Fall Playlists

Ellie Gates

As we get deeper into the fall, it is nice to have different playlists to match different ~moods~. I personally love getting Alexa to play some of my favorites with the leaves blowing outside my window. While I love being cozy in my room listening to tunes, I do have different moods and this means different playlists. Here are some of mine below…


My first favorite playlist right now is what I listen to when I am doing homework or just chilling out in my room. I love this playlist because there are many different types of stories told through these songs. Here are some acoustic tunes that relax me.

Next are some fun and snappy songs for the car or getting ready. These are pop beats to put you in a good mood. I love this playlist because I explore both popular artists like Post Malone and The Chainsmokers, but also there are some lesser-known artists on this playlist. These include Anna of the North and Quinn XCII. While these tunes come from different artists, they are all similar pop moods for a good, fun playlist!

Now, My top 3 Favorite Songs Right Now…

  1. Green Mountain State, Trevor Hall
    1. This song talks about memories and visuals form Hall’s childhood in Vermont. This is a very low-key and relaxing song that picks up towards the end. I love this song for fall because it is about noticing foliage and the beauty outside.
  2. Brooklyn In The Summer, Aloe Blacc
    1. This is an excellent song that is very snappy. This song is also great, because it is cool and has a nice bass which makes it nice in the fall because it is less summer-y. This song is about how Aloe Blacc has to let go a girl he loves through a very fun song.
  3. Video Child, Many Voices Speak
    1. This is an alternative tune that is another relaxing bop. It is not acoustic, but very low-key. I love listening to this song while I do my homework.
