'Tis Autumn

Description
Every year about this time, I post a new version of this song. I think this is my fourth or fifth version of this thing. Wow, I guess I've been here a little while! It's usually met with men crying, women fainting and children screaming and most prominently, putting everybody to sleep. Then they wake up in the Spring, wipe the sleep crust from their eyes, and go about their usual business.

Thanks for listening, and as often is the case, I'm backed by the inestimable Alan McPike.

Take care now,

Michael

"'Tis Autumn" was written by Henry Nemo (always wondered about that name) in 1938.

La-dee-dah Jack!
Say, thanks for commenting. It seems I get a "favorite" and that's it lately around here, whereas, I truly do enjoy hearing from folks around here, even if it's to say, "it's okay" (watch somebody come back with that now!) It's a favorite song of mine and I'm glad you liked it partner--you take care now! Michael

Hi Cees
I love the fall as well, although it means another year of getting older for me in October (UGH!) I love fall even more, now that I got through my first real Alabama summer, let me tell you! Thanks again partner and you take good care now! Michael

You're in good form Michael.

Thanks so much Charlie!
I tend to avoid ballads like the plague, but as the masterful BirdmanWayne suggested we do a ballad in the near future, I thought I'd better get warmed up; really, any ballad I do that gets a nice word, now THAT means so much to me because I usually just murder the things! Glad to hear from you Charlie--you take great care now! Michael

Michael - I swear
if MacJams suddenly collapsed and all that was left was radio MJK we'd all get by on your broadcast. Love this offering. So glad I get to hear you.

Hey there Bud!
I hope I'll be singing again soon--this is embarrassing, but last night, my @(*$&$^@! bridge implant just popped out of my mouth! I look like "Knucklehead Smiff" now and it ain't pretty! I'm sure they can fix me back up again for the cost of a new car, no worries! But seriously, thank you so very much for those graciously warm remarks Bud--you take care now! Michael

Thanks so much nephew! You always display some of the nicest artwork with your music so glad you loved the image I chose. I'm afraid the falls here in Alabama are not nearly as colorful as those in Minnesota (too, too many pine trees for one thing!)but it's always been a beautiful and kind of unique season of the year for me--yours too I hope! Take good care now, Michael

It's Okay
Now you know I just HAD to say that, right? A classic Routine #7, yanno!

Oh this is just so beautiful, Moe. Just what I needed to start off my Sunday morning. :)

Impsie Baby!
Well, it's been a while so I can easily understand your mistake, but you'll probably remember now when I mention it that a Routine #7 is the one invariably used by NTWs and P-B types (you were close though, you pulled a routine #17!) And here's another seldom used routine (#100--page 42 in the manual): You are the bestess--thanks so very much for those nice words!

Lovely job, Michael. I saw where you don't really like singing ballads. You surely can't tell that here as this is timeless and elegant Bravo.

It is a lovely little song and really does paint some indelible imagery that seems so true to life. Thanks so much for listening Chris and for your gracious and kind review! Michael

a lovely piece Michael, very subtle and just right for a warm Sunday autumn evening here in the UK.
Very much enjoyed.

We don't really get Autumn down here. So thanks for giving me a taste without making me rake a yard full of leaves. Beautiful track. Charming vocal! Timeless!

Yah, I hear you! It's kind of "iffy" here in Birmingham as well, a very slow process, but I do welcome the cooler air, that's for sure! You are too kind, and thanks so much for stopping by Andrew. Michael

And....
we expect another one next fall. This one just drifts along in mellow smoothness. Nice timing/spacing on your singing. Appears effortless, but I know it's not. Thanks for this one, master Michael...

Jack
Thanks many times over partner! I did kind of "speed" this backing up (sorry Alan!) just a wee bit--I'm always afraid to sing ballads at a very slow tempo, so I think that worked better for me. Take good care now and appreciated having your come by! Michael

Bravo, excellent pitch Michael, but I was waiting for the
"egg slicer" to make its entrance!

I surely appreciate the encouragement (believe me, I wince quite often listening back) so thanks so very, very much! Michael PS: I used the egg slicer in my other outing posted here recently--but don't worry, I had just had it tuned!

Hey Michael
I really enjoyed your fine vocal performance in this song. Alan's piano is great too. The days have become decidedly nicer here too, and this song fits the mood perfectly. Thank you for sharing your talent, as always.

'Tis Autumn. Yay!
Smooth as Mr Sinatra's "Jack 5 Star", Michael. You can do ballads, don't kid yourself. More please! (And a little touch more of that JD 5 star, too :-)). Take care, Peter.

Really, had I known what I was drinking, I would have saved it! But I still have four of Frank's cigarette butts (another story for another time!) As usual, I'm greatly flattered and much obliged for your generosity Peter; you take care now!

MJK
and the McPike Orchestra at their finest. A lovely and fitting piece, as I look out of my window and see the lilac tree changing colour. I like this time of year.

Beautiful, as ever. You have a rare talent.

Dave!
Thanks so very, very much for your kind words. I'd love to do this again and take another stab at that ending however--I have a common problem and that's not "easing" into a prolonged note like that "au" business at the end--it's hard to remember these things sometimes while your more worried about your tongue or your big fat liver lips getting in the way, but next time! Great hearing from you--take care mate! Michael
