A Few (101) Songs For Fall

(image via, by Sylvia Hart)

Fall is my favorite season of the year. It inspires feelings and yearnings of a sort that I'm not exactly sure how to describe: joy-tinged melancholy, sweet nostalgia, desperate hope, and other pretentious sounding shite like that. Plus, it just feels so damn good outside, day and night--there's something in the air. Thus, it's one of the best times of year for the music listener. Here are 101 songs that beautifully capture those feelings. If you have Spotify, go directly to the playlist here, hit shuffle, roll down or open your windows for God's sake, and enjoy.
