Brano del giorno: "Another Saturday Night"

... di Sam Cooke 





"Another Saturday Night" fu composta da Sam Cooke mentre nel 1962 espletava un tour britannico insieme a Little Richard. E' uno dei suoi pezzi soul più vivaci, ballabili, da affiancare a "Good News", "Having A Party" e "Twistin' The Night Away".

Gli inizi dell'"uomo che inventò il soul" furono specialmente dedicati al gospel (vedi il suo connubio con The Soul Stirrers), e quindi alla musica religiosa; ma Cooke ovviamente non viveva sulla luna e, dopo una serie di vicissitudini, finì per lanciare una ballata politica del peso di "A Change Is Gonna Come" (ispirato dalla dylanesca "Blowin' In The Wind", ma anche dalle proteste per le strade d'America)... e ciò quasi esattamente un anno prima di venire ucciso: nell'Hacienda Motel di Los Angeles.

"Another Saturday Night" divenne uno dei più grandi hits di Cat Stevens.

"Another Saturday Night"



Another saturday night and I ain’t got nobody,
I got some money ‘cause I just got paid.
Now how I wish I had someone to talk to,
I’m in an awful way.


Let me tell about it, look here:
I got in town a month ago, I ain’t seen a lotta girls since then.
If I could find ‘em I could get ‘em, but as yet I haven’t met ‘em,
That’s why I’m in the shape I’m in

Ohh
Another saturday night and I ain’t got nobody,
I got some money ‘cause I just got paid.
Now how I wish I had someone to talk to,
I’m in an awful way.


Now, another fella told me, he had a sister who looked so fine.
Instead of being my deliverance, she had a strange resemblance to a
Cat named Frankenstein

Here another saturday night and I ain’t got nobody,
I got some money ‘cause I just got paid.
Now how I wish I had someone to talk to,
I’m in an awful way
.

Yeah.. man, another saturday night. I got nobody..
It’s hard on a fella, when he don’t know his way around,
If I won't find me a honey to help me spend my money,
I’m gonna have to blow this town

Another saturday night and I ain’t got nobody,
I got some money ‘cause I just got paid.
Now how I wish I had someone to talk to,
I’m in an awful - here it is

Another saturday night and I ain’t got nobody,
I got some money ‘cause I just got paid.
Now how I wish I had someone to talk to,
I’m in an awful - one more time

Another saturday night and I ain’t got nobody,
I got some money ‘cause I just got paid.
Now how I wish I had someone to talk to,
I’m in an awful way.
