April is a month thoroughly blanketed in autumnal charm;
If the year were a day, summer would be the daytime and winter the nighttime. If spring is dawn, then autumn is dusk. Or… the restless place in between being awake and being asleep. It’s retirement for the deciduous population.
Autumn is the paradise in which we can wear woolen jumpers and thick socks and eat soup, without the sharp edges of winter forcing us to do so.
Here’s a playlist of my top 15 favourite songs of this Autumn (so far):
15. I Feel Fine – The Beatles
14. Maybe I Know – Lesley Gore
I think the thing I like best about Lesley Gore’s music is that it seems so modern, despite being released in 1964.
13. Crazy – Gnarls Barkley
My favourite gym song: those first few seconds always boost my motivation.
12. Someone New – Hozier
Hozier is no one hit wonder, and I’ve been busy discovering his music 🙂
11. Gasoline – Halsey
Gasoline on repeat = my soundtrack to writing my resume and then applying online to jobs.
10. Somebody Else – The 1975
After a cover from Doddleoddle, I’ve listened to this song only a few hundred times.
9. Twinkle Song – Miley Cyrus
This song is pretty weird, which we’ve all come to expect from Miley. But it also reminds fairly brilliantly reminds us that Miley Cyrus is a talented musician, which is something that I’ve definitely forgotten at time that it’s been overshadowed by her *distracting* media presence.
8. We Dont Believe What’s On TV – Twenty One Pilots
One of my absolute favourite bands, no list is complete without some Twenty One Pilots.
7. Staying Together – Bry
I want to stay in love with [this song] forever.
6. People Live Here – Rise Against
Reminds me of procrastinating study at the end of high school. To be fair, to listen without full attention to the music would not do it any justice.
5. 7 Years – Lukas Graham
I made everyone I know listen to it. You should listen to it. I’ll listen to it again too.
4. Flapper Girl – The Lumineers
I learned to play this lovely song on my lovely new soprano ukulele, because listening to it on repeat was just not enough.
3. Astronauts – Bry
“On the days you’re suffering, then the world is on my shoulders too.”
2. We Are Broken – Paramore
Honestly, on a list of my top favourite songs of all time this song’s probably right at number 1, but it’s been out of my mind so it’s only number 2 here. It’s made a resurgence in my mind over the last couple of days, and it is still just so good.
1. Dead Sea – The Lumineers
Do yourself a favour and listen to the entire album, seriously. I love it so very much, and my favourite song from it keeps shifting and rotating but right now it is this lovely.
