Fall is undoubtedly one of everyone’s favorite seasons. It’s also the perfect time to take a walk outside with your headphones in and look at the beauty that is around you. Instead of listening to the same songs already on your playlist, mix it up with some of my personal favorites this season. In total, this playlist will give you an hour of musical bliss. Here are the picks:
(Song- Artist, Album)
Passenger Seat- Death Cab for Cutie, Transatlanticism
-Delicate piano and soulful vocals. The perfect song for looking out the windows of a car.
Good Bones- Quiet Hounds, Wild Hunt
-Fresh with powerful drums and killer harmonies. Song for adventuring.
Flightless Bird- Iron and Wine, The Shepherds Dog
-Calm and melancholy. Sure it was on the Twilight soundtrack, but we can forgive that.
These Stones Will Shout- The Raconteurs, Consolers of the Lonely
-Twangy, blues rock. Jack White always has it right.
Ghosts That We Knew- Mumford and Sons, Babel
-Deep and flowing, with gratuitous banjo. Hope in the darkness.
Shaking Through- R.E.M, Murmur
-Driving and energetic. What would Athens be without R.E.M.?
Hannah Hunt- Vampire Weekend, Modern Vampires of the City
-Bare background track with signature vocals. Reminiscent of an untrustworthy lover.
Undone (Sweater Song)- Weezer, Blue Album
-Quirky and totally 90’s. Plus, the “Sweater Song” definitely belongs on a fall playlist.
Do I Wanna Know?- Arctic Monkeys, AM
-Intense and bass-y, with plenty of English accents. One of the hits of the year.
Can’t Get Enough- Tealvox, The Next Room Over
-Fun-loving rock song. Local Athens flavor.
Wings- Birdy, Fire Within
-Angelic vocals. One of Birdy’s many covers.
Police Station- Red Hot Chili Peppers, I’m With You
-Haunting lyrics and lots of musical range. One of the Pepper’s softer pieces.
The Light- Futurebirds, Baba Yaga
-Southern and Folksy. Listen to this when you’re driving past the pastures.
Dead Sea- The Lumineers, The Lumineers
-One hundred percent indie. An organic symphony of sound.
The Girl- City and Colour, Bring Me Your Love
-Charming and Romantic. Song for Cuddling.
