Life's Soundtrack - An Explosion of Color
I haven't wanted to admit that summer is over, I've found myself refusing to give up my sandals or start pulling out sweaters. But a strange thing happened over the weekend, I started noticing the explosion of color fall has brought. It seems everywhere I go the colors are richer, deeper and warmer. I'm starting to remember the coziness that fall brings. I've even found myself craving a stormy day so I can curl up with a good book and a cup of my favorite herbal tea.
On this, the last day of September, I think I'm finally ready to let go of summer and embrace all the beauty of fall. I thought we could welcome autumn with a playlist dedicated to color - all the colors that make up fall: gold, orange, red, the deep greens and warm tones that start to fill our world during this time of year.
What are some of your favorite colorful songs? Have a favorite colorful artist? Let's put together a playlist dedicated to all things color (and for any of you who maybe living in the Southern Hemisphere - help us dream of the beautiful colors of Spring!) I'll get us started:
Carla Bruni - Autumn
The Greencard - Here You Are
Coldplay - Yellow
Eva Cassidy - Fields of Gold
Alexi Murdoch - Orange Sky
David Nail - Red Light
Last week's list was a little more complicated, but you still came through with some great suggestions. I think its the perfect mix for those times when you are doubting yourself or working up the nerve to give something a try. Let me know what you think.
Don't forget to share your "colorful" picks for songs and artists in the comments. As always thanks for helping me build the playlists that get me through the week.
