Songs for Fall
Jackson Pollock, Autumn Rhythm (1930)
“I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.” – Henry David Thoreau
Though it depends on how large the pumpkin is, I generally agree with Thoreau on that one. That beings said, here are a few songs I thought you might enjoy this fall. You’ll notice most of them are either jazz or late 70s punk rock. That wasn’t my intention, it just sort of happened. I tried to avoid obvious selections such as Fleet Foxes or Monster Mash (or Fleet Foxes covering the Monster Mash).
Please share with me what songs you’re enjoying this fall. I love to see how people’s taste in music changes with the seasons. Enjoy.

As you probably know, I hope, this Sunday saw the largest climate protest in history. With over 400,000 in attendance, the People’s Climate March in NYC was more than a success, it was a catalyst. Let’s keep the momentum moving forward and urge our political leaders, as well as our corporate leaders, to start making changes now that will assure a sustainable, clean planet for future generations.
