Fall Playlist

by Katie Raguz

Since fall is typically the season of new music, I decided to create a playlist of songs that have been recently released. With the exception of a couple, I’ve included songs released in the summer and fall of 2015. Here are 15 songs for fall of 2015:

  • “Magnets” by Disclosure ft. Lorde: This upbeat song was released on Disclosure’s new album “Caracul.” Not only did Disclosure team up with Lorde, but their album also features artists like The Weeknd, Sam Smith, and Miguel.
  • “Gone” by Jr. Jr.: I have been listening to this song nonstop for the past few weeks. It recently made the Alt 18 on Alt Nation, and is a part of Jr. Jr.’s self-titled album that released on September 25.
  • “Colors” by Halsey: If you’ve talked to me within the past week or two, you may know that I have a new obsession with Halsey. Some of you may know her most popular song “New Americana,” which I highly recommend as well. These songs are members of Halsey’s “Badlands” album, which is actually a concept album about a booming metropolis in the middle of the desert where no one can get in and, in turn, no one can leave.
  • “Beach” by The Neighbourhood: As much as I wanted to put The Neighbourhood’s popular song “Sweater Weather” on the fall playlist, I decided to go with a taste of their more recent music. “Beach” is their newest song, and everyone needs to be reminded of the beach and warm weather as we enter the colder months ahead.
  • “All We Have Is Now” by The Modern Electric: A friend mentioned The Modern Electric to me, and after looking into them I began to like this song in particular. It’s upbeat and reminds me of living in the moment and getting to know people.
  • “Can’t Feel My Face” by The Weeknd: The Weeknd is becoming increasingly popular, and this is one of their breakthrough songs that released late this summer and moved up the charts on Pop radio stations.
  • “Let It Happen” by Tame Impala: This song is a favorite from Tame Impala’s “Currents” album released on July 17. Tame Impala’s voice is very unique. I also enjoy the songs “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards” and “Yes I’m Changing” because they’re really smooth, and the experience of listening to them is truly like no other for unexplainable reasons.
  • “a beautiful exit” by Miguel: People suggested Miguel to me, and quite frankly this was the only non-explicit song I could find that I liked. It’s one of those cool songs where police jargon is playing in the background, and he has a good voice.
  • “September” by Earth, Wind & Fire: A fall playlist is not complete without this song. Also, SHOUT OUT TO MADAME LHOMET’S FRENCH REGIONS CLASS.
  • “Alive” by Sia: This is Sia’s most recent song, and I put it on the playlist to remind us, especially seniors, that we’re still breathing.
  • “Lay It All On Me” by Rudimental ft. Ed Sheeran: I think Rudimental and Ed Sheeran work really well together in this song, but that could be biased because I love most things Ed Sheeran.
  • “Electric Love” by Børns: Though this song came out in 2014, I only recently discovered it while browsing through Spotify. It’s a quality, upbeat song.
  • “The Shade” by Metric: This song came out early last summer, and pumps me up every time I listen to it. I enjoy doing homework to it, but that may not be for everyone.
  • “Lay By Me” by firekid: I stumbled across this song while browsing the “New Releases” category on Spotify. This song is very enjoyable, and I believe that firekid has a very promising career ahead of him.
  • “Make Them Gold” by Chvrches: To top off the playlist I picked a song from Chvrches newest album “Every Open Eye.” I love this song because it has a positive message and talks about the best parts within us.
