“Saturday Night/ Sunday Morning”
I’m a serial downloader of those free compilation albums released by record companies as promotional material, but I never actually listen to them. This song was on one of those compilations, and caught me off guard one day when I had my whole music library on shuffle. It immediately drew me in with its narrative lyrics and stripped-down arrangement.
“Saturday Night/ Sunday Morning”—off of Drew Thomson’s self-titled 7″—is one of those songs that feels like it’s definitely based off of a true story. It’s honest and gritty. The just-an-acoustic-guitar-and-a-voice arrangement is simple, but pretty, and works to create an atmosphere for the song that is, appropriately, just a little sad.
