It's Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday... If you aren't sick of that already, well, we are. So is the R&B group The Weeknd, which dropped a new album called Thursday last night.

We want to celebrate with them, so SF Weekly put together a playlist celebrating every single day of the week. With this, you can rock out not just to Friday, but Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday as well. Hit the jump to check out our days-of-the-week playlist, as well as The Weeknd's newest song.

FRIDAY

Song of the day: "Friday" by Rebecca Black

Love her or hate her, Rebecca Black is the pioneer of unabashed celebrations of Friday-ness, and telling you that "Yesterday was Thursday, Thursday/Today i-is Friday, Friday (Partyin')/.../Tomorrow is Saturday/And Sunday comes after...wards"

Also:

"Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" by Katy Perry: A close second in overplayed Friday songs, we get to see Katy Perry with braces and headgear, followed by a night of debauchery.

"Friday I'm In Love" by The Cure: Something soothing after the hangover that is Last Friday Night, this love song gets bonus points for mentioning every day of the week.

SATURDAY

Song of the day: "Saturday" by Fall Out Boy

Music for rocking out to when you "Can't sleep/In the wake of Saturday."

Also:

"Looking for the Heart of Saturday Night" by Tom Waits: With a voice famously described as " soaked in a vat of bourbon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months, and then taken outside and run over with a car," Waits is our go-to guy for lonely Saturday nights.

"Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting" by Elton John:"`Cause Saturday night's the night I like/Saturday night's alright alright alright..."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
