Just like with novels, music seems to have a season for me too. For me, autumn is the perfect time to listen to slower, softer songs, without letting go of the feel good songs of the summer. This playlist progresses from the mellow to the upbeat tracks I've been loving. It's the kind of playlist that I love to throw on when I'm in a chill mode, especially while I'm walking around the city. The slower, more "epic" tracks are great for writing sessions when my novel soundtracks just aren't inspiring me. And the more upbeat, catchy songs are great for anything active. Many of the tracks that make it to my playlists during this time are from some of my favorite fall t.v. shows, like Sons of Anarchy, Vampire Diaries and The Originals. I also like to combine newer songs with some older ones for the perfect mix. My favorites include "Bartholomew" by The Silent Comedy (played during the Klaus massacre scene in The Originals), "Rainy Day" by Guster (from the movie "Life As A House"), and "Black Widow" by Iggy Azalea & Rita Ora, and "2 On" by Tinashe & Schoolboy Q.
So here's the songs that got me through September and will carry me well through Fall-O-Ween! I hope you find a few to enjoy :)
I also love this mash up of Calvin Harris' "Summer" and Lana Del Ray's "Summertime Sadness" by Charity Vance!
