In an interview with Phil Sutcliffe published in the August 30, 1980 issue of Sounds, composer and performer Kate Bush said this was one of her earliest compositions; she wrote it when she was about fifteen, adding "...I love saxophones so I wanted to write a song about them... The perfect setting was this smokey bar in Berlin with nobody listening except me in the corner..."
Running to 3 minutes 47 seconds, "The Saxophone Song" is the second track on Kate's debut album. It was recorded at Air Studios in June 1975, produced by Andrew Powell and engineered by Jon Kelly.
