I love the song, it sounds so upbeat, but when you find out what it's about...

On 29 January 1979, 16-year-old Brenda Ann Spencer opened fire on children arriving at Cleveland Elementary School in San Diego from her house across the street, killing two men and wounding eight students and a police officer. Principal Burton Wragg was attempting to rescue children in the line of fire when he was shot and killed, and custodian Mike Suchar was slain attempting to aid Wragg.

Spencer used a rifle her father had given her as a gift. As to what impelled her into this form of murderous madness, she told a reporter, "I don't like Mondays. This livens up the day."

The "Mondays" comment was not the only eyebrow-raising declaration to issue from Spencer that day. According to a report written by the police negotiators who spoke with her during the six-hour standoff, she made
such comments to them as "There was no reason for it, and it was just a lot of fun"; "It was just like shooting ducks in a pond"; and "[the children ] looked like a herd of cows standing around, it was really easy pickings."

Me neither.

I hate it when I fall in love with a song, then view the video and it's something horrible. Nice way to ruin a song!

Don't seek the video. There are many videos on the web. :D Enjoy the melody that soothes your mood. That's the point. :D

I once ran into the same trouble and realized then that I needed more lubricated food for thoughts.
