Do you know?
“Thank God it’s Friday” is a 1978 disco song produced by the studio disco group Love and Kisses. The song hit an unprecedented popularity when it was adopted as the theme song for a film of the same title written by the European composer/producer, Costandinos.
Over decades some radio stations would play the song on Friday evenings to show the end of the work week and lighten up the mood of the people for the approaching “workless weekends”.
Thank God it’s Friday! Everybody is smiling. Everywhere it’s cool, fun, and exciting. The first signpost of the day is in the dress mode of the workers; relaxed.
While virtually all workers are happy and animated about Fridays, it’s interesting to know that their plans for weekends differ. The party lovers are excited about the chance to dance out their stress; the spiritual inclined are happy with the opportunity to reunite with God.
What of the book lovers? Excited, of course! Very eager to go home and settle for the next best book to read. Are you one of them? If you are, then I’ve got a gift for you: one of the best titles to read: Faceless, (by Amma Darko) published under Lantern Books Literary Series and currently under WAEC /SSCE list.
Faceless is a story set in a world where parents have lost moral authority over their children and are totally paralysed by fear of the society. It chronicles the life of an innocent young girl named Fofo. Fofo in her innocence seeks help, little does she know that the society has lost its priorities, its sense of direction; it has become dysfunctional and deaf to the cries of abandoned children.
