Playlist for Autumn

Below is the list of songs found in the YouTube playlist "Songs for an Autumn Day." Some of these songs have fall in the lyrics, other just have themes of coming to an end or moving on to a new stage of life, and others just have a cool, detached, enchanted sound or feel to them that makes me think "autumn."

I even got a little carried away and made the last few songs focus more on autumn nights. You know the kind I'm talking about--the chilly clear evenings under the stars in the arms of the one you love probably wrapped in a blanket and sipping hot cider--

I promise that if you just hit play and let this playlist run its course while you do your homework or make dinner, you will be in such a mood for this beautiful in-between season God has created. Hope you like it!

Remember, it's about the music, not the videos. That's why the player is so small . . .
