What month do you think has the most songs written about it? I think it’s got to be either April or September. For April, you’ve got “I Remember April” and “April In Paris”. For September, you’ve got “September Song” by Kurt Weill, “Back In September” (from “The Fantasticks”), the Earth Wind and Fire song “September”, and “September Gurls”. So I guess September wins in a way, but…the two April songs are both jazz standards so they should count double. And “riding high in April, shot down in May” has no September analog.
What are some other good songs in which names of months are featured prominently? Aguas de Marco and Beach Baby come to mind. And I guess I forgot the Neil Diamond song “September Morn”, which I feel is the most Neil Diamond of any song.
I guess Maggie May mentions September too, so maybe September wins. But I think April is at worst a close second.
