10:15 Saturday Night (3:40)

Cover of Boys Don't Cry

From Boys Don't Cry and 51 other releases

“10:15 Saturday Night” is a song by British post-punk band, The Cure. It was the B-side to their single “Killing an Arab”, as well as the opening track of their debut album, Three Imaginary Boys. It was also released in France as a single with the track “Accuracy” as the B-side. It has been performed live during most of their shows since its release, and was included in their live album Concert.

According to interviews in the booklet for the Deluxe Edition of Three Imaginary Boys, the demo to the song is what caught Chris Parry’s attention in 1978 and led him to sign the band to his newly founded record company, Fiction. The track was written by Robert Smith at the age of 16 one evening while sitting at the kitchen table feeling “utterly morose” watching the tap dripping and drinking his dad’s home made beer. It was first performed as part of the Easy Cure set around the band’s local area of Crawley.

This song was covered by Australian punkabilly band The Living End on their 1996 EP It’s For Your Own Good. It was also sampled on “Man Next Door” by Massive Attack.

    I don't think it's the darkest of their songs ("Pornography" comes to mind), but yeah - definitely the definition of anguish. Was such a sign of brilliance to come when this came out.

    Sitting in the kitchen sink watching the tap drip... the definition of anguish.

    By far the darkest The Cure song, regardless if you agree or not.

    If I didn't know any better I'd say Eminem ripped this song off for "Lose Yourself".

    This has got to be one of the best ever Cure songs. Mental orgasm.

    Without that bass this song wouldn't be half as good. Bass is what post-punk is about, so good.
