October Playlist: NATURE

One of my favourite things about living in the UK is the seasons and, by jove, Autumn is a particularly good one. Bringing out the jumpers and/or the black tights again (which, in truth, were only gone for about two days) is a joy that I think is shared by most British guys ‘n’ gals.

In the same way we like to complain about the lack of Summer (see above) it’s also an integral part of being British to comment on the nights getting dark earlier. It happens the same time every year and yet I’ve commented ‘can’t believe how dark it is’ at least three times this week.

With the Autumn love in mind, October’s #Jotify playlist is all about NATURE.

Driftwood – Travis
We’ve been having the debate on whether Travis was cool to like in the early noughties. Either way, making the Nature playlist has brought Travis back into our lives via Driftwood and we’re glad for it.

Sunny Afternoon – The Kinks
Sometimes there is sunshine.

Ain’t No Sunshine – Bill Withers
Sometimes there is no sunshine.  

Cry me a River – Justin Timberlake
Eee eee eeee eeee eeeeeeeeeeee. Very good introduction to a song.

Also, DON’T ACT LIKE YOU DON’T KNOW IT! This song offers many good opportunities for a duet which is really what the two of us look for a studio playlist song. It does however instigate the need for a toilet break. 

Time of the Season – The Zombies

High on the Tide – Fyfe Dangerfield
because it’s just a nice song.

What a Wonderful World – Louis Armstrong
Also see Louis Armstrong’s Desert Island Discs. This man’s laugh is everything.

Waterfront – Jamie Woon

Waterfalls – TLC
In the video, T-Box, Left Eye and Chilli come out of the sea and everything. 

Kiss from a Rose – Seal
From the mouth of the Botanical Lover himself: Babayyy. Need we say more

Autumn Leaves – Eva Cassidy
One of my favourite voices. 

Blackbird – The Beatles
Fun Fact: Dan first came to appreciate this song via Glee. And then he wonders why he received three Glee birthday cards that year.  

Running up that Hill – Kate Bush
Even her name is nature.

Hounds of Love – The Futureheads
We are in agreeance that this is the best cover of all time.

Wild is the Wind – David Bowie
Really keen on this cover also. And wind = nature. 

Sea of Love - Cat Power
Such a pretty song and also a great cover.
