What other (non-Christmas) songs cry out to be played at very specific times of the year?

Radio stations tend to break out the "Monster Mash" in late October.

"Happy New Year" by ABBA and "New Year's Day" by U2 (the best U2 song to my ears).

There is better Hallowe'en music than that cited here (note that I used the apostrophe: very important). But I won't mention it, because I'm tired of the usual suspects thinking I'm right-wing (and they would).

'End Of A Century' by Blur. That's a very occasional one.

Someone must have written a song called 4th of July or similar.

I'm not proud of the fact that I know Rush have a song called Bastille Day

And of course Eric Bogle's "And the band played Waltzing Matilda" ought to be required listening throughout Anzac day. (And his "No Man's Land" on Remembrance Day)

The Ides by FrYars. Although I suppose 12 times a year isn't that specific.

Hey Mackstress, welcome back.

Stevie Wonder's "Happy Birthday" should, strictly speaking, only be applied to MLK Day.

The only record I can think of that mentions the fourth of July, off the top of my head, is "When You're Young And In Love" by The Marvelettes, but I'm sure there must be scores more.

As you can tell, my head's in a Motown place right now...

This would mean we'd never, ever hear "(December 1963) Oh What A Night" (Seasons), "1963" (New Order), "Summer of '69" (Adams) or "1979" (Pumpkins) again. And we'll be waiting a while before Zager & Evans get any airplay, too.

November Rain and July get predictable airings on Irish radio stations.

The Nicole Atkins track I cared & shared especially for you as well, Rhino. "Fourh of July, Brooklyn's on fire".

"On the Fourth of July, 1806
We set sail from the sweet Cobh of Cork"

I'm sure it got bellowed out a few times yesterday.
