November Music

I know everyone knows “holiday music” — all the Christmas carols and holiday tunes we all know and love.

But I actually have “November music” too. … Do you?

For me, “November music” is almost anything by James Taylor, because we used to listen to “Carolina on My Mind,” “Sweet Baby James,” “Something in the Way She Moves,” “Walking Man,” etc. all through fall and especially when we’d go apple-picking in Oak Glen when the kids were small.

And “November music” is also anything from the “When Harry Met Sally” movie — “It Had to Be You,” “Love Is Here To Stay,” “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore,” “I Could Write A Book,” and more.

And “November music” is┬áprobably anything by Ray Charles.

So I went in to buy a new CD for my car for November and stumbled across that Tony Bennet Duets one. And I really like it! He does a cute one with John Mayer (“One More for the Road”), Lady Gaga (“The Lady Is a Tramp”), and others. All those old standards, and they all have that When-Harry-Met-Sally feel. …

I guess that’s what it is: I like to hear music in November that almost sounds like holiday music (because it’s by the same classic holiday performers — Dean Martin, Ray Charles, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett), but isn’t quite holiday yet. …

Do you have “November music”?

Here’s Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga for this fine November day…
