Autumnal Melancholy

That beautiful harvest moon we had a few days ago, coupled with the official beginning of Autumn can make for a melancholy mood. Summer is over, temperatures are dropping and perhaps some memories are lingering of warm, romantic nights.

Perhaps this is why there are so many songs of Fall that are of a wistful, contemplative, almost woebegone nature. Autumn Leaves is the first tune that comes to mind, in particular the Frank Sinatra version.

Others that reflect this time of year:

Autumn of My Life
It Was A Very Good Year
Autumn in New York
Early Autumn
Autumn Serenade
Indian Summer
September Song

But Autumn does not have to be dull! Check out these cheerful and seasonal vintage items. All now available.
