'Manic Monday' by The Bangles

MONDAYS AMIRITE???? Is the very controversial claim at the heart of this huge 80s hit from the Bangles. Evan and Andrew investigate whether Mondays are really persecuting The Bangles orrrrrr was this song perhaps written by an alien who had just learned about human jobs? No, in fact, it was written by Prince, and this episode reveals that he plagiarized one of his own @%#$ songs when phoning in the writing of this overgrown nursery rhyme. DJs and producers, don’t miss the absolutely sick sample pack of snares that Evan drops at 17:45, completely manic. Historians, don’t miss Andrew’s insights about Mike Myers, Fun Days, and Sex Shooters. 

This week’s punch up is exTREMEly useful in your everyday life and if it had its own title other than “Manic Monday Punch Up” it would be “The Consequences Of My Actions” -- get this song and other punch ups on our Patreon: www.patreon.com/gregorybrothers and support the pod!
