A “Fall” Playlist: Sans Bublé, Okay?

Maybe I’m exaggerating when I tell people that half of my early/mid twenties have been spent trying to get rid of a Michael Bublé Christmas album review I had to write during my early freelance days. It’s out there. Just…floating around online. Always and forever. I might as well marry the thing. I was 21 and so I obviously didn’t know much, but apparently I did know how to write an exceptionally cheesy bio for myself to accompany that Bublé piece. (I think that words “loves to travel” and “wants to write a book” were thrown in there. WOWIE.)

I’m coming at you today with a playlist that, I SWEAR TO YOU, has nothing to do with Michael Bublé. I’ve already written his name too many times for this piece. So uh, stopping that right now.

My commute to work these days is only about ten minutes. That’s, what, three songs? Four with traffic? Factor in getting bored of hearing those same four songs, that about 20 songs you’ll need to keep yourself entertained. So here’s what’s been hitting my ears on shuffle during that commute for the past month or so. (I know we’re not in high school anymore but somehow way too much Weezer and Third Eye Blind snuck their way onto the list. Maybe your commute will thank you for it though.)

  • FIST HEART MIGHTY DAWN DART // Ty Segall
  • FREAK OF NATURE // Broods
  • FEELS LIKE WE ONLY GO BACKWARDS // Tame Impala
  • DOG YEARS // Black Lips
  • AMERICAN MONEY // Borns
  • MILEY // swmrs
  • HANNAH // swmrs
  • EYE ON YOU // Sugar Candy Mountain
  • FOOL // Frankie Cosmos
  • WALK LIKE AN EGYPTIAN // The Bangles
  • ALL THE TIME // Bahamas
  • UNDONE — THE SWEATER SONG // Weezer

  • HOW’S IT GOING TO BE // Third Eye Blind
  • JUMPER // Third Eye Blind

  • BLUE // Marina and the Diamonds
  • GOLD // Marina and the Diamonds

(SEE YA, BUBLÉ.)
