Since my Favorite "Time" Songs series wraps up tomorrow, I thought I'd take it further with Time of Day songs. What better way to start this Saturday night than with The Cure's "10:15 Saturday Night" at #10. Led by vocalist and guitarist Robert Smith, the band's only constant, The Cure formed in West Sussex, England in 1976, and despite numerous lineup changes, are still going strong. Although they are lumped in with the goth genre, I consider them a post punk band with Smith's wicked pop sensibilities scattered among the darker tunes. From their 1979 debut, Three Imaginary Boys, "10:15 Saturday NIght" is the lead off song from that record. The story has always been that Smith wrote the song after a Saturday night spent drinking beer with his dad. The tune was the B-Side to "Killing an Arab," although it was, according to Wikipedia, released as a single in France. Not a hit song, but one that remains popular with fans to this day.

This was the first Cure song I ever heard and I can remember hearing it on the radio when it was brand new. A great song. Memories.

A goth club I used to frequent always played it at 10:15 on Saturday night. Corny, but fun.

Cool song! I love the bassline at the beginning, and in general but the whole song is really good. Kind of has an eerieness to it but in a good way :)

Very early Cure. Totally different than they sound today. Fun song.

I have heard of the Cure, but not enough to know their songs really.

You might have heard "Lovesong" on the radio at some point.

Always quite liked The Cure - they were trying for depressing but always too cheesy for that

They do have some depressing stuff, though. The entire Disintegration album leaves me feeling helpless after I listen to it.
