September Songs

Its autumn. The days are growing shorter. The nights are growing cooler. Its time to reflect on times past, choices weve made, and how weve grown. And what better way to do all that than with a soundtrack?! So weve come up with some songs you might want to throw on a CD to underscore your autumnal melancholy. If youre leaving behind a love affair or just having a hard time saying goodbye to summer, you cant go wrong with: Summer Fling by kd lang Viva Forever by the Spice Girls The Good Times Are Over by Caviar If We Never Meet Again by Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers When Will I See You Again by The Three Degrees Summers Over by Spoilsport The Dance by Garth Brooks Things Will Never Be the Same by Roxette When All is Said and Done by Abba Verdi Cries by 10,000 Maniacs If youre mourning an old love, you can take solace with: Strawberry Wine by Deana Carter The Chill of an Early Fall George Strait (You and Me) We Wanted It All by Frank Sinatra The Song Remembers When by Trisha Yearwood Saying Goodbye to a Friend by Suzy Bogguss If youre simply feeling old (whether or not you actually are) and youre looking back on life regretfully or even just sentimentally, you should check out: Both Sides Now by Paul Young and Clannad (yep, the Joni Mitchell classic) Back When We Were Beautiful by Matraca Berg The Ballad of Lucy Jordan by Marianne Faithfull (the odds are this will cheer you up because your life probably isnt as dead as Lucys) Just Another Day by Henry Lee Summer Being Boring by Merrill Bainbridge (yes, the Pet Shop Boys did it first, but Bainbridges version is so much more heartbreaking) Moon River by Jerry Butler And to pull out all the stops, you might as well just grab the September of My Years album by Frank Sinatra. Each song is about reflection, regret, and lost youth. Standouts are It Was a Very Good Year, When the Wind Was Green, and September of My Years. And, of course, summer songs are even more moving now that its gone, so to keep your mix from becoming too maudlin, toss in: Summer by Lisa Loeb Summer Girls by LFO Summer Nights by Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta (come on, you know you know the words) Perfect Day by Hoku
