Amongst the first things diligent language learners study, are the days of the week and the months of the year. However, memorizing these words in a foreign language is not as simple as 1 2 3. Thus, not only have I provided the meanings of the days of the week, but also a fun story to help you remember the Japanese words.

I learned how not to confuse the order of days of the week by listening to Weeeek by NEWS, lol (*^^*)

The full song is much better, but i couldnt find a video of it.

≪☆Lyrics☆≫

Ashita kara mata nichi getsu ka 
Hora sui moku mawatte kin do nichiyou
Bokura hibi wo tanoshinde ikitekou saa iku zo!

From tomorrow it'll be Sunday, Monday, Tuesday
See, Wednesday, Thursday, then Friday, Saturday, Sunday
Let's enjoy our days, come on, here we go!

that mnemonic is so funny, but its a little long.

I also learned my vocab from the song weeeeek by NEWS

heres my post, that I posted on your japaneseammo.com site as well.

When I was learning the days of the week it was much easier to hear it in a song.
the song weeeeek by NEWS, the chorus is all the days of the week as well.
And its so catchy, so if you memorize you'll just be in a good mood everytime you think of it.
the chorus goes:

明日っからまた日、月、火 ほら水、木回って金、土、日曜 
Ashita, kara mata nichi, gestu, ka, hora sui, moku mawatte kin, dou, nichiyou, 

夢の日々を 大事にいきましょう もういっちょ!
yume no hibi wo, daiji ni ikimashou, mouichou!

and a quick translation: 
From tomorrow, back to Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, look out Wednesday then Thursday come around to Friday, Saturday, Sunday 
Let's go on with these cherished days of dreams, one more time!

and heres the song:
