Win Nick’s Voucher


The year is flying by.

    US – Please – live at Rotterdam
    Because it’s the only one I can think of, and like all their songs it’s not brilliant until you hear it live

  2. LeopoldGloom

    I was going to say January Hymn by the Decemberists as it’s a tragically beautful song, utterly wonderful, and paints a very vivid if bleak and sad winter scence(marginally better than their June Hymn) but the correct answers are

    December, 1963 by the Four Seasons and September by Earth, Wind & Fire. 2 nailed on classics.

    Barbara Dickson’s January February
    A lady who never really got to stand out from Elaine Page

    Interesting fact – the writer, Alan Tarney, is more associated with Cliff Richard, The Shadows and Leo Sayer

    But he was pretty much responsible all of A-Ha’s hits in the 80s

        I just sing and dance along Bert
        I leave the dissecting to the lads leaning against the wall with warm beer in their pint glasses

    “I Am A Rock” by Simon and Garfunkel – the opening line “A winter’s day, in a deep and dark December”.
    A song that struck a chord with my teenage angst when I first heard it – it’s just one of those classic ‘soundtrack to your life’ type songs that I’m sure generation after generation rediscover

    Earth Wind and Fire – September
    Was singing it last Saturday night. Disco me up Sheila

    ♫ Do you remember the 21st night of September?
    love was changing the mind of pretenders
    while chasing the clouds away ♫

          1. Spaghetti Hoop

            Damn, mixed them up. Yes – the Springhill one from the LLS (with the mike problem). Redhill one alright too.

    I wonder if I can get all the months named (doing this without Google)? I have to admit my favourite is the Simon and Garfunkel tune April, Come She Will (which mentions also May, June, July, August and September, and therefore covers 6 of the months right off the bat :) ).

    January by Pilot is a fun one to bop to.
    February Song by Josh Groban. Not bad, but a bit dreary, just like February :)
    Waters of March is one I recall, but not the singer. Nice Latin American feel.
    April, Come She Will (obviously, and saving me until September :) )
    October Song by the wonderful Amy Winehouse.
    November Rain by Guns & Roses is probably the most depressing of them.A better November one is the one by Auto Da Fey (November, November)
    Though not in a title, I Am A Rock by Simon and Garfunkel (again) for December

  7. Specific Gravity

    November has tied me
    To an old dead tree
    Get word to April
    To rescue me
    November’s cold chain
    Made of wet boots and rain
    And shiny black ravens
    On chimney smoke lanes
    November seems odd
    You’re my firing squad

    Tom Waits

    Papa was a Rolling Stone by the Temptations.

    ‘It was the third of September’ was always changed to …’it was the 10th of December’ in my youthful head as that’s my birthday.

    The same happens for Wheels of the Bus which always ends with ‘on the 10th day of December’.

    Galaxie 500 – 4th of July
    “I wrote a poem on a dog biscuit”… Probably the only time I’ve known the canine comestible mentioned in popular culture. The song takes me back to the autumn of 1990 when the song was released, and a move from Dublin to London via Edinburgh. Buying the CD single and the album it’s from (“This Is Our Music”) in the original Fopp record shop on Cockburn Street in Edinburgh. That beautiful hilly winding street, still a favourite to this day, and the biting cold of northern Britain.

    1. Slightly Bemused

      Hmm, 4th of July, eh?

      What about the Irish Rover:
      On the fourth of July Eighteen Hundred and Six
      We set sail from the sweet Cobh of Cork.

      A great tune :)

  10. Cool_Hand_Lucan

    Gone Till November by Wyclef Jean.

    After his stint with The Fugees and before his failed presidential bid in Haiti, WJ had a couple of banging hits and this was one of them. A beautiful lament about missing your loved ones whilst on the road. He also nabbed Bob Dylan to appear in the video. His duet with The Rock, ‘It Doesn’t Matter’ is also a class chune.

  11. Daisy Chainsaw

    Once in a Lifetime – Talking Heads “And you May find yourself living in a shotgun shack…” (wink emoji)
    Sign o the Times – Prince “September, my cousin tried reefer for the very first time – now he’s doing horse, it’s June”

    1. f_lawless

      The last time I saw them was quite a few sleeps ago upstairs in the White Horse inn, December 1991
      – apparently, it’s the same spot that Captian William Bligh, (‘God damn your eyes, man! You turned your back on me!’), is said to have rented for a year in 1800.These days it’s probably packed full of boxes of Starbucks supplies. End of ramble.

  12. Learphollach

    The sweet September rain – When Love Breaks Down, Prefab Sprout.

    And on the second of September I knew I found a friend – Wake up (Sleeping) in your arms, The Saw Doctors

  13. scottser

    That’s life
    That’s what all the people say
    You’re riding high in April
    Shot down in May…

    FFS even Dave Lee Roth does a cool version of it

  14. Otis Blue

    Third of May – Fleet Foxes

    Mr November – The National

    Ágúst – Ólafur Arnalds

    April 5th – Talk Talk

    December – The Waterboys

  15. Specific Gravity

    Here she comes
    Silent in her sound
    Here she comes
    Fresh upon the ground
    Come gentle spring
    Come at winter’s end
    Gone is the pallor from a promise that’s nature’s gift
    Waiting for the color of spring
    Let me breathe
    Let me breathe the color of spring
    Here she comes
    Laughter in her kiss
    Here she comes
    Shame upon her lips
    Come wanton spring
    Come for birth you live
    Youth takes it’s bow before the summer the seasons bring
    Waiting for the color of spring
    Let me
    Let me breathe
    Let me breathe you

    April 5th, Talk Talk

      1. Otis Blue

        His run of albums – The Colour of Spring; Spirit of Eden; Laughing Stock and his solo album – are without peer in modern music.

        He was an awesome talent. And then he was gone.
