A Beatles playlist for autumn

A Beatles playlist for autumn

September 14, 2023

As the leaves turn golden and the air becomes crisp, there's something enchanting about the autumn season that pairs perfectly with the timeless melodies of The Beatles. Whether you're taking a scenic drive, sipping a PSL, or simply enjoying the ambiance, here's a handpicked playlist of Beatles songs to provide the perfect soundtrack for your autumn activities.

Rain

It’s no surprise to hear The Beatles singing about the weather, in true British fashion. This song holds echoes of the summer just passed with images of sipping lemonade in the shining sun, but maybe the rain can be just as enjoyable? The Beatles seem to think so. Perhaps this track will have you dancing in the puddles.

Norwegian Wood

The folksy sound and storytelling of this track evoke images of cosy evenings and crackling fireplaces (but hopefully not the kind of fire referenced in the song). The sitar in this track will have you hoping for an Indian summer—or you can travel even further East with Haruki Murakami’s novel inspired by, and named after, this song.

In My Life

This reflective ballad captures the essence of nostalgia and change, making it an ideal companion for an autumn walk: ‘All these places had their moments / With lovers and friends, I still can recall / Some are dead and some are living / In my life, I've loved them all’.

Blackbird

With its acoustic simplicity and poignant lyrics, ‘Blackbird’ offers a message of hope and resilience. At face value, the lyrics evoke images of nature—blackbirds are commonly sighted until October. However, Paul McCartney actually wrote the song about the Civil Rights Movement. As October is Black History Month, here is some more music to soundtrack your autumn.

I'm Only Sleeping

As the days grow shorter, this dreamy song captures the desire to stay in bed just a little longer (or hibernate altogether). Or if you can’t do that, perhaps you can take a moment to enjoy this song whilst ‘keeping an eye on the world going by [your] window’.
