Favorite "Time of Day" Songs #10 - "10:15 Saturday Night"
November 26, 2016 9:29pm CST
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.
