* IT'S THE 1ST OF SEPTEMBER *

Do you remember the song, "September" by Earth, Wind, & Fire?

I never could understand the lyrics in the chorus, and before the days of the internet I had no idea what they were actually singing...Turns out, I was singing along the same "words" that they were! Ba de ya! Who knew?!

I just love that song. It's so joyful to sing and dance to:

Ba de ya, say do you remember
Ba de ya, dancing in September
Ba de ya, never was a cloudy day





Happy September!

  1. Hey you had the lyrics right. Some lyrics it is not possible to understand. Bob Dylan's words are so powerful, I recall playing a song over and over to understand the lyrics, some times to no avail.

  2. And a very Happy September to you too. Not a song that I knew. Unsurprising for a musical moron.

  3. Hello Becky, that is a wonderful son and perfect for September! You brought back memories of when I first moved to Vancouver so many years ago and saw this group in a now demolished nightclub called "The Cave". It was the one and only time I've been to such a club with sparkling little lights like stars on the ceiling and a funky band called Earth, Wind & Fiah! lol.

  5. I am so looking forward to crisp clear days, blue skies, and hot soup. Fall is my favorite season of the year.

  6. I don't recall ever hearing anything by Earth Wind and Fire. I listened a little bit, but don't really like them.

  7. Happy September to you, as well, Becky. I love that song and posted it on my personal FB page Sept. 1. Great minds think alike, right? Hope you are doing well. Looking forward to autumn, that's for sure.
