Autumn 2012 Mix Tape

by LeeAnne on December 5, 2012

Oops, almost forgot to post my playlist for the season!  I have to say, this is my favorite playlist of the year.  I’ve gone through it dozens of times and I’m not even close to being sick of it.  There have been some great new artists and new albums catching my attention in recent months, including dubstep violinist Lindsey Stirling’s full-length debut, trendy Icelandic imports Of Monsters and Men, and a crazy-good new album from an older favorite, Brandi Carlile.  I’m apparently obsessed with Jack White’s cover of “Love Is Blindness,” as it was also on my last mix (didn’t realize I’d repeated it until I was preparing this post, LOL).  Like “Love Is Blindness,” I was introduced to “It’s Time” by Imagine Dragons via a movie trailer—this time, The Perks of Being a Wallflower.  I’m currently on the hunt for a stand-alone download of the “One” cover by Damien Rice, used in the trailer for The Impossible.  My advice: keep your Shazam app at the ready during movie previews!  ;)  But let’s get to the list: Here are the songs currently in heavy rotation on my iPod, whether new, new-to-me, or old favorites that I’ve come back to for one reason or another. Click the iTunes links to preview.  And, enjoy!
