September will be another month that i'm really looking forward to come. yes, it is still August but let me share you this song by Kirk Franklin. it is the carrier single of the album "Interpretations : Celebrating the music of Earth Wind and Fire".
this is a revised version of "September" by Earth Wind and Fire. here's a link to the video. the lyrics is simply amazing.

Kirk Franklin

Do You Remember, When it was like September?
Before You Grew Cold Like December
And All You Saw were Cloudy Days

And I Remember, That Day When You gave up
You Stopped hurting Cuz You Remembered
The Season It Won't Last Always

Ba De Ya, Tell Me You Remember
Ba De Ya, When your Heart Felt Like September
Still Had The Joy, and God Was Just A Prayer Away

Ba Doo Doop Ba Doop, Ba Doo Doop Ba Doop
(I Can See Clearly Now)
Ba Doo Doop Ba Doop, Ba Doo Doop Ba Doop
(The Sun Is Much Brighter Now)
Ba Doo Doop Ba Doop
(The Season It Won't Last Always)

Seems Like Forever
You Said When Will My Life Get Better
I'm Tired Of Stormy Weather,
But The Sun Always Shine In May

So Just Remember,
The Next Time You Feel Like December
Remember That Night In September,
When God Wipe All your Tears Away

Ba De Ya, Tell Me You Remember
Ba De Ya, When Your Heart Feels Like September
Still Had The Joy, and God Was Just A Prayer Away (2x)

Everybody Has A September In Their Life.
You Know The First Time You Heart Gods Voice
So You Felt His Love
So No Mather What Season You End Up Right Now
after Winter Comes Springs...
So If You Love My Jesus Help Me Sing

Ba De Ya, Tell Me You Remember
Ba De Ya, In Your Heart Feels Like September
Still Had The Joy, and God Was Just A Prayer Away (2x)

Ba De Ya De Ya De Ya
( I can see clearly now)
Ba De Ya De Ya De Ya
(The sun is much brighter now)
Ba De Ya De Ya De Ya
(the season it wont last always)

(Ba De Ya De Ya De Ya) Ba Doo Doop Ba Doop, Ba Doo Doop Ba Doop
(I Can See Clearly Now)
(Ba De Ya De Ya De Ya) Ba Doo Doop Ba Doop, Ba Doo Doop Ba Doop
(The Sun Is Much Brighter Now)
(Ba De Ya De Ya De Ya) Ba Doo Doop Ba Doop,
(The Season It Won't Last Always)

happy birthday to "iggy"!

hanep sa kanta kuya dong!hehe. familiar ako sa kanta pero di ko alam yung title. i actually thought it's a ballad until i read the third stanza. naalala ko yung "ba de ya" tapos yun kinanta ko na talaga. hehe.

first time i heard the updated song, i thought it was nice but maybe it's just me, i sometimes think today's musicians are running out of melodies. but then again, it's a nice way to let the newer generation discover the old gems.

anyway, the "ber" months are coming, like it or not :-)

OMG, September coming? Time passes fast. I am aging and I think I need an eye check up cause I spotted a flying saucer in my skywatch today. :)

stan said...

Come sep I move into my new pad! It's a superbly exciting period after this current hectic schedule of work and attending to renovations and purchases for the house.

The song is a remake rite?

Always looking forward on this month. It's a sign that the "hot" months are over at papasok na ang tag-lamig. Brrrrrr.

GingGoy said...

ayaw ko ng september kasi maririnig ko na naman mga songs of the season daw of an over-commercialized holiday bereft of its true meaning :(

I love Earth, Wind and Fire. I watched them in concert when they went here a few years ago. September is one of their greatest songs that I love.

Thanks for sharing this revised version. I'll check out the video.

Looks like Baguio CIty at night to me. You see, We spent New Year of 2008 in Baguio somewhere in Magsaysay area and the view is just amazing because of the hill below. Really looks like this except that of coarse there are a lot of fireworks. T'was amazing....
