I can't be alone here, right? Just like every summer has a "song", and there are a few select Christmas carols that just instantly make you feel like you're next to your tree in a snuggie with cup of cocoa, even if you're really in a crowded shopping mall. I have the same kind of devotion to fall music, and most of these became "fall music" because they were released in the fall and I played them on repeat until the snow started falling. There's even one particular song that became a fall song simply because I was driving down an orange-and-yellow leaf crowded road with the windows rolled down, the sun and crisp breeze flying in through them, and it happened to be blasting through my mini van for the experience. You've been there, right? So here it is. These are the albums that put me in the perfect Fall mood, as well as some of the specific songs that just do it for me more than the others. Enjoy!
