It might be cliche but I love fall. Even in North Texas where autumn feels like a brief layover between summer and winter, I still get excited as everything turns a shade of orange and pumpkin-spiced.
Every fall I create a playlist of songs that remind me of the season in some way. It could be the song reminds me of a specific fall memory or it somehow feels the way I do when the weather turns cooler.
It’s an excuse to dive into my favorite artists as well as experience new ones. I spend countless hours listening for the perfect songs. I could easily have hundreds on the playlist but I force myself to keep it to twelve.
Twelve songs that move me in some way, that reach out to me and remind me of the season change. It’s personal and makes me feel connected to the music. No one else listens to these twelve songs in this particular order. It creates a unique experience.
Do you do the same thing? What songs would be on your list? Here are a few that made my list this year.
River: Leon Bridges
The Night We Met: Lord Huron
Last of My Kind: Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit
