12 Songs To Listen To In The Fall

12 Songs To Listen To In The Fall

I think I've listened to the entire Mazzy Star discography twenty times this week.

I must be the most terrible person to be with from late October to end of March (length varies depending on year) because when I'm cold, all I can think of is the fact that I'm cold and then all I can talk about is how cold I am. It is never ending torture for myself and for everyone around me. The only thing to cure this cycle is by wearing a million layers, drinking way too much coffee and listening to music.

So if you're like me and are always cold and are looking for a way to survive, listen to these glorious tunes.

1. Fade Into You by Mazzy Star

Mazzy Star is the ultimate fall band. If you find yourself intrigued, take a gander at Halah, Take Everything, I've Gotta Stop and okay let's just face it... their entire discography.

2. Linger by The Cranberries

Ahhh.. nothing like it. Dreams is supreme as well, if you're interested. I'm hooked. Please listen.

3. Tell Me If You Wanna Go Home from the Begin Again Soundtrack

Perfect tune to jam to while going on a nice evening stroll bundled up in a blanket scarf.

4. Party Police by Alvvays

I am actually so in love with Alvvays. There is something so blast from the past about them that just makes them seem so new and fresh.

5. Where You Lead by Carole King

Makes me think of Gilmore Girls which makes me think of fall. So there you go. Listen.

6. Honey by Ill Spector

I was a deadbeat
You were so sweet
Like honey

Never heard anything more beautifully sad in my life.

7. There She Goes by The La's

The OG fall song. Nothing gets me more in the fall mood than this song.

8. Space Song by Beach House

I love this song for more reasons than the fact that it ends with the solid words of fall back.

9. Kiss Me by Sixpence None The Richer

Nothing better than jamming to this song under the comfort of my comforter. Seriously my favorite thing.

10. All Too Well by Taylor Swift

This song is very different from the rest on my list, but it is so necessary. Taylor Swift has songs for every emotion, including one for what it feels like for being cold in the fall and guess what? This is it.

11. Peppermint by Say Lou Lou

Your apartment was my world
The light bulbs were the stars
The fire burned like our hearts

It warms my soul just reading the lyrics.

12. Dog Years by Maggie Rogers

Maggie Rogers soothes me alvvays with the glorious melody of Dog Years.

Things I brought to college I didn't know would be a lifesaver. 

The top 5 things I brought to college I didn't know would be so useful and helpful throughout my first year,

A Trunk

Having a trunk is such a useful purchase! It has so many jobs in my dorm room. I can lock my valuables in it, use it as a step stool, have extra seating for guests when they come in and it can also be used as a table! It's also a cute decoration.


A blessing in disguise. 50% of the time I wear a hat when my hair isn't doing what it is supposed to do. It also adds a little something extra to your outfit!

Fuzzy socks

They're honestly a saving grace! Going to school in such a cold climate, having fuzzy sicks makes everything better. Putting these on while walking around campus or even sitting in your dorm can make any day a little better and more comfortable.

Hamper with wheels

Where I attend college, the laundry room is in the basement and there is no elevator. So having a hamper with wheels has made transporting laundry so much easier.

To The Celebrities Who Didn't Wear Black To The Golden Globes

In a sea of black, red will shine through.

The Golden Globes were aired this past. If you didn't notice, Hollywood decided to coordinate their color dresses but some celebrities stuck out from the crowd like sore thumbs. The event was meant to advocate for sexual harassment and sexual assault in the entertainment industry and hoped that by making a statement with color, the message would be heard worldwide that women are no longer remaining silent when oppressed by powerful misogynists.

Maybe some missed the memo and decided to roll with it anyway, or they simply chose to remain completely separate from this highly politicized issue. Either way, the time and place for individuality may not have been a place dedicated to activism.

Blanca Blanco and Barbara Meier were among the few women who chose to wear red to the awards ceremony. People had some interesting things to say about it, too:

Some may have responded in rather funny ways, but the root of this issue is anything but humorous. These women made their statements as to why they chose not to dress in black, but people are not accepting these responses as valid.

Blanca Blanco simply responded, “I love red,” which not only refuses to address the actual issue of failure to support, but it does little to really explain her choice. If you ask a football player who refuses to kneel during the anthem why they do it, I’m sure their response wouldn’t be, “I like standing.” Every choice means something, and one can venture a guess that choices made by people of high fame are almost inherently political.

As entertainers and icons, it is important to exercise your voice and be heard and stand up for issues that impact the majority of people. To wear red when women supporting sexual harassment and assault victims are wearing black is not only disrespectful to the cause, it essentially states to these women that what they are advocating for is not worth supporting, or worse, is not worth acknowledging at all.
