Not To Early To Go Back To School


Fall, one of my favorite seasons, consists of apple crisp, pumpkins, fall leaves, briskly weather, going back to school, hay rides, Halloween, crunching leaves when you're walking down a street, Thanksgiving, a new wardrobe, and a new playlist for fall that gets you into the season. But how dare I bring this up in the middle of summer when the last thing we want to think about is homework and colder weather? Well all the fashion houses and magazines have been getting you ready for Fall ever since March!
I have my albums and songs I like to play mainly in the summer (like Vampire Weekend, Jack Johnson, etc) not that I don't play them year round, I do, but their music is like perfectly themed for summer I think. My fall playlist is more folksy, harvesty sounding stuff (like Jon Foreman, Ryan Adams). But never have I bought an album that was entirely devoted to a seasonal playlist like Jaymay's Autumn Falllin'.

I didn't know it would fit all the requirement of what I think Autumn music should sound like when I bought this CD a few weeks ago. not only does the music have an acoustic, folksy, frolicky flair, but each song actually does have to do with the Fall season! Its perfect! It has already been on heavy rotation, yes, even in the middle of summer. If you like Regina Spektor or Katie Herzig, you will love Jaymay.


***I put some of her music on my little bear music player!

thats funny you often put folk songs in the fall category because i often think they're summery haha. i dunno maybe its because i imagine sticky hot summer days, romantic blue skys with a few cute clouds, lemonade, corn on the cob, and fields of wheat in association with folk haha, i have no idea why really! and i also love fall, frankly all of this sun and heat gets tiresome to me. you tell yourself to go outside and enjoy the weather, yet half the time I just whine about how much I'm sweating because of it haha, like day after day of perfection gets tedious, that's why I'll likely never live in California haha. whereas in fall, the air gets cripser and cooler daily. and the scents associated with fall- cider, spice, smoke, etc are much more heavenly compared to summery smells like grease, sweat, melting ice cream, and stale beer haha. not trying to be miss pessimistic (or am I? ;) but i'm sort of ready to move on, I'm getting exicted for plaids and definitely being a collegiate

i know what you mean with the love for fall (autumn). crunchy leaves are cute and wrapping up warm is snuggly!

Ah, I'm counting down for fall. I'm so sick of summer dressing.

I too agree that music does have it's own seasons.

I'll definately have to check her out. I listen to Vampire Weekend in the summer too, perfect roadtrip/swim party music. And definately Death Cab for Cutie in the fall/winter, great for rainy/snowy days!

Ouh, I love acoustic type music, I'll have to check her out.. but not yet, I need to soak up the summer while I can!!

I love your description of fall. I've never had a genuine fall, it's always super hot and summery like in San Francisco.

It was funny, a friend just asked me the other day what song I think of when I think of summer. For me it's always "oldies" in the summertime and melancholy music as the weather gets cooler! Brilliant post.

Though I haven't seen a classroom in years I do love that time of year, the weather, the clothes, the anticipation of a fresh start -- I'll take it over summer any time!
