Your October Playlist

Happy October! October is without a doubt one of my favorite months. Its even right on up there with July, which says a LOT, and which is my absolute favorite month because helloooo summer and hellooooo my birthday. Anyways, ITS OCTOBER 2! ALREADY! Geez, time flies! I’ve put together a list of my favorite songs for the fall. These picks come from all different styles and all different genres, so they might feel a little random, but I hope you’ll add them to your October playlist and fall in love with them like I did.

Megan Davies

First – COVERS. Who doesn’t love song covers?! If you haven’t heard of Megan Davies, you’re doing it wrong. Seriously. Listen:


Lennon & Maisy // Ain’t No Rest for The Wicked

I first fell in love with Lennon and Maisy’s music when they released a cover of Call Your Girlfriend on YouTube. Since then, their climb to fame has happened in the blink of an eye. They’ve recorded so many more covers since Call Your Girlfriend and even starred on the TV show, Nashville!

Louisa Wendorff // Blank Space/Style

And here’s another cover you’ll LOVE:

The Weeknd // Can’t Feel My Face

I saw The Weeknd perform this song on the VMAs, and I think its his best yet. He sounds so good live. How cute is his dancing?!

The Staves // Gone Tomorrow

The Staves are a trio of sisters from England and I recently discovered them! And I am SO glad. I listen to their music when I’m studying or hanging out on a cozy, rainy day. Their songs always have a really elaborate story, which I love, and I always spend way more time trying to figure out what they’re talking about than actually singing along.

Wet // You’re the Best

I found this song when I was wayyyy in over my head with Spotify and its been stuck in my head ever since. Its sorta weird, but very cool and the remix is awesome too.


Sufjan Stevens // The Predatory Wasp of the Palisades Is Out to Get Us!

I always play this song when I’m driving in my car for a while or when I’m cleaning my room. Its so light and fun, and for some strange reason, it really motivates me to DO something. What do you think?

The Cranberries // Ode to My Family

Pleeeease tell me you’ve heard of The Cranberries. This band is amazing. Awesome lead singer with a crazy good voice. Hear for yourself:

Ben Rector // Forever Like That

If I ever take guitar lessons, THIS is the song I’m going to learn how to play and sing first. Ben Rector is my new favorite and I can’t stop listening to his songs. His voice is so raw and one of a kind.

I hope you’ve enjoyed listening to my October picks, and click here to connect with me on Spotify! Also, if you’re a student, sign up for Spotify Premium for a discounted price! Which songs are you loving right now? I’m always searching for songs to add to my playlist!
