Fall is a time of change and new beginnings–shorter days, crunchy leaves, colder air, and of course, a new academic year. Some people love it, some hate it, but regardless of how you feel it’s a million times better than the bitter winter we all know is coming. Here’s a playlist to help you enjoy the beautiful weather, and survive returning back to school.
“Castle” — Halsey
This song is the perfect way to motivate yourself to start waking up painfully early in the morning. School? Bring it on.
“Spin” — Bad Bad Hats
This song sounds like the opening song in a crappy high school romantic comedy. And I mean that in the best way possible. So why not listen to it to make the first day back a little less dull?
“So Radio” — Look Out Love
“Oxford Comma” — Vampire Weekend
I don’t know about you, but I automatically think of this song whenever I walk into English class.
“Ivy and Gold” — Bombay Bicycle Club
If the leaves sang as they changed colors, they’d sing this song.
“Souls” — Hippo Campus
This is an awesome tune by my favorite MN band, and perfect in those last few weeks of being outside before it gets REALLY cold.
“Wind Fall” — Photocomfort [Not available on Spotify]
This song is perfect to listen to while walking through the woods admiring the red and gold trees.
“Dreams” — Bastille feat. Gabrielle Aplin
Leave it to Bastille to cover a Fleetwood Mac song and make it sound dramatic, haunting, and perfect for a cold and rainy fall night.
“Weekend” — Priory
Even though it’s back-to-school, we still have the weekends. Beautiful, wonderful weekends.
“Anna Sun” — Walk the Moon
Singer Nick Petricca once said this song was about his adventures during his college days. It’s a final celebration of the warmer weather, and a perfect closer to this playlist.
