THE RIDICULOUSLY MASSIVE FALL PLAYLIST: a vast collection of songs you’ve listened to a million times and songs you definitely have never heard in your life, featuring mumford & sons and half my collection of mashups of MGMT’s Kids. ranging from the sedate (the cinematic orchestra) to the soulful (delta rae) to the pumped-up (chiddy bang) to the simply bizarre (alasdair roberts), these seventy songs are the perfect background texture as the bright days of summer transition to the crisp air of autumn.
(genre of all songs has been changed to “fall mix” to simplify sorting. i recommend putting them all in a playlist and shuffling to your heart’s content. playlist is approx. 5 hrs long.)
