Helllloooooo, September! September is my favourite month. The weather is friendly in that glorious place between too hot and too cold (whatever too cold even means. Sounds mythical to me.) September acts as a friendlier New Year than the shouty New Year in January. But really, more things start anew in September – school, arts programs, sports leagues, and hobby-style classes… It’s an exciting and inspiring time of year. So why, then, are most of the September songs so sad? I’m lookin at you, Neil Diamond (September Morn) and Fiona Apple (Pale September), and Natalie Imbruglia (Come September). Even you, Kool and the Gang (September Love) – Less pitypatparty, more Celebration, pls!
So we’re taking our musical cues from Earth, Wind, and Fire, as we do every year. And we’re freestyling wildly from there. I know, this is your surprised face.
