Come September

No autumn breeze
No falling leaves
Not even time for birds to fly to southern skies

The verse above is how Stevie Wonder describes the month of September in "I Just Called To Say I Love You"

September is a very special month. I have two siblings whose birthdays are in this month. Besides it turns out that some of my closest friends over the years are also September born.

Did you know about the 60's movie called 'Come September'. Heard the title tune played on an EP or what were the small vinyl records that turn much faster @45rpm.

September turns out to be a much sung-of month (possibly after December). Any guesses why? While you think, maybe we should boogie.

Earth, Wind and Fire may have sung 'September', but September is important not because of the elements but due to the 'weather'. My sister whose birthday was yesterday (1st September) lives in Canada. September there is the last month of summer. Children have just gotten back to school after the holidays. And the shorter days and the falling leaves get many singers in a pensive mood. This is Willie Nelson with the "September Song".

My brother whose birthday is later in the month on 21st September recently moved to Under Down Under (New Zealand). September has a happier song there (sung by Leah Flanagan).

If you're in India (or more particularly in Mumbai), September is the month of street music with a string of festivals across religions. While some communities bid farewell to the monsoons with immersions at the major beaches, the Catholic community celebrates the birthday of Mother Mary with pilgrims thronging the Mount Mary Church in Bandra.

It doesn't matter where in the world you are or what the seasons are changing too, have a musical September.
