Song: Come Saturday morning..remember it?

Just thinking how great Saturday's have been and are great to me.  So sometimes, songs come to mind.

 

If you don't know this song, what's your favorite day of the week?

I love that song, haven't heard it in ages!! It was in the 1969 movie, The Sterile Cuckoo with Liza Minnelli. That was such a good film, haven't seen that it ages either. 

 

 

 

Come Saturday morning
I'm goin' away with my friend
We'll Saturday-spend till the end of the day
Just I and my friend
We'll travel for miles in our Saturday smiles
And then we'll move on
But we will remember long after Saturday's gone
(Come Saturday morning, come Saturday morning)

Come Saturday morning
I'm goin' away with my friend
We'll Saturday-laugh more than half of the day (ay-ay-ay)
Just I and my friend (my friend)
Dressed up in our rings and our Saturday things
And then we'll move on
But we will remember long after Saturday's gone
(Come Saturday morning, come Saturday morning)

Come Saturday morning (Saturday)

Just I and my friend (my friend)
We'll travel for miles in our Saturday smiles
And then we'll move on
But we will remember long after Saturday's gone

(Come Saturday morning, come Saturday morning)
(Come Saturday morning, come Saturday morning)

When DH & I were first married we got a puppy and when ever she heard this song she would try to sing along. Howling away. So DH would sing it just to get her going. And only this song - thank goodness.

Personally Saturdays never meant much to me as I always worked all 7 days of the week.

@qualitygal  This song is very much a memory in my mind as we sang the song as our Graduating 9th grade jr. High song at the end of the year assembly.  

 

The next year we moved on to HIGH SCHOOL...We practiced for HOURS!   That song will forever be in my mind!

 

I remember the movie too (The Sterile Cockoo)it was a hit  movie  that year with  a very young Lisa Minnelli.  If some posters have not seen it....DO! It was a classic like Love Story for it's time.

 

Here is a great review by Roger Eburt (RIP)

I recall the movie and I think I did not really like how it ended.

I do remember the song and always thought it was so pretty...

 

As for the Olympics, it's well past time for them to be scaled down... The opening and closing ceremonies have become an exercize in excess and there are too many events requiring too many venues... Some of those events, to my mind, are not now and never were Olympic caliber sports... I'd much prefer the games be simplifed than to see them stop being held...

@qualitygal-

I remember that song and always liked it.

Thursdays has always been my favorite day, I'm not sure why except that a lot of things I liked to do happened on Thursday-one of the first ones was our elementary band teacher always came on Thursdays!Smiley Happy

Re: Song: Come Saturday morning..remember it?

i dont think i have a favorite day of the week overall. i think overall it depends on what is going on and who is or isnt around.     SANDPIPERS - "Come Saturday Morning" (1969)
