Fuel for Fire: an autum mix for 2014

In summer -- 
". . . the sun rises out of the morning's haze with authority and potency, and standing on your top step at seven in the morning . . . you know that the dew will be melted off the grass by eight and that the dust on the back roads will hang depthless and still in the air for five minutes after a car's passage; and that by one in the afternoon it will be up to ninety-five . . . and the sweat will roll off your arms like oil and stick your shirt to your back in a widening patch . . . 
But when fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you."
 -Stephen King
For me, this playlist is like an old friend settling in and telling stories -- even the songs that are new to me. It takes out it's pipe and cuts the cold air with its wisps of warm smoke. It is the rhythmic sound of dead leaves crunching under an old rocking chair. And if you listen closely, it is the syncopation of a fluttering heartbeat that is falling in love -- with the quiet crisp air, and with somebody.
