"What's a good song for me to listen to right now in the November fall?"

My girlfriend has been pimping Franz Ferdinand's "The Dark of the Matinee" all day.

That interview had nothing about shampoo. AT. ALL.

And now I have stinky, matted hair.

So I have two choices: (1) I can hope that there will be some content in the VERY near future about shampoo on JSDC or (2) Become a rasta man.

Naturally, I would lean toward 2 because of the chicks, but I feel silly saying "mahn".

For November falling, you're gonna want to listen to Wilco's "Venus Stop the Train' and 'Rhythm'.

But they seem to go with autumn for me.

I am totally against readers submitting questions to writers and having the writer answer them.

I think it's just, you know, not natural.

I know it's a little bit early, but I love the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and the smell of woodsmoke always seems to evoke fond memories of their music, plus I think they have a new CD out that I may have to buy...

I had this urge to listen to Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon today. As you know, it's not just a single song, but it works for me at least. It got chilly here and started raining, and the cd just felt right for the first day of November.

From Q
A good Fall nighttime song, for me, is Steely Dan's "Deacon Blues". Your mileage may vary. I used to listen to it on long drives home on chilly fall nights, and now it always seems just right in the Fall- maybe because it's a song about slowing down, shifting gears...much like the weather about now. (Though it's a good song year-round, but "My Old School" kicks it with a tasty groove anytime. Just sayin')

November fall, huh... in L.A.??? [figuratively scratching head]

Okay... here goes:

"Indigo Eyes" by Peter Murphy has his amazing voice and and beautiful music. It will continue to age well.

"Children" [orig. version] by Robert Miles - Beautiful, melodic, piano... techno style, but less so than the popular "Dream" version.

"Nowhere Girl" by B-Movie is classic 80's KROQ with a very long, un-KROQ-like, piano to open it.

"Cool #9" by Joe Satriani. Instrumental rock guitar that actually has song structure, not just 5 minutes of shredding like most guitar gods.

"Uncertain Smile" by The The. Everyone MUST listen to this one.

Could go on, of course, but... nah.

I was at the Gym a day or two ago and found myself listening to REM. Old REM, from my high school days. Seemed appropriate as the season transitions from summer to fall to be listening to songs I associate with transition from High School to College (go Hokies!).

I know this is totally nerdy, but one should go with what one's knows, eh? Before I lose my point, at this time of year I always listen to George Winston's December album.

I'll second Curt's vote for George Winston's December. If you're feeling the piano, I would also recommend Solo Piano by Philip Glass (especially "Metamorphosis One").

However, if you're looking for something a little more rock and roll, I usually go with Live's Throwing Copper.

IMHO, the whole cd has a great feel to it that complements fall/winter weather. Of course, you only asked for one song, so I guess I'll recommend "Lightning Crashes".

I'm going to go iTunes around for your music now.

Stef - After one of your previous comments, I checked out the soundtrack to Elizabethtown. Everyone should go download the song "Come Pick Me Up" by Ryan Adams right now.

AJ - The shampoo talk is in the "previous entry" link in this entry.

Wash, rinse, dance party, repeat.

Today, where in beautiful southern Indiana it is unseasonably warm at 67 degrees, and every tree is a brilliant orange or cranberry red - my only cd choice was the soundtrack for "Garden State." A favorite for sure, but an absolute perfect compliment to this fine day.
Glad The Gunn is alive, and will hopefully be well soon!

I am also partial to the live Farm Aid album on a nice fall day. Can't beat a Beck/Willie Nelson duet! Fall is definitely my favorite season.

Jess, Come Pick Me Up is my favorite song on the cd. I listen to it every day on my way to work. Sugar Blue by Jeff Finlin is also quite good. Not as good as Come Pick Me Up, but it's good.
Those two along with the Tom Petty songs and Elton John are the only songs that I'm not sick of yet on that soundtrack.

"November Rain" - Guns N'Roses
"Rain on the Scarecrow" - John Mellencamp
"Runaway Train" - Soul Asylum
"One of Us" - Joan Osborne
"Fire and Rain" - James Taylor

Any song from any of EPMD's first four albums. Seriously. Old school EPMD is a force to be reckoned with and should be listened to all year long.

Great song off of a fantastic album called Emblems.

I like Tracy Chapman on cold fall days... And Dido... and this has nothing to do with the topic, but I really like the pics of you in the trees...

This is awesome.

I’m saving a load of your music recommendations so that I can stretch out the discovery.

I will have new music for many a rainy day to come.

Kelli – Thanks for the photo feedback. (I always do wonder, after all.) I have similar stuff to add to the book page once we roll it over.

From Rick
I have been partial to the song "Photograph" from the new Nickleback album. Reminds me of college, and college always brings me to think about the fall.

Jungle Love by Morris Day and the motherfuckin Time

Someday I will have a serious comment. Someday.

I think you should listen to "First Day of Spring" by the Gandharvas. (Canadian band.)

Don't let the calendar tell you what season it is. Make autumn your bitch!
