Music Monday

Great Fall Albums

I admit it, I am one of those who cannot listen to Christmas music until after Thanksgiving. Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas. I love being able to celebrate it for as long as we can, but I also love living in the moment. In this moment the air is starting to chill, the colors are starting to change, and the fog is settling in on the ground. I cannot help but appreciate this moment for what it is. I don’t want to be so excited about Santa, and little baby Jesus, and sharing beautiful gifts with my loved ones that I forget to appreciate the mystery of the seasons changing. That said, here is a short list of some of my absolute favorite albums to listen to through the fall. They help me to relax and enjoy that sweet mystery.

Coldplay - Parachutes
Miles Davis - Kind Of Blue
Sarah Mclachlan - all of her albums...
India.Arie - Voyage To India
David Gray - Greatest Hits
Peter Gabriel - Anything by this man...
Mumford & Sons - Sigh No More
Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova - Once Soundtrack

There are so many more artists...but that’s the short list. Post your favorite fall artists as comments to this blog post and I will feature your lists up until Thanksgiving, and then we’ll be onto the holiday tunes we’re all anxious for! Like Everly's Fireside album. *wink, wink*

Enjoy! Happy Monday to you!
