    Yes, all those are classics. Might as well add Stereotype by The Specials while we’re at it.

    Fairground by Simply red, it reminds me of October 1995 which was an Indian summer month,

    Haha, yeah I remember that and they played it to death. The warm sunny October, before the cold winter of 95/96.

    Greece 2000 by Three drives on a vinyl ...... has a reflective mood, the summer party is over and is in its last throws.

    Still im sad by the Yardbirds, and turn to earth (not a single) "Dying leaves of seasons brown, Losing life as they drift down"

    Run by Sandie Shaw,  samples a storm and wind, cant get much more autumnal then that!

    Some velvet morning by Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra ... extremely moody Lee sounds foreboding like Autumn compared with Nancys summery female vocals

    For me its the mood of the song that counts more then the time of year it was released

    Indian Summer by Stereophonics. Although I was young when they came out I also associate Wonderwall by Oasis and Country House by Blur with early autumn.

    ‘Time of No Reply’ by Nick Drake (opening lines: Summer was gone and the heat died down / And Autumn reached for her golden crown..”) and, at the other end of the music spectrum, ‘Give It’ by X-Press 2...
     

    Both get played at this time of year!
