There's no arguing that Fall is the best season to spend a Sunday morning wrapped up in bed, walk through some orange foliage, or sit down with a good book and a great cup of coffee. In my opinion, Fall is best when paired with a killer acoustic playlist. There's just something about soft pianos, melodic guitars, and soft voices that just makes the falling leaves seem ten times more beautiful. So here's the acoustic playlist you definitely need in your life this Fall:
1. Girls (Acoustic)- The 1975
This just might be my favorite song on this playlist. The 1975 trades in their rough electric guitars and heavy drums for a softer acoustic sound on this track. It honestly may change your life.
2.Autumn Leaves- Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran has always slain the acoustic game, but this lesser-known track is perfect for walking to class in the changing seasons. It's even called Autumn Leaves. Bravo, Ed, bravo.
3. Dear No One- Leroy Sanchez
I don't understand why this kid isn't famous. His voice sounds like cake tastes. His take on Tori Kelly's song gives me life. I will be your no one, Leroy. I will.
4. Home to Mama- Justin Bieber
Okay, JB is kind of a d*ck. It's basically fact at this point. But I would be lying if I said I didn't play this song on repeat for the last two weeks. Before you judge me, just give it a listen. His voice is so beautiful that my Bieber Fever may be making an appearance for the first time since 2011.
5. Style- Thirdstory
I don't know where these three guys came from, or where they learned to do what they do, but I am 100% blown away. They harmonize like no other, and put a PERFECT acoustic spin on Taylor Swift's "Style".
6. 1000 Years- Liza Anne Feat. Josh Savage
General consensus on this song: sad, but good. It's got the perfect combo of piano and guitar to make your rainy sunday a little bit better.
7. Wasn’t Expecting That- Jamie Lawson
Ed Sheeran signed Jamie Lawson to Gingerbread Records, so I'm not surprised that he's so frickin' incredible. You've probably heard this song because it's currently sweeping the charts, but if you haven't, you're welcome. Also, if you don't cry at this video, you have no heart.
8. Fast Car- Boyce Avenue and Kina Granis
This duo completely nails Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car". Their voices blend together SO well. When I first heard this cover, I didn't turn it off for six days.
9. I’m Still Here- Benjy Davis
When I first played this song on Spotify, I wasn't impressed. But after listening to it a few times through, I realized that it's actually incredible. Shout out to Benjy.
10. Georgia- Vance Joy
This song still gives me crazy chills, and Vance Joy is probably one of the greatest musicians of our time.
11. Boom Clap- Lennon and Maisy
While I'm low-key annoyed that two super young kids are more talented than I'll ever be, they are amazing. You probably remember their incredible version of "Call Your Girlfriend", this is even better. Also, they have the coolest names EVER.
12. Blank Space/ Style (Taylor Swift Mashup)- Louisa Wendorf and Devin Dawson
I usually wouldn't dream of putting the same song on one playlist twice, but this version was so mind-blowing that I couldn't leave it off. I can't even put into words how much I love it.
13. Next To You- Conor Maynard feat. Ebony Day
Conor Maynard was a literal babychild when he did this Chris Brown rendition, but it's still my favorite of all of his covers. His voice is straight-up angelic.
Enjoy, and Happy Fall!
