Today's the day I officially say "goodbye" to summer. We have a small flat and, due to my pathological loathing of throwing clothes away ("I WILL be wearing that ra ra skirt some time soon..") I have an ungodly amount of things to wear. So some time towards the end of September, beginning of October, all the wee dresses, sandles, T-shirts etc etc get bundled into sundry suitcases and carted off to the loft. And out come the pullovers, kilts, cardigans, boots and all the other warmer items of apparel for the months to come. Today's the day. So I'm whizzing between the Mac and the bedroom... and the study... and the bedroom... and the Mac. In fact doing this post is very clearly a displacement activity to avoid getting down to the serious business in hand. This change of wardrobe also applies to the music I listen to. About this time every year I start digging out songs which are the 'autumn wardrobe' of my audio existence. These songs have absolutely nothing to do with falling leaves, laughter in the rain or any other autumnal themes à la RR. I just think I must have bought them in autumn or fallen in love with them in autumn and so the turning hues of the trees make me need to hear them again. That simple. Having listened to Ejay's stunning 'rain' playlist, I 'm now listening to my autumn selection which I humbly offer for your delectation.
And what we really want to know is: Are your musical tastes as cyclical as mine? Do you have summer songs or indeed autumn/winter songs which you wouldn't dream of listening to when the mercury's rising? Let me know if you do and I'll do my best, deezer willing, to stick them in this playlist.
