Friday Factory Tune Asks: Was This Your Celebrated Summer?

Recovery Summer? We call upon Hüsker Dü to inquire as to its effectiveness.

Do you remember when the first snowfall fell?
When summer barely had a snowball’s chance in hell?

Was this your celebrated summer?
Was this your celebrated summer?
Was this your celebrated summer?

“Celebrated Summer” appeared on New Day Rising,” one of the ’80s best albums. Bob Mould continues to perform the song in his live shows, also highly recommended.

And now that we haul out the vinyl to the live “The Living End” album again, more and more apropos songs present themselves. On the recession, “Hardly Getting Over It.” And the political consequences? “Friend, You’ve Got to Fall.

There’s nothing wrong with having aspirations
Nothing wrong with walking tall
But if misfortune deals the consequences
Sooner or later, friend, you’ve got to fall
