Jukebox Saturday Night Entry for September 6th, 2014: The Rainy Night Around the World Edition

For this stormy night in September ...


"September in the Rain" as performed by the Chairman himself, Frank Sinatra, on his album Sinatra's Swingin' Session!!! (1961)

The song was written by the prodigious but underappreciated composer and lyricist Harry Warren and his long-time collaborator, Al Dubin, and it was published in 1937. Many famous artists have done versions of its over the years.

"You Make My Dreams (Come True)" by Hall and Oates from their Voices album (1980*)

*This song might have been re-released as a single the following year in 1982. Whatever the case, I never get tired of Hall and Oates. And, please, no comments on how Oates looks these days.

And now for something Eurodance old-school ...


"Around the World (La La La La La)" by ATC from the group's Planet Pop release (2000/2001*)

*Both dates are given. It appears that the song was released as a single in 2000 and then included on the Planet Pop album in 2001. Also, ATC apparently stands "A Touch of Class," though which name came first is a bit uncertain.

It's a strange video, that's for sure. I think that's partly because the group itself is such a strange foursome. Of note, the dark-haired guy is Joey (Joseph) Murray, who is from New Zealand and is actually now an actor.
