Fall 2012 Mix

I’m the kind of person who listens to one song over and over and over again. Right now that song is “New York City’s Killing Me” by Ray LaMontagne.  I could literally listen to it all day long. This time of the year makes me want to live on the East Coast. As the days get darker and colder, and the rain starts to come down, I dream of a crisp New England fall hidden away in a farmhouse in front of a roaring fireplace. This song invokes all of that in me.

All of these songs, actually, are songs that at one point or another I’ve listened to on repeat until I can’t listen anymore.

You can hear my Fall 2012 mix here. I hope you enjoy it!

    we’re like the same person. I listen to songs repeatedly – until I can’t stand it anymore. My boys are use to it by now, but I thought I was the only one.

    Love your playlist provided.

    Thanks for sharing! I totally understand the desire to ‘kill’ a good record or great song by listening over and over. I’m the same way…just drive them into the ground. I read an article once that made an interesting point about this and the human psyche – it is our way of taking the ‘essence’ of the song and absorbing it’s message and feelings and incorporating it into our own perspective more permanently. Sometimes we sap a record of it’s essence in a short amount of time because we got what we needed out of it. Others we return to time and time again over the years because they still are a source of nourishment for us.

    PS. Speaking of all this, I have been wearing out “Rumours” lately! “Dreams” and “Never Going Back” are particular faves.
