Billy Joel – Famous Last Words

This might be the most "autumn" song I know, in terms of lyrics, emotion, music, etc. Also this is probably my favorite Billy Joel song - and I like a lot of them. Also, it's kind of cool, but this is the last song on his last album. "There may be other words some other day", but for now there still haven't been.

The live version ain't so great, so I'm giving you the studio cut here too:

Jenny Lewis – Heads Gonna Roll

Jenny Lewis has gotten so much praise and attention over the years, and, on the strength of Rilo Kiley, rightfully so. But I never really liked all that much of her solo work, despite giving it plenty of chances. It seemed like she was skating by on reputation. I very much enjoy a lot of her latest album though. It definitely wasn't an instant hit for me, but it seems to have grown in depth.

I especially dig how this live performance captures the cavernous sound of the album version.

Nina Simone – I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be Free

Composed by jazz pianist Billy Taylor, this song was originally an instrumental called “I Wish I Knew”. Taylor recorded it in November 1963 with Grady Tate on drums, Ben Tucker on bass, and a horn section. He also wrote the first verse of lyrics, then collaborated with Dick Dallas on the rest. Ms. Simone recorded the song, now retitled as “I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be Free,” for her 1967 album Silk & Soul. She performs it here at Montreux ‘76.
