The song of the day for Monday, September 25, 2023, is “September Song.”
About This Song
“September Song” was written by Kirt Weill and Maxwell Anderson for the Broadway musical Knickerbocker Holiday, which opened in 1938 starring Walter Huston. Huston had requested a solo song in the production, so Weill and Anderson wrote “September Song” with careful attention to Huston’s limited singing skills. In spite of a limited range, the poignant quality of the lyrics and the charming tune make for a quite pleasant song that has found great popularity among singers, including Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, and even Lou Reed.
