Ultimate Autumn Playlist

Last fall as a small freshman, I spent many mornings sitting alone in Clark dining hall cultivating playlists. Many of the songs on these playlists had much jazz and soul influence (but not all of them), and I have found myself going back to these songs as the season approaches. These tunes will have you feeling like you’re in “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” or longing to wear your best turtleneck. The hottest fall soundtrack will accompany you on your walks to class. If you’re into any of these things, hopefully this post finds you well. 🙂 **These songs are not strictly autumn themed, but their sound will hit you right in all of your autumn-loving places**
