Fall is, as the Germans say, a time of “wonderblitzen” (flashes of wonder).

In fact, if fall isn’t your favorite season, I probably don’t trust you very much. Here I have compiled a playlist of my fall favorites to help get you in the mood for colored leaves and hoodie weather.

Relax to the sound of Ben Fold’s smooth croon. Rock out (introspectively) to a cut from Fireworks’ latest album, “Oh, Common Life.” Get in the spirit for the best holiday ever with Murder by Death’s Halloween-meets-Johnny Cash-esque western rock. Take these songs with you on a breezy walk and experience the musical opinion of Aaron Mook.
