"Weekend in New England" is a song written by Randy Edelman, and released by Barry Manilow on his 1976 album This One's for You. It was issued as a single in 1976, reaching number one on the U.S. Adult Contemporary (Easy Listening) chart and number ten on the Billboard Hot 100.[1] The only reference to the title is the line, "Time in New England took me away...", and the word "weekend" is never mentioned at all. It was followed by the single, "Looks Like We Made It".

John Barrowman recorded the song for his 2007 album Another Side; Manilow's version was heard in the 2009 comedy Paul Blart: Mall Cop.
