Autumn & add song suggestions if you can!

Under the cut:

Rambling about why I love autumn,

and a fall playlist idea.

Autumn is here, and fall is my absolute FAVORITE season. There’s something special about sitting on the deck under a grey sky with chilly wind blowing.

Not quite freezing — not like walking to the bus stop in winter and in the dark — but simply chilly.

I love the feeling of opening the window at 50 degree weather.

I love the feeling of walking in the backyard just to admire the wind.

I love the feeling of security from sitting at home alone and staring out the window towards darkening skies.

What also comes with fall?

Season premieres.

It’s such a shame I have to go to Virginia at the time of Community’s season premiere! I’m so excited.

Sweaters.

My sister took away my favorite, but even without jumpers, I still have my monkey hat and my Sherlock scarf. I miss wearing those, which can be for both winter and autumn weather. (also, moccasins!)

Food!!!

Who doesn’t like pumpkin pie or soup?

finally,

Autumn playlists.

Not the kind of melancholy piano medleys I love during winter (Winter Song, Your Song, Yesterday, Florence + the Machine, Arcade Fire, A Fine Frenzy, Snow Patrol, etc…)

But something upbeat but at the same time resigned, like Regina Spektor — ne me quitte pas, mon cher — Mumford and Sons with their lovely banjos, The Decemberists, Matt & Kim, Passion Pit, Radiohead, The Cranberries, just to name a few.

Also, to copy MT and Batcat with their summer, why not shower the (arguably, but we all have our opinons) best season with love???

I think a fall season playlist would be awesome. If you have any song suggestions, but suggest them!

Not exactly songs that are super upbeat, or super sad, but something that makes you think of fall, something that makes you think of starting something new but with a bit of resignation. Folk songs are supreme! Also, I know I mentioned not super upbeat, but upbeat is great!

Some suggestions to help?

  • Don’t Leave Me — Regina Spektor
  • Samson — Regina Spektor
  • Little Secrets — Passion Pit
  • Dreams — The Cranerries
  • Don’t Carry It All — The Decemberists
  • After the Storm — Mumford & Sons
  • Home — Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes
  • It’s Time — Imagine Dragons
  • Autumn — Paolo Nutini <– despite its title, it reminds me more of a winter playlist, but I love Paolo Nutini, so I thought, why not?

  1. Yes. Go autumn!

    Well, actually I think I prefer winter more, but only because the Australian winter weather would probably be the same as the American autumn weather… My favourite weather is definitely chilly, grey, cloudy days where the sky has no blue. That’s what we get in winter, though. And in autumn we get pretty hot days; the principal finds more deodorant spray cans in bags in autumn and spring than the other seasons. (No one bothers in summer, because in Australia, you don’t even say summer; you say Storm Season.)

    I don’t really seem to keep up with TV anymore. D: Well, I keep up with Big Brother, and that’s about it.

    (I don’t know what a sweater is! -le embarrassing moment- But I probably only don’t know what is because it’s an American term. Is it?)

    Food = tradish Aussie snags on the barbie. (Translation: traditional Australian sausages on the barbecue.)

    I’m afraid I can’t help you with the playlist because I’m still listening tot he same songs after nearly a year!

    Actually, I suppose there are a few that remind me of Autumn, though I don’t why. So excuse me if my suggestions suck.

    To Build a Home – The Cinematic Orchestra
    Almost Lover – A Fine Frenzy
    Yellow – Coldplay
    It’s Too Late – Evermore
    You Picked Me – A Fine Frenzy (actually this is more spring-y but still…)
    The Sound of Silence – Simon & Garfunkel (OLD!)

  2. I like Asian soup. It’s spicy 😀

    Um song ideas…. Hmmm….

    Cough Syrup by Young The Giant
    Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked by Cage The Elephant
    Kids by MGMT
    Tongue Tied by Grouplove

  3. I can’t think of any songs right now (Katy Perry music is playing in my ear right now, so I’m finding it difficult to concentrate) so I will start off by saying that Fall/Autumn is officially my favorite season! 🙂 I don’t know why, but for some reason I find I have better luck at this time of year (see, I’m crazy!) such as being picked for the Advanced-Squad-Official-Whatever it is Swimming Team and being given a FREE mockingkay pin (no, not at the Hob. I do not live in District Twelve, unfortunately).
    – Magic
    PS: this is totally random, but has anyone else here seen the episode of Doctor Who with the Weeping Angels in NY? The Statue of Liberty thing, however creepy it was meant to be, was AWESOME!
