “This Beat Goes On/Switchin’ To Glide” by The Kings. Possibly, you have heard that song every Friday for the past two decades – many radio stations STILL play it religiously to kick off the weekend. And rightly so. It may have been a one-hit wonder, but it’s one of the most sustainable one-hit wonders ever. It totally encapsulates the feeling of…well, the weekend!
Check out the backstory of what lead up to that hit song from Mister Zero, songwriter/guitarist for The Kings, in Cara’s Basement.
