View Full Version : A song for every month. Please participate.
Ok, so I am putting together a compilation with songs for every month of the year.
I would like everyone to participate and post your sugestions.
Any song will do, as long as the tittle clearly states the month of the year.
I already have a few, but would like you to post yours anyway.
I want to keep the compilation as closer together as possible as far as music genre is concern, such as the likes of soft rock, pop, etc...
But again any song will do.
October by U2
December by Static-X
What are yours?
January - Pilot
September - Earth Wind and Fire
Lots of song writers/singers seem to like September:
September Morn - Neil Diamond
September Song - Willie Nelson
It Might as Well Rail Until September - Carol King?
For December, you could have Oh What a Night by The Four Seasons as it is also commonly known as (or might actually be called) December 1963.
For April - Little April Showers, from Bambie
For May - how about Maggie May - Rod Stewart.
Yeah, that's great stuff.
keep em coming...
I've been looking on youtube, but the search is harder than I thought.
I'm starting to wonder if I'm gonna find a song for every month of the year...?!
There's that song about Gathering Nuts In May & "the merry merry month of may"
October by U2
November Rain Guns & Roses
Calender Girl by Neil Sedaka has the whole lot.
January, February - Barbara Dickson
June Is Busting Out All Over - Rogers and Hammerstein
December Will Be Magic Again - Kate Bush
...how could I forget Kate!
MARCH ----I remember Iron Maiden did one called Ides of March but I think it was just on an album (that historical creation aka an LP! ) - not out as a single.
DECEMBER --- there's bound to be some twee little seasonal song with that month in its title
Jean Michel Jarre did a song called 'September'. It's not actually named after the month but after somebody called Dulce September.
I'm almost sure it's on the Revolutions album. :)
And there's also the Swedish dance act called 'September' too, so I suppose anything by her would do.
Thank you for all the quick responses, this is great stuff.
I have to liste to all of them... which I can't find all of them.
There is still June and few others left to find.
I think you will find this webpage very useful:-
Songfacts - Songs with Months in the Title (http://www.songfacts.com/category:songs_with_months_in_the_title.php)
Has anyone looked through the ones posted so far to see which ( if any )months are missing?
Sighs resignedly - "Oh well , best get cracking then"
We were short of July and August but they were both in the list from Kiop
These are tricky but how about
Hot August night-Neil Diamond
'Winter in July' was a hit for Bomb the Bass
You could finish the compilation with The Calender song by The Trinindad oil co or The perfect year by Dina Carroll.
We gonna try for seven more?
Days of the week in song titles...
Friday I'm in love - Cure
Boomtown Rats..I Don't Like Mondays

Unfortunatelly, I'm not gonna like every song I hear, so keep em comin' guys.
March of the Pigs- Nine Inch Nails
April Skies- Jesus & Mary Chain
May you never- John Martyn
