Yeah, I agree with kds that Bruce is more popular in these parts, without having survey results to prove it. Although our poor excuse for a governor apparently threw his support to Bon Jovi over Springsteen last year. (And thanks to our Union County cops for not killing that armed bombing suspect this morning in a hail of bullets). 

John B -- My son knows Tokyo Ghoul but couldn't identify "Unravel" by the band Ling Tosite Sigure, which means "Cold Seasonal Rain", which we had here today in September!




I'm voting before the leaves start falling in earnest:

Gold -- Green Day -- No explanation, simply prefer it.

Silver -- The Beach Boys -- I like Carl's lead.

Bronze -- Earth, Wind & Fire -- One of those songs that was often playing somewhere in the background.

Tin -- Neil Diamond -- Another one of those songs.


A jaunty, more on-topic song:

Frazey Ford, "September Fields", Indian Ocean, 2014



Thanks, Cindy.


PS -- I feel like I've missed something important by not watching South Park, but the first time I turned it on, the first scene was so unpleasant, I turned it off and never gave it much of a chance after that.

thanks, Larry.

yes, 'Southpark's guys ARE libertarian.  The writers can scoff if they want, but that's what they are.

and yes, there are WAY more body-function related scenes than my taste, so sometimes I have to look away from the TV screen. But.  It helps to remember that one Jonathan Swift character urinated on little foreigners and another advocated that the kindly/moral English solve the 'Irish problem' by eating their babies.
Shows like the Simpsons ...or Family Guy only seldom even try satire.

Gold - Earth Wind and Fyah  GREAT group...when they stuck/stick to going R&B 'n' Funk like they did here.  Disco?  NO!!!  Winner by miles.

Silver - Beach Boys.  Some of their poorer moments would be other artists better moments.  No disco!!!!  This one Rocks OK.  A solid 2nd.

Bronze - Neil?  He just doesn't age well.  At least his muzac sound doesn't.  Many of his songs, on the other hand, do If someone else interprets them..

Whatever/Last -  Green Day.  No thanks.  The genre doesn't matter much.  Not my cup of whatever it is that they do.

Hi Cindy!

I'd pick Bruce over Bon Jovi as well, as long as I don't ask my twelve-year-old self.

Larry, Frazey Ford was a great find.  I left her playing for well over an hour, and she has a collection of cool songs under her belt.  Thanks very much.  [cool]

Once again, we are living an opposite existence (will you guys ever catch up?)  Now is the time for packing away the winter woolies and shaking out lighter summer attire.  Roll on September!

Two from The Bangles.  "Septembur Gurls" (1986), covering Big Star.



And a really cool instrumental, in honor of the upcoming antipodean summer.  "Bitchen' Summer" (1981).  Hey, I didn't pick the title.

John B -- Yes, it was the result of a normal human body-function in the very first scene I watched that turned me off. Obviously, losing me as a viewer totally affected South Park's longevity.

bonnie -- You're welcome. I'll give Frazey more of a listen now. 


One more (reminding us yet again how you can't tell what the hell these kids are singing about these days):

Pity Sex, "September", White Moon, 2016

GOLD for Earth, Wind & Fire - September

SILVER to Beach Boys - Keeping the Summer Alive

BRONZE for Green Day - Wake Me Up When September Ends

...and the much coveted TIN to Neil Diamond - September Morn

Tom beat me to Carole King...so here is the Searchers cover of September Gurls from 1981 (which I heard before I heard the original):


and while I'm at it (and as long as it came up next, anyway) here's the Replacements live version:

some splendid contributions so far,
to expand upon the 4 (seasonal) entries.
larry / bonnie - especially appreciate the frazey ford song.
one of the languid numbers on her solo 'indian ocean' album, which is a delight.
a true soulful album recorded in memphis,
with al green's musicians aboard.

i've loved her voice since it was part of the blend of the be good tanyas
who first played brighton in their early touring days
(and returned and returned, such that one of the collective of promoters,
the gilded palace of sin, upped and married one of 'em and wizzed off to canada!).
have a listen to their albums.
you may also like the 'supergroup' po' girl who are related.

i can't think of a 'september' song from them
but here's the scattered leaves' from their third(?) album ,
which is sort of northern hemisphere season appropriate
(though mentions november - but, 'what's done is done...'

I'll "fall" in to your September to remember week, Cindy:

GOLD -- September, E W & F -- Somehow it never gets old, no matter when or how often I hear it. Anyone else see "Night At The Museum"? It featured in the end scenes before closing credits. (Couldn't find a proper clip on YT of it exactly -- much to the relief of some, I guess). 

SILVER -- Wake Me Up When September Ends, Green Day -- One of the 2 or 3 songs of theirs I like. "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" is another,  "Good Riddance (Time of your Life" a distant 3rd).  

BRONZE -- September Morn, Neil Diamond -- Not one of my more favoured ND tracks, though it does come to mind with the month. 

TIN -- KTSA, BBs -- Alive?!? Nope, as far as I'm concerned, this song needs a DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) order. It just leaves me cold. 

No mention of September, but here's S & G with a chirpy song about another depressing thought of September - leaves changing...and all that raking!:

Two classy women, starting with an obvious one.  The lovely September, from Sweden. (September is the name of the girl if you're not sure) "Cry For You" (2005).  This is an acoustic version from a few years ago.



And Candy Dulfer, smooth and sweet and saxy, taking me back to a certain week last year where some of us got a little funky with our bad selves.
