Ah, can you feel that in the air? The cold winds are blowing, the air smells crisp and clear, and the leaves are turning brown and covering the ground. Oh, and that pumpkin spice smell from the local coffee store. That could only mean one thing: Fall is here.
It’s the changing of seasons as the hot summer become into brisk, chilly autumn. Instead of suffering for a cold glass of water, you can nurture a warm spot of tea in your hands. The bare, blue skies become littered with a herd of sheepish clouds. The kids are back in school, eager or anxious about their new school year. The trees start shedding their leaves and branches, while the animals prepare for the upcoming winter days.
This week, we’ll be listening to tracks from video games that set the mood for the fall season. It may be because of an upcoming festival happening in town. Perhaps the game goes through a seasonal change, allowing the player to decorate their virtual home. Maybe it’s a power that can be earned and wielded, in order to rescue someone.
Have a sit back against the couch with your favorite fall drink, and have a listen of these tracks.
