"Friday on My Mind"

The Easybeats - Friday on My Mind (1966)

The chorus and the versus are so different here I love it. The chorus is all jangly guitars and "gonna have fun in the city", the versus are minor chord dominated and sound oppressive. They make you ache for the open sound of the chorus. A absolutely great song structure. From the opening notes it would not sound out of place at all in a Wes Anderson film. In fact, someone should let him know about this song for inclusion in Moonrise Kingdom.
