GFP Autumn Songs 2010

Autumn is here. Fall has fallen. And depending on where you live, the leaves are changing color and it's starting to getting colder. Or it's snowy and freezing already.

As you may well know, music fans love making mixes. In honor of the new season, we've put our heads together and whipped up a mix of our favorite autumnal tunes. A great autumn song is quiet and subtle without the dark moodiness of its winter brethren. A great autumn song seamlessly transitions away from those hot summer anthems, like putting on a sweater after three months of skin.

You won't find any Christmas music here (that's coming next), but as Lise so graciously puts it -- here at GFP, when it comes to fall, we're all about picked acoustic instruments, honeyed vocals, and toe-tapping beats with a gentle homespun glow.

My mate actually had a Potter scarf he wore to the cafe for a fry up this morning.
