It’s officially that time of the year again: Fall! My favorite season out of the four is finally upon us, and I have never felt better. From going on trips to the pumpkin patch with friends to ordering a pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks, fall emits such a festive, chill, and peaceful vibe!

However, especially in the midst of midterms (which I’m currently dealing with right now), it can be difficult to fully feel in the fall spirit. We’re not able to go out to the pumpkin patch all the time! That being said, music is something that always helps to transport me to a different place or put me in a specific vibe. With fall now upon us, what better way to celebrate than with a fall playlist?

Music that encompasses that fall feeling always makes me feel so at peace and calm, even if I’m dealing with stress or negativity. Since fall is already such a beautiful season filled with Halloween and the warmth of being with family and friends on Thanksgiving, it only makes sense that the music associated with it also follows suit. 

Some of my favorite songs associated with fall don’t even talk about anything actually related to the season. Instead, I associate certain instruments like acoustic guitar or minimal drum beats (specific elements of a song) with that feeling of peace and tranquility that fall certainly exudes

Some of my favorite fall songs tend to fall in the alternative/indie pop side of music, but any genre that puts you in the fall spirit is the right way to go! The list really does go on and on–from classical to jazz, to chill hip-hop, to oldies, to acoustic rock–fall vibes can truly be found anywhere and in any song that works for you!

I have found that my go-to playlists for the fall season always consist of calming alternative music and peaceful beats, as seen in my Spotify fall playlist that I created last fall (that I still listen to), titled “in that fall spirit babyyyy”.
