FALL in Love With This Seasonal Playlist

If you scrolled all the way down to the bottom of my staff profile on this website— don’t actually do that, but if you did – you would see that the fifth article of mine that was published focused on my love of the fall season. Even now, two years later, I haven’t changed a bit in that sense. Thus, I’ve kept the annual habit of making fall playlists for the past three seasonal cycles. In my opinion, which is the correct opinion, at least on this matter, I have single-ish-handily curated the best fall playlist ever. 

I am now going to grace you with its contents. You are so very welcome in advance.

(Note: the songs are cataloged by when I added them to my playlists, with the first song having been added in September of 2021 and the last song  in September of 2023 🤓.)
