Throwback Thursday: I Don't Like Mondays by The Boomtown Rats
The music video for I Don’t Like Mondays by The Boomtown Rats. According to singer and songwriter Bob Geldof, he wrote the song after reading a telex report at Georgia State University’s campus radio station, WRAS, on the shooting spree of 16-year-old Brenda Ann Spencer, who fired at children playing in a school playground at Cleveland Elementary School in San Diego, California on 29 January 1979. She killed two adults and injured eight children and one police officer. Spencer showed no remorse for her crime, and her full explanation for her actions was “I don’t like Mondays; this livens up the day.” Found at YouTube from sueuk.
