Nick Drake-Saturday Sun.

I just launched my Nick Drake Blog.  Nick is a singer/songwriter and a musician. His music means  the world to me. He has touched me so deeply. Such soulful music from a soulful human being. I have an autoimmune disease and Nick's music brings me comfort and courage. RIP sweet Nick. You were too good in your way. Too beautiful for this world.

Nick's lyrics-Saturday Sun.

Saturday sun came early one morning
In a sky so clear and blue
Saturday sun came without warning
So no-one knew what to do.
Saturday sun brought people and faces
That didn't seem much in their day
But when I remember those people and places
They were really too good in their way.
In their way
In their way
Saturday sun won't come and see me today.

Think about stories with reason and rhyme
Circling through your brain.
And think about people in their season and time
Returning again and again
And again
And again
And Saturday's sun has turned to Sunday's rain.

So Sunday sat in the Saturday sun
And wept for a day gone by.


  1. Hi Julie! it's a surprise to me that you like Nick Drake. I have all his records! he's a great singer and composer. I will follow that site. I've seen that it's under construction...I have no doubt that it will be a great success. Regards.

  2. Hi Nacho! I'm sorry it took me awhile to respond. My cat recently died and I'm grieving. I posted pictures of her just now.

    I love Nick Drake! I own all of his albums, too. I also own his demos and home recordings. I hope to attend the Nick Drake Gathering in Tanworth-in-Arden one day. I will post more on my Nick Drake blog soon. Thanks so much for following. I appreciate it so much. Best wishes.

    1. I'm so sorry about your pet. She was beautiful. On the other hand, It's a pity that
      Drake is a very underrated artist. He deserves much more recognition.

  3. Thank you, Nacho. I miss her so much.

    Yes, Nick definitely deserves more recognition. He has a very dedicated fan base. Hopefully, we can all spread the word. I'm going to purchase the book, Pink Moon by Gorm Henrik Rasmussen (Hardcover) in the near future. I look forward to reading it.
