Breaking up with someone you love takes time. You have to go through the process of heartache until you get over it. This theme is exactly what happens in Lorrie Morgan‘s song “Except for Monday.”

“Except for Monday”

Lorrie Morgan released her heartbreaking song “Except for Monday” in 1991. In addition, it was written by Reed Nielsen for Morgan’s album Something Red. Her song entered the US Billboard Hot Country Songs chart at number four. In addition, “Except for Monday” entered the Canadian chart and reached number seven on the chart.

The Album

Morgan’s album Something Red also did a good job on the Billboard chart. It secured the number eight spot on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. Moreover, the album placed at number fifty-three on the Billboard 200 chart. Aside from entering the chart, the album was Platinum-certified by RIAA.

There were four songs from Lorrie’s album that was released as a single and therefore entered the chart. These are the following songs that entered the chart, “Except for Monday,” “We Both Walk,” “A Picture of Me (Without You),” and “Something in Red.”

“We Both Walk” reached number three on the Billboard country chart. Meanwhile, her single “A Picture of Me (Without You)” secured the ninth position on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. “Something in Red” placed at number fourteen on the Billboard Hot Country chart.

About the Song

In Lorrie Morgan’s song, the narrator saw her ex-lover, and he was surprised that she seems to move on. The narrator said that as each day of the week goes by, she gets over him slowly except for Monday, probably because they broke up on a Monday. Furthermore, she made it clear that getting over him may seem easy but it is not. It took her time and getting used to not being with him before she finally feels good again.

“Don’t get me wrong
It wasn’t always this easy
Getting over you
Got a little rough on me.”

That is how it feels like to go through a breakup. You don’t have to rush it. You let time heal you, and soon everything will fall into the right place.
