In 1990, K.T. Oslin released “Come Next Monday” as the second single off her third studio album, Love in a Small Town. It easily climbed to the top spot of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, where it remained for two weeks and enjoyed a total of twenty weeks stay.
The song marked Oslin’s final single to rank No. 1 on the country chart.
Written by K.T. Oslin with Charlie Back and Rory Bourke, “Come Next Monday” tells the story of a woman begging her lover to come and spend some quality time with her before she fully lets her go. She’s even more than willing to go beyond her comfort zone – like not talking dirty for a week or two and going on a diet – just to have a small portion of his time.
“Come Next Monday” was actually first recorded by country singer-songwriter Judy Rodman in 1986 for her album Judy.
The Music Video Is Nothing Short Of A Cinematic Masterpiece
K.T. Oslin debuted a seemingly bizarre music video for “Come Next Monday.” The country star played the role of Frankenstein’s bride in some strange laboratory – at the same time, she narrated the music video as herself, as if the video never got to be made.
Indeed, the 1990s got some absolutely incredible music videos, and no other than Oslin could have done it better. She’s one of a kind! Today, K.T. Oslin songs went on to influence a crop of singers and songwriters. Some are even being recorded by an array of artists – including Dottie West, Anne Murray, and so much more. In 2018, she was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
