Last night the autumn equinox began, commencing: sweater weather! The fall leaf scents and pumpkin flavors have already taken over, but today it’s official. Cooler, rainy days and the “back-to-school” feelings fill us with so many happy memories. Almost everyone can agree that autumn is a stunning and heartwarming season, despite the ubiquitous rain and foliage death. Perhaps this is because it reminds us of going back to school, Halloween, and other events that breed wonderful reminiscences for us.
Along with the sights and scents of autumn, music adds to the beauty and pleasant nostalgia of the season. Certain songs can take you back, some excite your heart as you hear them for the first time, and others will put you in a peaceful mood. Most of us love autumn because it represents the beginning of the end of the year, and a period of relaxation. Working on research papers, holiday projects, or tasks in a home office can be quite soothing… with the right tunes. Brew your favorite tea or warm up cider, start our playlist, and relax while you focus on your to-do list.
We’ve put together 25 songs that are just as beautiful as the season itself. Go ahead, give it a listen and give in to the happy comfort of fall 2015. Have suggestions for our playlist? Leave your favorite autumn songs in the comments below and we’ll add the best ones!
