A Girl Named January

The song, January, was written by David Paton, lead singer and co-founder of the Scottish pop-rock band Pilot. In an interview, David Paton explained the origin of his 1975 hit song. He described how one evening as his wife was reading a book featuring a lead female character named January, she said to David, “January is a nice name for a girl, don’t you think?” He started thinking about it along with a melody and soon wrote the song about a girl named January. The song was the biggest hit for Pilot, reaching number one on the UK Singles chart for three weeks and charted at number one in Australia as well. January only dipped into the top 40 list in the USA where Pilot was better known for their other hit pop song, Magic which charted at number 5 in the USA.
