But For Me It Was Tuesday: Music

  • The Bside "Tombigbee" by Tori Amos begins with almost these exact words. It most likely refers to the plight of Native Americans under the early expansionist American government.
    To you it's another day
    To me it's a grim reaping
    Just another shooting star
    Hanging on your wire
  • "Just Another Day" by Lisa Dames is a story of a woman who was raised by a single mother, who herself dies in a car accident soon afterward. She uses the chorus to show that her loss isn't that big in the grand scheme of things, and that she will be okay no matter what happens:
    No one called from the White House to say
    The president's making this a holiday
    People still ridin' in the subway alone
    It didn't stop anybody's big league game
    Or sinners from fallin' on their knees to pray
    Traffic's still movin' real slow all over LA
    For the rest of the world, oh yeah
    It was just another day
  • "The Entertainer" by Billy Joel is a non-villainous (probably) example from the point of view of the one doing the deeds:
    I am the entertainer; I've been all around the world
    I've played all kinds of palaces, laid all kinds of girls
    I can't remember faces, don't remember names
    Ah, but what the hell, y'know it's just as well
    'Cause after a while and a thousand miles
    It all becomes the same
