As golden leaves cover dew-soaked grass, so do warmer clothes wrap our chilled bodies. With the arrival of fall, these garments feel like old friends, as we return to the jackets and hoodies that have endured years' worth of crisp, wet weather. Music tends to work the same way, as reflective songs are intertwined with autumnal memories.
Around the NPR Music offices, we've affectionately come to call these "hoodie jams," as we delude ourselves into thinking that we can actually will a catchphrase into existence. These are the songs that make us dig our hands deeper into our pockets and pull our hoods over our heads on beautiful fall days. Please be sure to share some of your favorite fall music in the comments section below.
