Tunes for Fall

FORREST IRVINE

Summer songs are a big deal in the entertainment world, where it seems like friends and entertainment news sources alike are jumping to deem songs like Cardi B’s “I Like It”, Drake’s “In My Feelings”, or Ariana Grande’s “God is a Woman” as the champ of summer 2018. With the idea of a summer song being trod out past the breaking point for some, here are some classics that could begin to capture fall vibes for once.

“Just Like Heaven” by The Cure

One of the warmest hugs of a love song ever.

“Young Americans” by David Bowie

Breezy and simultaneously uplifting to listen to and sobering to think about.

“Hump de Bump” by Red Hot Chili Peppers

Less rock, more funk from the band.

“The A-Team” by Ed Sheeran

Ed’s best song.

“Desire” by U2

An unexpected kind of classic pre-Motown jam.

“Homecoming” by Kanye West feat. Chris Martin

An ode to the memory of a hometown.

“Empire State of Mind” by Jay-Z feat. Alicia Keys

What “Homecoming” is for Chicago, “Empire” is for NYC.

“Fake Plastic Trees” by Radiohead

Way more accessible than the band is known for.

“Synchronicity II” by The Police

Pure chilly 80’s vibeyness.

“Charlie Brown” by Coldplay

Captures the feeling of youth and truly living.

“Born to Run” by Bruce Springsteen

The all-time bar setter for the depiction of American, broad, emotional masculinity.

“Paradise by the Dashboard Light” by Meat Loaf

An 8-minute mini-rock musical.

“Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting)” by Elton John

Full of great rock and piano riffs.

“Roses” by OutKast

R&B from the timeless André 3000.

“Little Red Corvette” by Prince

An rare perspective on the tension of gender dynamics.
