“Monday, Monday” is a 1966 song written by John Phillips and recorded by the Mamas & the Papas using background instruments played by members of The Wrecking Crew for their 1966 album If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears. It was the group's only #1 hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. Phillips said that he wrote the song quickly, in about 20 minutes. The song includes a false ending, when there is a pause before the coda of the song, and goes up a half note for the bridges and refrains of the song. It was the second consecutive #1 hit song in the U.S. to contain a false ending, succeeding “Good Lovin'” by the Young Rascals, and the first time this novelty had occurred between consecutive #1 hits. On March 2, 1967, The Mamas & the Papas won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for this song. The song was performed at the Monterey Pop Festival (California) in 1967. The performance was filmed for the movie of the festival but not included in the final print. The song appears on the soundtrack of Michael Apted's film Stardust.
