Although this month’s playlist does have a few true Halloween-ish songs, this is not a Halloween playlist. (You should visit this playlist if you need a true Halloween playlist.)
That said, this is a true autumn playlist: It has creepy songs, football season songs, and slow songs to sip your favorite fall-themed hot beverages to. October is all about shaking off the last remnants of summer and spring and diving deep into a little beneficial destruction. Now’s the time to break down what isn’t working to make room for better and brighter things. Now’s the time to sweep away the past to make space for the new.
September is a whole mess of feelings. But I have a playlist of 40 songs that are sure to help you sort through them all. You’ll find some familiar songs from playlists past, but there are quite a few new ones to keep you on your toes too.
Sometimes my playlists are a nod to the month’s featured holiday (see October’s spooky Halloween-inspired jams). But sometimes they’re just a reflection of how I’m feeling at this moment. So far, this month I’ve been feeling like I need peppier, bubbly and encouraging music.
