Sing Along with JFK


Recommended Posts

I found out about this album while surfing the net, and didn't know if alot of folk were familiar with it.

Speeches set to music.

Here is one of the songs on the link. (Click on the arrow. I had a bit of a problem posting media files.)

Alliance for Progress Bossa Nova:

Thank you, Kathy.

I like the Alliance for Progress song, for the sheer novelty.

But I found the novelty wore off after that first song,

and after listening to one more I had enough.

But thank you for posting it.

[in THE PLEASURE OF HIS COMPANY, Paul "Red" Fay describes JFK singing THE SEPTEMBER SONG at a family

gathering.

Oh, it's a long, long while from May to December

But the days grow short when you reach September

When the autumn weather turns the leaves to flame

One hasn't got time for the waiting game

Oh, the days dwindle down to a precious few

September, November

And these few precious days I'll spend with you

These precious days I'll spend with you.

Wish we had a recording Of JFK singing this song,

but here is the NEXT BEST version.
