it's time to let go of this endless summer afternoon // playlist

it's time to let go of this endless summer afternoon is a playlist curated around the end of summer as we enter into the transitional period of the seasons. These are some of my favorite songs to listen to this time of year when it isn't quite fall yet, but not summer anymore either. It is named after a lyric from a song called "Hard Feelings/Loveless" by Lorde. Melodrama is one of my favorite albums ever, which I have written about many times over the years. To me, it perfectly captures the end of summer feeling.

So much of this playlist is also comprised of some of my other favorite artists, like The 1975, Arctic Monkeys, Haim and more. I am also working on reviews for the tenth anniversaries of The 1975's debut album and Pure Heroine by Lorde, so I have been listening to those albums in particular a lot lately and felt like they fit the theme of its time to let go of this endless summer afternoon so perfectly. 

Songs like "The Good Side" by Troye Sivan, "Caramel" by 5 Seconds of Summer and "Here Comes The Fall" by Fiona Silvers also inspired the sonic direction I went in with the curation of this playlist. I also love Taylor Swift's cover of Earth, Wind & Fire's "September" - it is the perfect time of year to be playing that song for obvious reasons!

The final song of this playlist is Phoebe Bridgers' cover of John Prine's "Summer's End", which is simultaneously so beautiful and so heartbreaking at the same time. It felt especially fitting to end it with that song because of the lyric "....summer's end came faster than we wanted".

I hope you enjoy listening as much as I have! 💐

I have had so much fun sharing playlists like this throughout the summer and I am excited to continue sharing more in the coming months! Be sure to follow me on Spotify to keep up to date. If you would like to check out more of my playlists click here or the links below. ♡
