Something Wicked This Way Comes

Wednesday, October 16, 2019


Lately I've enjoyed listening to a mix of jubilant big band swing and whimsical soundtracks on these overcast, rainy October days. There's nothing like strolling along on a windy day, leaves swirling on the sidewalk and trees rustling in the breeze, while an autumn soundtrack plays in your ears. 


Here's October's--aptly named Something Wicked This Way Comes. It's a mix of autumn jazz, film soundtracks, folksy rock, and Halloween tunes. The link above leads to the playlist whereas each song is linked individually below. I can attest that it's perfect for a commute, puttering around the house in the evening or deep cleaning on the weekend, having done all three last week. Enjoy!
