The weather may be deceiving, but as of September 23rd, fall is officially here. During this season, music can often complete moments of walking in the leaves, carving pumpkins or sipping cider with your family. When I think of fall music, I think of comfortable, homey songs that make me feel good. Light tunes. Indie voices. Soft acoustics. Below is a playlist of best songs to listen to in fall, and the charming lyrics that make them that way:
“September” by Earth, Wind, and Fire
Do you remember the 21st night of September? Love was changing the minds of pretenders while chasing the clouds away.
“Leaves that Turn Green” by Simon and Garfunkel
And the leaves that are green turn to brown, and they wither with the wind, and they crumble in your hand.
“November Rain” by Guns N’ Roses
So never mind the darkness, we still can find a way, ‘cause nothin’ lasts forever, even cold November rain.
“Autumn Leaves” by The Walters
The constellation it’s moving and it’s passing, autumn leaves, they have just begun.
“We’re Going To Be Friends” by The White Stripes
Fall is here, hear the yell, back to school, ring the bell.
“My Cosmic Autumn Rebellion” by Flaming Lips
They tell us autumn’s a comin’ and soon everything around us will die.
“Tiger Striped Sky” by Roo Panes
Half the world was pulling on his colors, as nights turned into day to the hours, a glow was coming down, coming down, I don’t know why but it felt like a tiger striped sky.
“Featherstone” by Paper Kites
She went out to the hay in the morning grace, She went out and got lost in a tall hedge maze.
“Autumn Sweater” by Yo La Tengo
Me with nothing to say, and you in your autumn sweater.
