Monthly Mixtape: Pumpkin Patches and “I Got a Rock.”



Ahhhhh this is my absolute favorite month of the year. My favorite TIME of year. I want to punch it in the face I love it so dern much.

Halloween costumes – check.

Pumpkins on the front porch for all the squirrels to masticate and destroy – check.

New trench coat eagerly waiting for me in my closet – check.

All that’s left is your tunes, brah!

Sorry I called you brah.

This mix – while there’s no real theme, it’s really just a collection of songs I’ve been wildly obsessing over lately. Hannah Cohen, duh. Sam Evian’s cover of Right Down the Line – perfection. Vintage Joni Mitchell that will make you want to cue up the scene from Love Actually – when the mom opens the Joni CD and realizes it’s not the heart shaped necklace and she goes to her room and sobs for a second then shakes her hands and pulls herself together for the sake of her kids – and bawl your face off for thirty hours.

It’s all a bit dreamy. A little washy with ’60s and ’70s mood. Sixteen songs from top to bottom. And I promise, every one of them will make you bob your head, give your heart chamber a little extra blood, it’s all just good mood music!

Without holding you hostage for a second longer, I give you . . . The “Pumpkin Patch and ‘I Got a Rock'” mix.

Raise your hand if you get the “I Got a Rock” reference. DO NOT LET ME DOWN.

And as always, you can peruse the “Monthly Mixtape” section of my site for aaaaaaaaalllllll the playlists. There are tons. Really. I should be locked up.

    Listening now IN ORDER and getting weird looks from coworkers for desk bop. Give a listen to Lucius's cover of Right Down the Line -

    HI Bev, Since you are totally stylish, I bet you got yourself one nice trench coat. I have been looking like mad for one that a)isn't super frumpy and b)isn't 5 bazillion dollars (ie, Burberry) ...can you tell me what brand you went for?
