The weekend has landed and you've either woken up feeling like you want to die or spent the whole day getting your gladrags in order and are ready to become a slave to the night.
Putting together this playlist we were taken aback by how many songs feature Saturday in the title and strangely, how many of them are pretty great. In fact, we found so many songs that had Saturday in the title that we didn't really bother (with a few exceptions) to find other things which sound-like or sum up this day of youthful exuberance, barbecues and birthday bashes.
We'll see you tomorrow with a bad head, after we've eaten a bacon buttie, read the Sunday Papers and watched the Hollyoaks omnibus.
