Listen :: Autumn Playlist
Isn't autumn nostalgic? Maybe it's just me, but I feel like it's the most contemplative and emotional season of the year. I'm constantly reminded of old memories and years gone by, things I used to do and people I used to see. It's a time for change; suddenly, I want to revamp and makeover everything. Perhaps it's because the weather is cooling down, the trees are shedding their leaves, and a sense of renewal is in our future. The bustling party of summer is nearly over, and I'm ready to relax, unwind and reflect.
Because of this, I'm no longer craving bass-heavy hip-hop, though I still love it dearly. I've started to play slower, more dramatic melodies both at home and in my car. Love and loss, deep sadness and calm happiness -- these are all common themes throughout my autumn playlist. Grab a mug of hot chocolate, cozy up with your journal, and enjoy. (You might need some tissues, too.)
