For the first day of fall: "September Song"

A drizzly, foggy, muggy day here in Manhattan — a perfect setting for a little black-and-white Durante, in a melancholy mood.   This rendition of “September Song,” from 1955, remains a classic.

  1. I prefer the less staccato versions others have done, but Jimmy Durante deserves to be remembered, and this is a fine song.

    Thanks for the post, Deacon Greg.

  2. Counting down in these shortening days to the end of a season and the end of a working career, Jimmy’s song seems to have deeper meaning for me today. Thanks, Greg.

    God bless.
