Saturday is one of the best nights of the week because most people are off work and love to go out and party. It also leaves a day on the weekend for recovery and rest to get us back to work for another week!
Here are 25 songs about Saturday (or have “Saturday” in the title):
1. “Saturday Night’s Alright (for Fighting)” – Elton John
This is a party-going song for sure that seems to always end up in a fight. Elton John rocks this song on the piano and can get a crowd pumped up for bar brawls and old-fashioned friendly fights out in the backyard parties.
2. “God Bless Saturday” – Kid Rock
This song is about the grind of the workweek as Kid Rock goes through each day of the week. Things come alive on Saturday as we all feel the stress go away with the parties. It feels good, as everyone can relate to whether you party on Friday or Saturday, the thankfulness is still there.
3. “Saturday in the Park” – Chicago
Chicago has a way to take you back in time and this song is about a perfect summer day spent in the park with friends and family. This is certainly a nostalgic song that will make you long for simpler times. It brings back those happy memories that we just love.
4. “Saturday Love” – Cherrelle and Alexander O’Neal
There is something about Saturdays and close connections for lovers. Here is a song about a young couple in love spending their Saturdays together. It is a sweet, romantic song that will make you feel love. Remember those courting and dating days? Awe yeah!
5. “Saturday Night” – the Bay City Rollers
Roll down the windows or put the top down to this song. It is about going out on Saturday night and having a good time. It is an upbeat, happy song that will put a smile on your face and make you feel like living it up.
6. “Night Fever” – the Bee Gees
This song is about the disco craze of the 1970s. It is an iconic song that will make you want to get up and dance. It was also part of the John Travolta craze and song title soundtrack where most guys wanted to be him in the dance halls and girls wanted to be with him everywhere else.

8. “Saturday Night (Is the Loneliest Night of the Week)” – Frank Sinatra
This song is about being alone on Saturday night and feeling lonely. It is sad, but a relatable song that many people can relate to. No one can do it better than Sinatra. His voice in this song makes you feel the strain.
9. “It Always Rains On Saturday” – Reba McEntire
Not all Saturdays are happy and carefree. Sometimes the heart gets beaten down on the day most associated with positive thoughts and leisure. Reba McEntire expresses a forlorn attitude in this track that many of us can relate to. The last portion of this song is truly heartbreaking, so listen to it prepared for some less inspired sentiments.
10. “Saturday” – Rebecca Black and Dave Days
We think that Rebecca Black did a great job at parodying her own (less than stellar) “Friday” song. Sometimes when you receive criticism from the rest of the world, it’s best to just accept it and get better. We commend Rebecca Black for doing just that with her song “Saturday” which is comparatively better than the aforementioned track. Listen to this one for another fun, young excitement track.

A Saturday song for those lonely hearts, Sam Cooke created a great hit that allows for us to all lament our sadness from time to time. Listen to this if you’re looking for some solace in being alone.

The Grateful Dead are one of the most popular rock bands of all time, and for good reason! Their unrelenting guitar jams are some of the most legendary works of music in history, and their devoted fanbase of dead heads never fails to make their music stick. Listen to this Saturday song from them and relax!
14. “Saturday Morning” – Ee;s
The melody takes you deep into this song as you will not want to get out of bed with your lover for a few more hours. It is about a perfect Saturday morning spent with the one you love. It is a mellow, feel good song that will make you feel love.
15. “When Saturday Comes” – Def Leppard
The band Def Leppard can rock the house and get anyone ready for a Saturday night party. Their song is about looking forward to the weekend and having fun. It is an upbeat, rock song that will get you moving. It is a great song to play when getting ready for a night out or just hanging out with friends. You can feel the excitement in the lyrics and music.
