Story

The famed "saturday night sessions" on my back porch with X-man on maracas although he is deceased.This is by tribute to Mike Smith,lead singer and keyboards for "The Dave Clark Five." leather lunged Mike Smith pro even a singer,and this guy was "top of the pops" as they say,even "The Beatles" feared him.You "kiddies" would not understand the impact of "The Dave Clark Five" upon the early sixties.They were asked to do the part of "The Monkees" by Don Kirchner and thay turned the part down.I am a major Dave Clark fan,and as well possess the honor of calling him a personal friend.This is such a humble version of this tune,we were just having some fun on a saturday night and sadly so..I did not have a date well yes I did with my Les Paul Custom.And the x-man showed up!The DC5 never released this song as a single and they ought to have done that.It was the film soundtrack to their movie "Weekend In London" their answer to The Beatles Film "help!"I have spoken to Dave on the phone a couple of times,what a sharp cookie!

Lyrics

Saturday night everybody's having fun, You don't know that I'm having me some. You left me alone and though I would die, And all night long you thought I would cry. Were having a wild weekend,having a wild weekend! Reeling and rocking,rocking and rolling! I met a sweet girl who thought I was fine, She said "come with me and we'll have a good time!" We got all dressed up and I took her out. She's not like you...she treats me right. We're having a wild weekend,having a wild weekend! Reeling and rocking,rocking and rolling!
