today i am thankful for...music

Fantastic Mr. Fox is not only one of my favorite movies, but it is also one of my favorite soundtracks.  It reminds me of Thanksgiving, so naturally I have started listening to it repeatedly since November arrived.

It is no secret that I am a sucker for anything associated with holidays.  In fact, I go out of my way to associate things with holidays and seasons.  Music in particular is the easiest to do this, which is one of the reasons why I love it so much.  When it's Fall, I have my standards:  Louis Armstrong (and any jazz), Frank Sinatra (although this is more of a gateway to Christmas music as it becomes closer to Christmastime), Sufjan's Age of Adz (I saw him last October when this album came out, so of course I associate it with Fall now), Simon & Garfunkel (especially my vinyl records at home, which I miss dearly), Vampire Weekend....to name a few.  I also create playlists to listen to.  In fact, I will share with you "Fall 2011 Part 1" here:



Do you have any seasonal favorites?

I always associate things with different seasons, too! Simon & Garfunkel are on my fall playlist, as well, and Frank Sinatra always reminds me of Christmas. :)

Also, Fantastic Mr. Fox is, well, pretty fantastic.
