Thread Name: Lyr Req: One last try! 12 songs for 12 months!
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: One last try! 12 songs for 12 months!
These are all the songs I can find whose lyrics have been posted in the forum that have the name of a month in the title, grouped by month. It's interesting how some months are far more popular than others as subjects of songs.

I have tried to include only one link for each song, even though some songs have been posted many times in the forum. It's possible that some duplicates exist if a song goes by more than one title.
