Gotta Get Down On Friday!!!

Happy Friday guys!

To celebrate the end of the week you should check out this fantastic article claiming that the song “Friday” (the really vapid Rebecca Black one on the radio a couple years ago) was written by Bob Dylan. It’s a really funny article–it analyzes all the lyrics and references stuff like Rosa Parks and communist paranoia. My favorite part is when the author cites Martin Luther King Jr. as calling it “the song that gets me out of bed in the morning”. So funny. Anyway here’s the link to the fake article, and a link to a video of the fake “original Dylan version” recorded on vinyl.

 
When I student taught high schoolers last semester I had them all completely convinced that Dylan was the original artist and that it was a civil rights protest song 🙂
