My Autumn playlist


Fall is a melancholy season and I am a choleric person so I feel at home during Autumn. Here are some songs I play to feed my melancholy:

Finally, to clear out the cobwebs of age and acceptance:

I'll take one for the team:

Tom Rush – Urge For Going
Fairport Convention – Who Knows Where the Time Goes
Neil Young – Sugar Mountain
Joni Mitchell – The Circle Game
Alice Cooper – I’m Eighteen


Nice idea, though I'm not sure how the Coop selection fits in.

I'll add a few when I think of them.

*deleting my own list cuz Meanie ruined it *

Alice is there because I may be melancholic but I'm not suicidal.

The funny thing about that song is that I was seventeen when it came out and I felt it didn't apply to me. I never matured beyond seventeen and it still doesn't apply, but us seventeen yr olds have a whiny Janis Ian song and a K Pop band to choose between. I go with Alice.

And as there is ALWAYS a song, from the same album we have my current theme:

You have to work for this one.

Nothing wrong with a playlist for the doldrums.

It's like you're challenging me.

There is ALWAYS a song, and I haven't gotten out of my record collection.

Moving thread from MPSIMS to Cafe Society, which is a better forum for playlists and mood-setting music discussions.

I heard that once? Thrice? forty years ago. But can I remember people's names?

geek, I posted it on MPSIMS because it was about feels, not music. Harumph!

I recently got a recommendation from a friend for the latest album by Nick Cave And the Bad Seeds, Ghosteen. Boy, it didn't disappoint for an autumn record, perfect music to hang yourself to... But in earnest, it's great music, and I just love to listen to stuff like that when it's fall and outside it's raining and storming and nature dies.

Thanks to my horrible wifi, I can’t really check out the YouTube links. I understand there’s Alice in there too! (I’ll be seeing him in April - for the fourteenth time!)
I think of Alice as being summer music simply because I acquired my Billion Doller Babies by mowing grass.
If I must come up with an Autumn song, it would be “Ramble On”, Led Zeppelin.
I also usually read the Hobbit in the Fall and of course they are related.

Classical Music Playlist - Autumn Edition

Anything by Brahms

Beethoven works, too
Schumann, Dvorák, Bartók, Hindemith
Some Bach, Schubert, Liszt, Prokofiev, Britten, Ligeti or Schmitt

Cello, clarinet or bassoon pieces in general. Works that reference woods or trees.

Gotta give this thread a little bump - I was enjoying it.

Er..... I haven't got another specifically autumnal classic readily to hand, but I think A Rainy Night In Soho might suit the mood anyway.

I'm not going to cave in and open any of the links, but I'm going to be generous and assume that the songs mentioned so far have included "Forever Autumn" by Justin Hayward, written by Jeff Wayne for his War of the Worlds album.
