Listen to The Mamas & The Papas’ ‘Monday, Monday’ from Lucky Hank, S01 E03

Folk rock group The Mamas & The Papas’ ‘Monday, Monday‘ was played on the AMC black comedy series Lucky Hank this week — Lucky Hank, Season 1, Episode 3, “Escape“.


The song was heard as Hank is trying to get his car out of the garage, and has a fit of anger as a container dropped off behind the garage is blocking his way.

It plays again later in the episode as Hank tries to do the same thing.

The Mamas & The Papas’ ‘Monday, Monday‘ came out in 1966 as a single and the first track on their debut studio album If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears.

The song shot to the #1 spot on charts in Canada, South Africa and the U.S.

It became the group’s biggest hit when it hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. A place they were never able to replicate again with any other song release.

Monday, Monday‘ also won the group a Grammy Award.

The song became so popular it has since been covered by such luminaries as Marianne Faithful, Petula Clark, Wilson Phillips, Neil Diamond and Dionne Warwick.

Listen to The Mamas & The Papas’ ‘Monday, Monday‘ as heard at the beginning of last night’s Lucky Hank on the group’s If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears album and in the video.
