Interesting facts and trivia about Friday I'm in Love. By Songfacts®.

On this witty take on Rock's traditional love of the weekend, Robert Smith expresses his desire for his lover on their weekly Friday night out but dismisses her over the rest of the week. He said of the song in Spin magazine: "'Friday I'm in Love' is a dumb pop song, but it's quite excellent actually, because it's so absurd. It's so out of character - very optimistic and really out there in happy land. It's nice to get that counterbalance. People think we're supposed to be leaders of some sort of 'gloom movement.' I could sit and write gloomy songs all day long, but I just don't see the point."

The opening line, "I don't care if Monday's blue," is a reference to the New Order hit "Blue Monday."

This song peaked at #6, making it The Cure's second biggest hit in the UK to date, ("Lullaby" peaked at #5). In the US, it reached #18.
