Do you remember the 21st night of September?

Today’s the day when most people can’t get the song “September” by Earth, Wind & Fire out of their head.

Though nothing can beat the original, here are some covers that you can listen to throughout the day.

Taylor Swift

The singer-songwriter got some negative critiques for this slowed down version of the song, but the banjo adds a different twist to the original .

You’ll notice that Swift changed the date from the 21st to the 28th of September. This is apparently her anniversary with her now ex-boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, according to Vox.

Kirk Franklin

This gospel remake of “September” has some lyric changes as well as an interpolation of Johnny’s Nash’ “I Can See Clearly Now.”

Full Flava (feat. Chantay Savage)

This R&B version with a female vocalist is a fun new twist on the original.

John Tesh

If you like saxophone, this cover is for you. This version is mostly instrumental, and has a great sax break.

Trolls

With Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake joining Earth, Wind & Fire, this cover from DreamWork’s “Trolls” introduced a lot of kids to this classic song.

Bonus song: ‘December’ — Earth, Wind & Fire

This isn’t technically a cover, but you can’t miss this version of “September.”

This version is exactly the same as the original, except every mention of “September” has been changed to “December.”
