This month’s playlist features songs by Mac DeMarco, The Beatles, and Rod Stewart.

There is nothing quite like a midwestern fall, the leaves are finally turning and the air is crisping up. This month’s playlist features a more earthy, acoustic style to match the vibe of harvest time. Made up of primarily classic and folk-rock, with hints of modernism sprinkled in, the October playlist displays a nice mix of natural tones and colors. Follow the stories of a traveling man who stumbles upon an old girlfriend on Bob Dylan’s “Tangled up in Blue” and the misadventures of a good samaritan on “The Weight” by The Band. The October playlist also sports some amazing solo sections. Like the ominous guitar runs on “From the Beginning,” or the jazzy piano section on Van Morrison’s “Moondance.” So break out the flannels and sweaters, and enjoy a collection of fall sounds spanning six decades of music, on Westside Wired’s October playlist.
