Storytelling through songs: Fall seasonal playlists

Updated: Nov 12, 2018

We all have that song (or a few!) that we consider a go-to - whether it's a song that makes you happy, makes you think of your favorite person, brings back old memories or a song that you can just start dancing to without second thought.


I actually have plenty of those songs... and I'm a big believer that the music you play can have a huge impact on your mood. I curate playlists for... well, for nearly everything. From stormy days to nights I host trivia (look for a blog post on that later), to playlists for the days I work from home.


I'll be sharing all of my curated playlists as they get created and edited. For now, enjoy my Fall playlists created on my personal Spotify account!



city's first snowfall: A playlist of chill songs with a few upbeat surprises. Perfect for a drive full of snow flurries or a night featuring wine and candles.


Favorite songs: 'Til It's Over by Anderson .Paak, LOVEHAPPY by The Carters, Hurry by Teyana Taylor


Songs to shake it to: Close to Me by Ellie Goulding, thank u, next by Ariana Grande, Swing by Quavo





Ironically enough, in the weeks before I made the city's first snowfall playlist, I curated the sweating in sweater weather playlist to listen to during Ohio's crazy October heat swing.


sweating in sweater weather: A fun playlist reminiscent of summer time weather, without all of the pop radio hits. Perfect for the 'ripped jeans and a light sweater' days when the leaves start to turn.


Favorite songs: Jump by Julia Michaels, Saturday Sun (Ryan Riback Remix) by Vance Joy, Magic in the Hamptons by Social House


Songs that make me smile: Shotgun (The Wild Remix) by George Ezra, Can I Get Your Number by Anne-Marie


At the beginning of the season, I created the pumpkin spice + everything nice playlist.


pumpkin spice + everything nice: Fast-paced, upbeat and overall fun. Perfect for a morning spent getting ready for a fun fall day with your girls.


Favorite songs: Reel It In by Aminé, We Don't Care by Sigala, The Vamps, Eastside by benny blanco, Halsey and Khalid


Songs to take your Fall selfies to: Sangria Wine by Pharrell Williams, Delicate (Seeb Remix) by Taylor Swift, Weekend by Louis the Child, Icona Pop
