    Did someone (GB, perhaps) mention videos? :)

    AUTUMN IN NEW YORK, 1934; I like this version--Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong

    "Autumn in New York
    Why does it seem so inviting
    Autumn in New York
    It spells the thrill of first nighting..."

    AUTUMN OF MY LIFE, 1968, Bobby Goldsboro

    "...But in the autumn of my years I noticed the tears
    And I knew that our life was in the past
    Though I tried to pretend, I knew it was the end
    For the autumn of my life had come at last..."

    AUTUMN LEAVES, 1945, this version by Nat King Cole

    "The falling leaves drift by the window
    The autumn leaves of red and gold
    I see your lips, the summer kisses
    The sun-burned hands I used to hold..."

    SEPTEMBER MORN', 1979, Neil Diamond

    "September morn'
    We danced until the night
    Became a brand new day
    Two lovers playing scenes
    From some romantic play
    September morning
    Still can make me feel that way

    BLUE AUTUMN, 1967, Bobby Goldsboro

    "Blue autumn
    Falling leaves of red and gold
    Pretty colors, I am told
    But I see only shades of blue
    Because I'm losing you..."


    Can y'all tell I'm in an "autumn frame of mind" today?? Days are getting shorter, leaves on the trees are turning colors, temps here have been in the 40's at night, 60's during the day.

    I like these songs.

    Let's add some more fall/autumn songs????????? If you name the song, I can try to find the video to post for you!

    OK, Diane, I'll fall in line with your plan.

    September Song, by Kurt Weill who wrote The Three Penny Opera from
    whence cometh the song Mack the Knife.

    September in the Rain by Harry Warren who wrote lots of songs for the
    movies. Like 42nd Street, Shuffle Off to Buffalo, You're My Everything, etc.

    There's a song on Youtube titled Autumn by Paolo Nutini. The
    young fellow performing same (presumably the composer) looks
    and sounds like he's drugged or falling asleep. I guess he appeals
    to much younger listeners.

    I also found a song called Forever Autumn. The song isn't much, but
    it has gorgeous pictures.

    And a song called Indian Summer is likewise pretty wishy washy.

    And, of course, there are several hymns that celebrate Thanksgiving.
    Come Ye Thankful People, Come. Raise the Song of Harvest Home.

    We Gather together to ask the Lord's Blessing.

    For the Beauty of the the Earth, Lord of All to Thee we raise,
    This our hymn of grateful praise.

    Hi Rock!

    Here are the videos:

    SEPTEMBER SONG, written by Kurt Weill 1938, sung by Walter Huston

    "... Oh, it's a long long while from May to December
    But the days grow short when you reach September
    When the autumn weather turns the leaves to flame
    And you ain't got time for waiting game ..."

    SEPTEMBER IN THE RAIN, written by Harry Warren 1937, sung by James Melton

    "My daydreams lie buried in Autumn leaves,
    They're covered with Autumn rain.
    The time is sweet September,
    The place a shady lane;
    I'm riding the wings of an Autumn breeze,
    Back to my memories ..."

    Happy listening! Glad you fell in line with my plan! LOL

    Diane, Good songs! :) I think you and Rock have covered just about all of them, I can't think of any that haven't been mentioned. Maybe we could do some winter songs next month. Not Christmas songs, just things to do with winter/snow/cold weather and such. GB

    Here's the song that Rock mentioned, with the beautiful pictures --

    FOREVER AUTUMN, 1986, Justin Hayward (formerly lead singer of The Moody Blues)

    "... I watch the birds fly south across the autumn sky
    And one by one they disappear
    I wish that I was flying with them
    Now you're not here..."


    We'll have to remember to start a "cold weather" thread next month, or so! :)

    Diane, ready for the temp to go up to 73 degrees today! :D
