The votes are in.

Last Friday, with a €20 Currys PC World voucher redeemable in any Currys store on offer, I asked you to name your favourite tune that refers to a month of the year.

You answered in your dozens.

But there could be only one winner.

Third Place:

September Gurls by Big Star

Andy Pipkin writes:

“Just brilliant from the opening riff till the end! Big Star at their best! Enjoy!”

Runner-up:

April Come She Will by Simon & Garfunkel

Gustavo Fring writes:

“I love the guitar tune and the subtle harmonies of their two voices. Perfection.”

Winner:

April In Paris by Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong

Papi writes:

“Ella Fitzgerald, baby. I naturally think of this one as I have grown up with it played again and again with my dad. And even though we were geekholing up all year with our duo all year, putting on shows ( for basically mostly ourselves ), April hit hard because my dad’s birthday is in last day of April.

“Which obviously meant, when growing up , we had to interrupt the first barbecue of the year with this song on repeat. Every year. To everyone’s delight. So it being the end of April, it came just naturally to me. Not this year then, but next year, we will bother the crap out of neighborhoods with this. Out of tune. Obviously.”

Nick says: Thanks all.
