"I Love Saturday" is a song by British synthpop duo Erasure. It was released as the third single from the band's sixth studio album I Say I Say I Say. An uptempo love song, "I Love Saturday" was written by Vince Clarke and Andy Bell and produced by Martyn Ware.

Mute Records issued the single in the UK while Elektra Records released it in the U.S. In addition to the normal vinyl, cassette and CD singles, Mute released the "I Love Saturday EP" in the UK shortly afterwards. The EP contained several new tracks.

"I Love Saturday" peaked at number twenty on the UK Singles Chart and number twenty on the U.S. Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. In Germany, the single stopped at number sixty-nine, Erasure's lowest-charting single in that country up to that point.
