Autumn Playlist with Music Selections
If you came to this post just seeing the “autumn playlist” in the title and thinking of your favorite fall songs, not to worry. Here are a few musical selections in rotation for me this fall. You can listen to these three Spotify playlists with a free account. I didn’t make them, but I like them a lot:
- One of my favorite podcasters, Danny Pellegrino, has a great music playlist for fall. Here’s a link that will keep you set for almost 7 hours of tunes.
- If you’ve followed the coastal grandmother trend on TikTok, then you might already be familiar with Lex and her Spotify playlists. Here’s one with fall selections.
- And last but not least, the team at Spotify has a Jazz for Autumn collection. You might find that this playlist is perfect for classroom sharing, too.
