The Courier-Mail - QWeekend - - UPFRONT -

EL­TON JOHN

Satur­day Night’s Al­right For

Fight­ing (1973) is a boozy Bri­tish rock’n’roll song about get­ting “as oiled as a diesel train”, ap­ing its US coun­ter­parts with lyrics about switch­blades and mo­tor­bikes.

BAY CITY ROLLERS

The Scots pop­sters proudly dis­played their spell­ing bee cre­den­tials with 1975’s

Satur­day Night, the re­frain of which had the tar­tan-clad lads yelling a chant of “S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y … night!”

TOM WAITS

Old gravel-guts Tom went (Look­ing For) The Heart of a Satur­day Night in 1974,

but all he found were The Ghosts of Satur­day Night (Af­ter Hours at Napoleone’s Pizza House).

BON JOVI

Their 1995 sin­gle Some­day

I’ll Be Satur­day Night dips with op­ti­mism into the lives of de­spair­ing, abused, hard­luck ru­n­away bat­tlers who are “feel­ing like a Mon­day, but some­day I’ll be Satur­day night”.
