I’ve heard this rumor that there’s a season called Fall that happens in other parts of the country. I vaguely remember it from when we lived in Louisville. At the time I remember thinking it would be my favorite season if I continued to live in a part of the country where it existed.
But, alas, that was not God’s plan for me. From Louisville we moved to TX and from TX back to AZ, farther and farther away from that mythical season. Now all I have are vague feelings and sentiments sometimes aroused by certain music:
R.E.M. performing “Nightswimming:”
Here is The Samples (at least the version of the band that most mattered) with a music video of sorts to their song “Little Silver Ring:”
Here is a brand-newly rekindled Vigilantes of Love performing a personal favorite “Nothing Like A Train:”
Here is Joe Pug with a full-band version of “Speak Plainly, Diana”
Perhaps you actually have this mythical season where you live. Perhaps, like to us in Phoenix, it is but a rumor. Is there music that reminds you of Fall? What is it?
