As you all know, I love Fall. I think that much is pretty obvious on my blog! And one of the coolest prompts we've had so far in the I heart Fall Journal Class is "Create the Perfect Fall Playlist"!
If you are thinking what in the world?! to the selctions, let me explain! I've used to be heavily into finding new bands and listening to new music and being "trendy" when it came to music. When I got out of highschool, I pretty much just kept listening to the music that I liked alot. This playlist reflects that. These are songs that I've been listening to for years now. Some are newer than others. Some I don't really listen to anymore, but they mean Fall to me. Like #1 & #2. I used to listen to the Ugly Organ by Cursive ONLY in the fall/winter season. The windows had to be down and the heat had to be on. The volume had to be as loud as I could stand and I would totally jam out in my car. Now, I don't have that c.d. anymore.. it's in my itunes... Anyway, it iconalizes fall to me. The creepy organ bits, the jangeling keys, the crowd, the announcers voice. Very carnival feeling. Love it.
There are four songs on this list that are in my ALL time favorite songs EVER! Those would be:
In A Sweater Poorly Knit -mewithoutyou
Nobody Hugs A Rose- Cool Hand Luke
Embers & Envelops- Mae
Pretty much all songs from those bands I am in love with. I plan to name my next daughter Eisley Mae. :) I guess my life if really influenced by music! Right now (and for the past year or so) my favorite muscian is Brooke Fraser or more recently married Ligertwood. She's a leader on Hillsong and writes and sings some of the most beautiful worship songs you will ever hear! I think I aspire to be like her in my piano playing and singing. Even my song writing. She's so effortless and anoited. I could literally get lost in her songs.
So, there you have it. My music for fall. And my love for music. Hope you liked it!
What are your favorites? I'm curious & would love to hear what you like!!
