September Songs

Can you believe that September is here? I love September, so I am glad – fall in the air, lots of critters about (birds, butterflies, spiders, and other bugs mostly), late season flowers in bloom (especially the wildflowers), the pennant race in baseball, the beginning of football season, getting outside more, and a new year (since we tend to live by the school year, September first feels like New Year's day to me). It’s a great month all in all.

Hey, here's a question. If you can think of ANY song with the word September in the lyrics or title I'd like to know it. I have a short list but know there must be a LOT more of them out there. Send 'em on!

"September Morning" by Neil Diamond is the first to come to mind.

And Joel, you should know this one:
"I hear the hot-blooded singer
On the bandstand croon
September Song, Memphis in June
While they're beating the devil out of a guy who's wearing a flaming red wig"
Hint: 1983.

"September" by Earth, Wind, & Fire... one of my favorite songs!

I can't find any lyric charts for Memphis in June that have "September" in them. I heard Dylan played around a lot with the song. I am not all that familiar with it. What album is it on?

"Someone's Got A Hold Of My Heart" from the Bootleg Series, 1983.
I recently received the Bootleg Series as a gift and it's very interesting.
You can hear a portion of the song here:

"September" song from THE FANTASTICS.
I think it's September anyway. I know December is mentioned as well in the lyrics.

Sorry, the song is:

"Try to remember the kind of September" with “The Fantasticks”- which I misspelled.

That's it.
