So I went a little nuts on photographing autumn foliage this year. Then I went a little more nuts on finding songs about autumn on YouTube. Look, I was multitasking during that last bit – and some of the songs I found are bonza. Problem is, there are too many of them.
Ah, well. We’ll just have a few to start, and you can go sample ye olde Aki playlist at will, and perhaps I’ll throw a few more up over the next few weeks, before autumn (aki) is officially over.
This is so far my favorite version of “Sato no aki” (里の秋) – which as far as I can tell means something like “village of autumn” or “autumn in the village” – but some of you will know.
And some lovely autumn foliage.
So that last photo is no “Autumn Moon Over the Calm Lake,” but it’ll do.
Love that song – very mellow and melodious.
This next find surprised and delighted me quite a bit. I’m not sure what I was expecting from a group called Coldcut, but it wasn’t this smoky, jazzy-with-a-modern-beat indescribable bit of wonderful.
Discovering that song made me highly glad I’d gotten this wild idea lodged in my brainpan to begin with.
Turns out the dying season has some life in it after all…
