Playlist: an ode to autumn

I'm a sucker for a good sad song.

Over the years, as I've gotten older, attended concerts, talked with people about what they listen to, I have dipped my toes into nearly every genre of music and now, I listen to pretty much anything.

Pop punk.

Ya know, State Champs, Modern Baseball, Neck Deep. Etc.

Rap.

I've been listening to Mac Miller's new album (ugh) on repeat. Also, give it up for J Cole and his talent as a writer/lyricist. Cause....damn.

Classic rock.

The Police, Aerosmith, Kansas, Steve Miller Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, the rest of the greats.

Side note: it's interesting that we call it "classic", because during that time, it was just plain ol rock and roll.

Indie.

The Districts, The Vaccines, Morning Parade, Arctic Monkeys, The National. They just have those vibes, you know?

Singer-songwriter.

Gregory Alan Isakov, John Mayer, Bon Iver...

The list of genres + my favorites from each could go on and on...

But let me talk about where we are now: autumn.

I'm a sucker for a good fall playlist. Some sad songs. Something that will make me want to curl up in bed with a book and some hot coffee, near a window so I can watch the trees...

I figured I would share my playlist, an ode to autumn.

Here's a few of the songs:

  • "Chemicals" - Gregory Alan Isakov

  • "Futile Devices" - Sufjan Stevens

  • "Come Back to Earth" - Mac Miller

  • "Smoke Signals" - Phoebe Bridgers

  • "This Eve of Parting" - John Hartford
