Weekly Vinyl – Silesian Saturdays

Saturdays in Silesia (EP)
Rational Youth
(1982)

What a joyous song.
What pure electro-pop. Pure synth-pop.
Saturdays in Silesia is clean. The beat is pronounced. It is fresh. It is crisp.
This is a great pop song.
Rational Youth were a band out of Montreal that was prominent in the early 1980s. I should say they are a band as they are still around.
They have a sizable discography and had a few hits but they are all overshadowed by this one. There is another song on this EP, Pile Ou Face, but when that is playing you just want to hear Saturdays in Silesia again.
The song really hits one out of the park and I’m sure the band feels that it is a blessing and a curse.
It is a great song.
