A Playlist For … A Fall Rom-Com Soundtrack

It’s officially fall, and while I started watching Halloween movies in August, it’s now acceptable to do so. Fall is my favorite season; with the foliage, cool breeze and halloween decorations, it simply has to be. It hasn’t felt like fall to me this year yet, so in order to make sure it does I’ve been watching a lot of fall/Halloween movies. That being said, I would be lying if I wrote that this playlist wasn’t inspired by one of the best rom-coms ever made, “When Harry Met Sally.” 

During the fall, I like to listen to a lot of Fiona Apple, Joni Mitchell, The Velvet Underground, etc. However, watching “When Harry Met Sally” has me wanting to listen to only jazz, it seems. This weekend I was driving home from apple picking, going through my playlists and no song felt fitting, thus the creation of this playlist. I hope you enjoy the songs and if you haven’t I highly recommend watching “When Harry Met Sally.”
