"September in the Rain" is a popular song by Harry Warren and Al Dubin, published in 1937. The song was introduced by James Melton in the film Melody for Two. It has become a standard, having been recorded by many artists since.[1]

There were three charted versions in 1937 by Guy Lombardo, James Melton and Rhythm Wreckers (vocal by Pauline Byrns). The song became popular again in 1948 and 1949 when versions by Sam Donahue and the George Shearing Quintet briefly reached the charts.[2]

In 1962, the Beatles recorded a rock and roll interpretation during their Decca audition.[3]

A version by Peggy Lee is heard in the 1988 film Gorillas in the Mist.
