Lets Kill Saturday Night
In folk, country and rock music saturday night has always stood for the carnal illicit side of life. Sunday morning on the other hand, is the spiritual, religous, church side. Witness Ralph Stnaley's two mirror albums , where the first album is a collection of secular good time music and the other is filled with country gospel.
Here are some songs to illustrate that illustrate my point about Saturday ( I am sure there many more I haven't thought of right this minute):
Almost Saturday Night by John Fogerty, with a great sounding guitar to start the song off.
Forty Miles to Saturday Night by Paul Kelly, an Australian who has put out a ton of albums but his best is Under the Sun and this is the best song on the album.
Let's Kill Saturday Night by Robbie Fulks who is probably the best country songwriter around today but you will never ever hear anything of his on the radio.
Can't forget Sam cooke and Just Another Saturday Night.
And Eddie Floyd Saturday Night a great little soul record.
