Earth, Wind, and Fire is having a great September.

The song references a momentous night on the 21st of September, and it looks like fans remembered that, too.

The band’s funk classic “September” has seen a spike in sales and streaming, Rolling Stone reports.

The magazine says that “fans cued up ‘September’ to the tune of 2.5 million streams on Saturday alone, a 225 percent increase from the day prior.”

Some songs deserve to be relived at least once a year.

Earth, Wind, and Fire is not the only band to see these spikes with the calendar.

Green Day’s 2005 song “Wake Me Up When September Ends” popularity during this month means more revenue for the band.

There are more than enough timely songs to fill a playlist. Here are a few:

“January Girl by Gilbert O’Sullivan
“February Stars” by Foo Fighters
“Sometimes It Snows In April” by Prince
“First of May” by the Bee Gees
“June Hymn” by The Decemberists
“4th Of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)” by Bruce Springsteen”
“August 7, 4:15” by Jon Bon jovi
“September Song” by Willie Nelson
“October” by U2
“November Rain” by Guns n’ Roses
“December” by All About Eve
