Monday has arrived – as if you needed a reminder about that. Princess Nagger has an orthodontist appointment this morning to have impressions done for retainers, because she’ll be getting her braces off in a few weeks! The two years flew by, that’s for sure! Of course, if you ask her that, she’ll deny it vehemently…heh.
Since it is Monday, it’s time for some music! This week’s theme is Tunes about Autumn – my favorite time of year! Though I have to say, the song choices for autumn were slim, seems the good ones are geared towards the other three seasons. But I did find some! So grab your favorite tune(s) and dance along, won’t you?
Let’s start with a song from one of my favorite artists – it fits in with the Autumn theme with autumnal lyrics:
I don’t know why all the trees change in the fall / But I know you’re not scared of anything at all / Don’t know if Snow White’s house is near or far away / But I know I had the best day with you today
It’s no secret this artist knows how to write a love song. But did you know her very best one is about her mom? The artist was quoted as saying:
“[This] is a song that I wrote without telling my mom. I wrote it in the summertime, and I recorded it secretly, too. I had this idea that I wanted to play it for her for Christmas. So when I got the track I synced up all of these home videos from when I was a little kid to go along with the song like a music video, and played it for her on Christmas Eve and she was crying her eyes out.”
The artist eventually went on to share her homemade video for the song, although the track was never released as an official single. Bonus: tons of video of this artist as an adorable baby!
Here’s the adorable Taylor Swift with “The Best Day”:
Next up we’re going to switch gears with one of my favorite classical pieces of my favorite season, autumn.
Give a listen to Vivaldi with “Autumn”:
Next up is an English singer-songwriter whose song boasts the lyrics:
Do you ever wonder if the stars shine out for you?
Like autumn leaves
And hush now
Close your eyes before the sleep
And you’re miles away
And yesterday you were here with me
I’d say that fits the theme, don’t you?
Here’s the talented Ed Sheeran with “Autumn Leaves”:
While looking for autumn songs, I stumbled across this Welsh alternative rock band that was formed in 1986. This song is the second single from an album released in 2007. It peaked and debuted at number 10 in the UK Singles Chart.
Without further ado, here’s Manic Street Preachers with “Autumnsong”:
That’s a wrap for this week – have a great Monday!
