Five Best...Songs About April

#5. "I Just Called to Say I Love You" by Stevie Wonder

"No April rain
No flowers bloom
No wedding Saturday within the month of June
But what it is, is something true
Made up of these three words that I must say to you."

#4. "George E. Porge" by Les Claypool and The Holy Mackerel

"Now baby's breath and orchids are a lethal combination.
When you get that girl, you got to go
And finger pie in April leads to penetration...
But June, she's apt to take it kinda slow."

#3. "November" by Tom Waits

"November has tied me
To an old dead tree
Get word to April,
To rescue me.”

#2. "What's Good" by Lou Reed

"What good is seeing eye chocolate
What good's a computerized nose
And what good was cancer in April
Why no good - no good at all."

#1. "April in Paris" by Frank Sinatra

"Till April in Paris, chestnuts in blossom
Holiday tables under the trees
April in Paris, this is a feeling
That no one can ever reprise."

Joshua,
"April in Paris" was supposed to be "May in Paris" but it did not fit the melody composed by Vernon Duke. My favorite arrangement is by Count Basie, although it's an instrumental.

No "Sometimes It Snows In April" by Prince? That NEEDS to be on there. Its one of the best ballads ever.

Count Basie - playing April in paris on the range in Blazing Saddles - and of course - on every recording I have heard - and in concert - the famous line after the shout chorus
One more time! (and then again) One more time!
Three times more of
Lin Bivianno's screaming trumpet Butch Miles on drums and Freddie Green hitting every chord!
