...well, they walk into convenience stores in Ok-lahoma to buy beer, without shirts on.  Not that I'm advocating that.

since Larry gave us some Lesley Gore, thought I would turn this into my 'feel good' post of the day:

With solid blue 17 states, one candidate has 272 already (with 270 needed).
v. the other person's 19 sure red ones. 

that means, even without Ohio, without Florida, without N.C., without Virginia, without Penn, without Colo., without Iowa, one candidate is already there.

Strawbs - Autumn

Andy Partridge - Autumn Comes

Hottest summer on record here....but I have yet to turn the A/C on this year. Just never felt the need for it.

I'm not a real billionaire, but I play one on TV!

There are many reasons to feel good tonight, including the temperature outside.

"Autumn Leaves" began as a 1945 French song "Les Feuilles mortes" ("The Dead Leaves"). Edith Piaf sings it in both languages. I think it sounds better in French.

Milo Greene is not a person, it's a five-person group. "Autumn Tree" is from their first album (2012). They have a distinctive sound.

My votes.

GOLD - Green Day.  I was keen enough on Greenday to buy a couple of their CD's in the mid 90's, including the excellent "Insomniac".  They lived with The Beatie Boys in my car for a long time and both bands got good rotation.  Very much lost interest in them by the time this song came out, and I wouldn't put it in my top ten (or even fifteen) Green Day songs.  However, it beats everything else this week quite easily. Completely unaware until now of the association with 9/11.

SILVER - Earth Wind and Fire.  And not just because it mentions that silver fox Tom Tobben's birthday.  [cool]  Nice upbeat sound and seventies vibe going on.  Reminds me of my parents Sold Gold Hits record collection, white flares, shiny platform shoes, and fondue.  (And the Queen's corgis and multicoloured jandals.  Don't ask, all I can say is I was little.)

BRONZE - TBB.  I tried to get into it, but the best thing about it was the excellent picture on the clip. Anyone know who drew that?  Has a hollow sound that I don't like and feels paint by numbers.  Tragedy.

TIN - Neil.  Struggled to play it the whole way through, as a matter of fact.  Nothing wrong with a little bit of Neil Diamond ... until September arrives (and some long forgotten place).  My belief is that if September mornings make him feel that way, he should just keep it to himself until maybe mid-October, when he's out of his funk.  

All day this line has been running through my head. "Do you remember, baby, last September..." Here's a kiwi version of the Buddy Holly classic.  Mark Williams (1975).

And one more from way down here.  Mi Sex.  "Living in September" (1980).

Thanks Cindy.

My votes for this week's battle:

GOLD:  Beach Boys for Keeping the Summer Alive.  It took me a while to warm up to this one, but now I love it.  Can't beat the Carl Wilson lead vocal and the summer feel to it.

SILVER:  Neil Diamond for September Morn.  This melody has stuck in my head all week! When I was reading up on it, I read that Neil Diamond and his wife divorced and it was the biggest divorce settlement in history at 150 million to her.  He said, "She was worth every penny".  He must've still loved her very much and this song gives the feeling of a loss of someone he still loved.

BRONZE:  Green Day for Wake Me Up When September Ends.  September can be a wonderful month with lots of great times and beautiful weather, but also some terrible events, like 9/11.  As I said before.. bittersweet.  This is a not so 'run of the mill' type of song and a very pretty one that's not overplayed.

TIN/PEWTER:  Earth, Wind & Fire for September.  It's a very good song and certainly has sentiment for me, but waaaaaay overplayed!

My final answer.

"They're not gonna catch us. We're on a mission from God".

GOLD Earth Wind and Fire
BRONZE Beach Boys  

TIN Green Day
Don't mind this one even though I'm not a fan of punk or this guy's voice generally.
However, I do quite like this which is often on the playlist of a local cafe - had to Google who it was.

ok I'll do it.... (Aussie rules football, everyone)  featuring lots of the mighty 'brown and gold' Hawks,
Except that the 'Grand Final' (kind of Superbowl equivalent) is in October again.

Hi, Cindy

Gold –Neil Diamond - September Morn – I always like a little Neil Diamond.  I don’t know about talking to a chair, though.

Silver – Beach Boys - Keeping the Summer Alive.  Better than the others.

Bronze – Green Day - Wake Me Up When September Ends.  Only half good.

Tin - Earth, Wind & Fire – September.  OK, but just not my style.

That’s MY final answer.

I try hard to be strong
But sometimes I fail myself
And after all I've promised you
So faithfully
You still believe in me
I wanna cry . . .”

sitting in a park in sunny brighton,
an open air theatre
in late september sunshine,
about to watch the(stripped down) brighton beach boys
play to a happy crowd (plenty of kids along).
ideal (better than any choice this week,
sorry to say, but...).

tin: 'september'
- much wind, no fire.
my failing, no doubt, but i could never get the hang of this lot...

bronze: 'september morn'
- mourning has broken.
If you've heard his 'now-i'm-old-you -can -take-me-seriously'album,
you'll know he's not 'alf bad.
at times
this wasn't one of those times.

silver: 'keeping the summer alive'
- if only barely.
matchless, as in
bit of a hotchy podgy lame attempt to catch a'fire,
when the wick was well worn
and the spark was on its way out
(just about the best track on that album, though,
which i can't claim to have played all the way through
in one sitting).

gold :'wake me up before you go go, er...'
- rarely would I consider green day to come up trumps.
used to consider them a cartoon band.
still do, but a (now ( long lived one.
but, this week, they rise to the top of the flotsam'n'jetsam.

ah, the chaps are about to start...
'holding back autumn...'
as they've just introduced 'cali-girls').

Agreed, Deb #1. Whenever I hear "I Am, I Said", I'm reminded of American humor columnist, Dave Barry, suggesting "so I ate a pear" as one of a few alternates (which would make about as much sense). Tracked it down -just before"Other Versions" sections here:

Don't think we've heard from Sinatra yet. Two from his 1965 album September of My Years:

"September of My Years"

"This Is All I Ask" ("As I approach the prime of my life...")

A Great Big Pile of Leaves, "Back to School", You're Always On My Mind, 2013

On the other hand: The Ramones, "I Don't Want To Grow Up", Adios Amigos, 1995

Thanks Cindy

DAN, you win. That's my favourite September song. And I was there for a lot of those moments.

Thanks DAN for posting the aussie rules football song.  Hillarious!  (I know, it's not meant to be.)

Could those uniforms be any tighter?   Jeez Louise.
