mm. 8

this may be a stretch, but i’ll go ahead and try. i have a request. [and yes, it really is 2:47 am. hoping archer sleeps soundly until 6:30 or later.]

many friends and family know of an autumn tradition we hold in our house:  the past six years, robert has compiled his favorite autumnal songs and given them to some of his nearest and dearest as tokens of the best season of all. [or the best season of fall. yes, i had to go there.]

as we have been somewhat living under a we-just-had-a-baby rock for six months, our musical horizons have somewhat dimmed this year. on top of our newest addition deterring the progress of this year’s autumn mix, robert is quite busy with his new position at fuel america and seminary. the responsibility of keeping the home and keeping traditions going has fallen heavily on my new mama shoulders.

so i need your help. if you are reading, help! i already asked for suggestions on which new album to buy a couple weeks ago. thanks for the feedback, amy. we already received mumford and are waiting on sea wolf. here’s my newest request.

what is your favorite autumn music? any particular artist that makes you crave that pumpkin spice? is there a song that makes you curl up in your flannel pjs and wool socks? do you have a personal soundtrack to the falling leaves?

    hmmm. It must have been a single he did just one time. I got it on a mix cd from a friend. Here it is on youtube:

    Ben Gibbard “you remind me of home.” I’ve been playing Lux a “I Could Have Danced All Night” by Jamie Cullum, a nice version of it. And I think “Look Out Mama” by Hooray for the Riff Raff is a fun new song. Do you have Spotify?? A great way to sample these songs before you buy them.
