A song for Saturday night

I have the flu so am taking the lazy way out and matching a song for every day… it’ll be interesting to see if I can manage that.

Here’s Saturday Night by Cat Stevens – enjoy! I love the way the song just takes OFF towards the end.

Ah let me get bilingual as well:

Stoksielalleen op ‘n Saterdagaand – (All alone on a Saturday night) David Kramer sent this song to Zola Budd on the eve of her Olympic race (in which she and Mary Dekker collided), sympathizing with the loneliness she must have felt on that evening.

Oddly, both are about being alone on a Saturday night… Great how songwriters turn sad times into music that comforts and cheers up others for years and decades to come.

It’s a kind of alchemy.
