The Decemberists – Sons & Daughters

Fall songs have a sense of security, of having achieved something, of satisfaction, of having looked back at the work you've done. And this song - despite all the "when we arrive" looking towards the future part - strikes me as taking satisfaction at what has been accomplished - "Making this cold harbor now home"

And darn it those final repeated lines just make you feel good.

The Avett Brothers – Laundry Room

Welcome to Philosopher week. I'm going to try this week for songs that sound like Autumn to me. It's a weird season to try to score, I think. There's a fullness, right? Contemplative, but not sparse like winter. Not necessarily the sing-along songs of summer or the hopeful, happy songs of spring.

So I'm gonna give it a shot, and see what I come up with.

First, one of my favorite songs of the past 20 years, and one with the tempo switch that just seems to pick up the steam and energy of fall, instead of the quiet reflectiveness of winter.

Commander Cody — Hot Rod Lincoln

I'm a little too young to have gotten into Commander Cody but I remember some older cousins who were into him and I had a sense that he was kinda a freaky country guy. This was their only "hit" but they had a pretty loyal following for a while in the early 70s and definitely had a proto-influence on alt-country bands in the 90s. George Frayne, AKA Commander Cody, passed away a week ago from cancer at the age of 77.
