Ralph,

Right now there are 23 songs on the list with another 5 like "In the Year 2525".

I did start a companion list for songs mentioning days.  That list has 41 songs on it with another 5 like "Yesterday's Gone".

Things has slowed. I'll try and clean up the lists and post them tomorrow or over the weekend.

Before the discussion goes completely off the rails, remember Ross' original challenge:

I’ve always thought about putting together a list of songs that refer to a specific date
Just naming a year doesn't count; nor just a month; nor even naming a day of the week. I know we can all think of tons of songs that do that ("Monday, Monday," "Summer of '65" etc.). I, like Ross, am curious to see how many songs there are that have a specific calendar date in them (because I have a nagging feeling I've forgotten one or two in my list). This is hard-core trivia, indeed, but if any group can do it, I'm sure we can.

Years ago, when Harden and Weaver held forth and gripped the high ratings on WMAL in Washington,, they ran an ad for a bank that included the phrase "Daytime, nighttime and Saturday, too." For some unknown and annoying reason, that phrase has been an earworm for me this week. I don't remember the name of the bank, but that lyric stuck.
 
Les, here for the other six days
