For the record, I’m aware that it’s been autumn for a while now. Totally aware. But it’s never too late to ponder the songs that make you think of autumn, because autumn songs kind of rock. Every ‘season’ song does. Whether it be the song that reminds you of the hot, sweaty afternoons in summer, the cold, bundled up days of winter, the fresh, inspiring songs of spring, or the songs that we’re remembering today of autumn.
Here’s my autumn playlist; my top fifteen songs that remind me of autumn.
- Youth (Daughter)
So hauntingly beautiful, the guitar riff practically says ‘autumn’.
2. For What it’s Worth (Kygo & Angus and Julia Stone)
They get so dramatic and determined I can’t help but love it, especially with that piano.
3. Wasting My Young Years (London Grammar)
So angsty and dramatic. Why are all my autumn songs angsty and dramatic? Is that really what the reputation my autumns have? Still fabulous.
4.Eet (Regina Spektor)
This song is like an eternal autumn.
5. Straight into Your Arms (Vance Joy)
The bridge is what makes this song great. I remember singing this wearing bunchy autumn scarves.
6. Name of the game (ABBA)
Of course ABBA had to make an appearance, what with their heartfelt/dramatic songs.
7. Tether (CHVRCHES)
Try to make sense of the lyrics. The moment I did my life changed.
8. Roxanne (The Police)
Dancing in the autumn-time.
9. Deeper (Ella Eyre)
This song was the autumn of my high school life.
10. Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright (Peter, Paul and Mary)
This list must be good, because the only thing I can think of to describe these songs are: autumn. Autumn. Autumn.
11. Treacherous (Taylor Swift)
The autumn nights when the dark began falling sooner and sooner.
12. Orphans, Kingdoms (Brooke Fraser)
13. Timshel (GQ)
Autumn, autumn, autumn.
14.One Headlight (Relient K)
Sarah’s autumn when she was seventeen turning eighteen.
15. Reflections (Bliss ‘n’ Esso)
The autumn of young-highschooler-me.
Have a great autumn, everyone!
