Ken, thanks for ruining the end of Knickerbocker Holiday for me.....now I'll NEVER go see it.

Seriously, nuggets all here. I prefer the gentle classicism of the elder singers, like Huston over the the Harmonicats or James Brown, but then I'm getting into the July or August of my years.

illfolks has posted the chevalier version at: http://illfolks.blogspot.com/

Man the James brown version is brilliant.

Brown's is brilliant, but Lenya's version has been bringing me to tears for years.

I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one driven to tears by this number.

It seems wrong somehow that there were 100+ versions of "Stairway to Heaven" collected and only 38 of "September Song".

And if Maxwell Anderson thought FDR was a fascist what would he make of the current crew in power?

Andy

Great compilation of September songs! I just missed the version with Pascal Comelade and Robert Wyatt. It's pretty unusual.

Liam Baldwin

Brilliant post, thank you. I think I enjoyed this one even more than the 79 versions of popcorn:

More!

How about the Willie Nelson version? It really is nice and gentle.

"September Song" is my theme for my MySpace Page for this month. I've put Mel Torme's version of the song on my page: http://www.myspace.com/angustcat

PJ Harvey, as well.

Joan Nelson

You forgot Liberace. He has a nice instrumental of September Song.

Lou Reed has made another version, more sad, slow and long that the one you've uploaded here. It's available on "Sepember song, the music of Kurt Weill" (Sony music). It's a beautiful cover.

My wife and I have been married 51 plus years and our favorite song is Stan Kenton's version of September Song.
Scrolling through and listening to your melodies, bring back a lot of memories. Two versions of the song missing, and not listed, one by Jackie Gleason, and one by Willie Nelson. Both are unique, but we really like any version of this great song.
Sincerely yours,
Tom King

A year and a month too late, I found a French translation of September Song called "J'ai Peur de l'Automne (September Song)" by K. Weill and M. Vaucaire, 1948. "(I'm Afraid of Autumn)". It was taken from a 78 RPM and transferred to vinyl, performed by French Artist Jean Sablon. Quite nice in it's simplicity of production, reeking of the 40's. If we ever have another September Song orgy, I'll be sure to get it to you, Ken.

Feine Seite ;-)

In my research to compile a list of as many versions of September Song as possible I came across your list. I have tried to MP3 the songs but have been unsuccesful. Can you help out an old sailor?
Peace,

DON PRUSAKOWSKI

LISTENED TO JAMES BROWN VERSION. SORRY, NO COMPARISON WITH WALTER HUSTON'S VERSION. THE REAL FEELING IS NOT THERE, NOT TO ME, AN OLD CLASSIST WHO HAS A SPECIAL FEELING FOR THIS SONG. IT IS SOMETHING THAT STAYS WITH ME (HUSTON'S VERSION) FOR OVER 70 YEARS. BUT THEN, TO EACH HIS OWN.

MIchael Hansen.

i could be wrong, but is this the same "September song" covered by Jimmy Durante & Willie Nelson?

Someone mentioned missing Pascal Comelade's rather odd version, so here it is:

I'm looking for an instrumental version of September song, with guitar and vibes playing in the background. I think it came out in the 80's. It wasn't on your list. Anyone have a lead?

Little Rhody

the cheesy animated version moved here: http://www.animusic.us/index.html

How did the Rosemary Clooney/Marion version fail to make this list? It is both of these woman at their best!

I am positive I heard a recording of this song by Leslie Hutchinson. Is my memory playing me tricks?
