There’s no denying that Friday is the best day of the week (it even has an entire song dedicated to it). It marks the end of your five day stretch as a corporate drone, opening up an entire weekend full of opportunities. A weekend getaway? Maybe. Prepping for the next episode of Game of Thrones? More Likely. However you choose to spend the weekend, you’re going to need some fresh songs to accompany everything from your Saturday night pregame to your Sunday morning hangover.
