The Sounds of Autumn: Day 1/1: Monday September 23, 2019: ‘Autumn Song”- Manic Street Preachers. Summer ended and Autumn began at 3:50 am this morning. I would probably rank Autumn as my favorite season- since it comes right after the only one I don’t care that much for- summer. I like fall weather- hopefully it will arrive soon. As far as the songs go- I thought a little about it- do I do Autumn songs-or just move on. Summer songs get a lot of love and attention so I think why not do Autumn- I figure I can come up with a song a day for 90 days- until Winter arrives at 11:19pm on December 21st.
My first song for the autumn may be my favorite- “Autumn Song” by Manic Street Preachers. I first heard this song ten years ago on the Sirius XM radio show Celtic Crush. The first time I heard this song I loved it- and it also got me interested in the Manic Street Preachers- a group big in the UK but certainly one that doesn’t get much love in the United States. Released as a single in the UK “Autumn Song” peaked at #10.
