Living here in the Northeast United States, I realize that, by the end of September, leaves are going to start to turn. And temperatures are going to start to drop.
Because of a drought, our leaves are turning earlier than usual, so it is time to turn our Music Monday ears to songs about fall and autumn leaves, songs that make you think of fall weather or songs that mention leaves.
More Than This by Roxy Music. "Falling leaves in the night...."
Autumn in New York, as sung by Billie Holiday.
Autumn Leaves, as sung by Nat King Cole. More a song about love, but it qualifies, in my opinion.
November Rain, by Guns and Roses. True, it isn't quite about autumn rain, and more about love, but I'm including it because - what it is about autumn and lost love, anyway?
Let us enjoy autumn while we can - the pumpkin spice, the apples, the falling leaves, the beautiful blue skies and everything else that comes with it, for all too soon winter will be here.
