It’s officially October and you know what that means… it’s time for a new free song of the month! This time, we’re bringing you Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart’s “Manhattan.”

Who needs a luxury vacation when you have the zoo, the subway, and…a gourmet dinner from a vending machine? The young couple in this 1925 song can’t afford a fancy getaway, but they joke about making the most of New York’s less-than-glamourous attractions and having a good time anyway.

This October, you can take home this lighthearted classic at no cost!

If you haven’t heard this song before, here’s an arrangement to check out:
