Autumnal Thoughts, Autumnal Tunes

Planet Earth, which we humans increasingly have been making a mess of since the Industrial Revolution began in the late 1700s, nonetheless has remained reliable in various ways. It keeps on spinning, for one thing, and traveling around the Sun, for another. Good thing that it does, no? If those movements were thrown out of whack, we, along with every entity taking up earthly space, would be goners in a couple of blinks of an eye.

Well, as we know, on the 22nd of September those good ol’ reliable movements brought about the autumnal equinox and the vernal equinox in, respectively, the northern and southern hemispheres. This was due to the Sun being directly above the equator, by the way. For me, a resident of the north, this event officially marked the beginning of my favorite time of year — fall — and prompted me to gather some thoughts about that season. Here they are, along with a few recordings that capture fall’s cozy, mellow essence. Damn straight, I’m in an autumnal mood!

This is the main reason why I like autumn as much as I do: I was born in late October, smack in the heart of fall. And my birthday has been lovingly acknowledged and celebrated, by one combination of people or another, every year of my life. Over time it became only natural for me to associate autumn with my birth anniversary. How could I not, seeing that autumn never fails to whisper frequent reminders in my ear about the approaching big day? And when that day arrives, autumn, behind the scenes, is one of the celebrants. Yeah, autumn loves me, and I therefore love autumn back, you dig?

Hatboro, Pennsylvania

To meld with autumn righteously and timely, on its first day this year I took a long walk through Hatboro, a cute town a few miles from where I live in the Philadelphia suburbs. I headed there with the newly-hatched season fully on my mind. The mid-day temperature was lovely, about 73° F (23° C), the skies were as blue as you could hope for, and a light breeze ruffled the few strands of hair that remain on the crown of my head. In other words, the day was pretty damn well ideal. How sweet it was not to be sweating like a pig, which I had done numerous times during walks in the just-departed summer. Autumn weather suits me just fine.

Produce Junction (Hatboro, Pennsylvania)
Hints of gold in a tree in Hatboro, Pennsylvania

Hatboro was starting to get its autumnal mode in order. For instance, I saw scarecrows on a couple of porches and in a couple of store windows, and I gazed with admiration at the arrays of pumpkins in Produce Junction, a store on Hatboro’s main drag. But there was little evidence of fall in the billions of leaves within Hatboro’s boundaries. Only in a smattering of trees did I notice a changing of the color guard, such as in a tree outside of Produce Junction. Hints of gold decorated that specimen, harbingers of full-blown color transformations yet to come. I’m eagerly awaiting mid-to-late autumn’s golds, russets, burgundies and ambers. That palette grabs me powerfully each year, yet tenderly. Yes, autumn is a period of beauty that goes down as satisfyingly as comfort food.

As I walked through Hatboro, I pulled some autumn tunes out of my memory bank and let passages of them play silently in my head. I’ve always loved Autumn Almanac, by The Kinks, and Van Morrison’s Autumn Song. They provided part of my stroll’s soundtrack. As did Harvest Moon, a Neil Young composition that quite a number of musicians have covered. Young’s version is special. It makes me go limp with wonder, so beautiful do I find it. In Hatboro, those songs, and a few others, kept me company excellently.

Back home later that day I did some research into fall-themed songs, discovering Eva Cassidy’s live rendition of Autumn Leaves (music by Joseph Kosma, English lyrics by Johnny Mercer). With vocals emanating from Cassidy’s most-private chambers, this performance would break the hearts of all but the stoniest. And I reconnected with Autumn Serenade (music by Peter DeRose, lyrics by Sammy Gallop), off the album that the famous saxophonist John Coltrane recorded in 1963 with the not-so-famous vocalist Johnny Hartman. A bit more research would have revealed many others, so deep a hold has autumn maintained on songwriters past and present.

Rather than overload this essay with YouTube presentations, I’ve decided to limit the recordings to three. I think you’ll enjoy the following Young, Cassidy and Coltrane/Hartman works. Be well, boys and girls. And, as I usually mention, please don’t be shy about adding your comments.

    “Season of mist and mellow fruitfulness”. I’m never ready to let go of summer, but when autumn arrives, I remember I like it more. Nice song choices. Do you know October by U2. Not a big fan of U2 these days, but I liked their early stuff, and that one is totally different: a short piano mood piece which captures the season perfectly.

    Well, you DEFINITELY got me with Coltrane & Johnny Hartman, two of my faves and two of the best of all time. But I loved the others too, so thanks for the memories. And the music. I don’t know Hatboro, but I love Philadelphia (& Rosemont where my cousin Lynn lives) and fall. Which was also lovely in the Virginia of my childhood and the Georgia of my earlier life. Sadly, we do not observe fall in California. In the Bay Area we go from summer fog to September/October heat to rain. I seldom complain about walking weather almost 365 days a year, but the warmed globe now has turned the state — and the beautiful wine country — into a tinder box. Send a little fall weather our way now, please; CA fire season has only just BEGUN. And enjoy the cool over there.

    Hi Neil, After Spring (birthday May!) Autumn takes second place. Both are a delight. The Great music is appreciated, as is Mother Nature’s generous palette of shades…You’re an observant guy, so you may have seen an early sky like the one here this morning (Spain). At 7.20 it was like nothing I’d ever noticed before. Midnight blue – no exaggerating…pristine, with white clouds low on the horizon. Within 20 mins it turned to milky, pale blue. It was stunning.
    LOST IN A TECHNICOLOUR WORLD
    The silence is deafening…
    every careful footfall intrudes.
    Surrounded by a dream world of infinite variety –
    I shiver –
    feel the presence of a talented ghost with a brush;
    look up and see its work: an autumnal labyrinth –
    such beauty to behold,
    A scene to treasure: ochre, scarlet, bronze, topaz and gold.

    Happy Birthday Neil
    Best wishes
    Joy xx

    The autumn colour of your area is one of the very few things which would attract me to visit the USA – obviously, you are another! I admire the fabulous photographs showing the colour of autumn trees which are truly glorious. We don’t get the same summer temperatures here and, consequently, don’t get the same intensity of autumn colour.

    I am more than a little envious of your 23C as you went on your outing. Temperatures here are more generally around 10C at the moment with damp air all the time. Nonetheless, we have managed a few days out which were very enjoyable.

    Do continue to enjoy your season and your upcoming birthday!

    We seem to be ahead of you, autumn-wise, here in the Scottish Lowlands (and the Highlands, last week, for that matter). You still do a great job for your tourist board as ever, Neil!

    I’m afraid I’ve never quite got as excited about Neil Young as many people of good musical taste do, but Eva Cassidy gets me every time. See also her version of ‘Songbird’ (even though I love the Christine McVie original, recorded overnight in a theatre in LA with champagne as the rocket fuel propelling it, the story goes).

I knew the Neil Young song but not the video, which is rather sweet. In one of those Internet down the rabbit hole experiences it led me to a cover of Harvest Moon by Foxes and Fossils, whom I’d never heard of, and I’ve now spent a happy 20 minutes or so listening to their other covers of Beach Boys, Mamas and Papas etc. What beautiful voices.

      Hi there. I can’t remember if I’d seen white pumpkins before. In any case, they are becoming a “thing”.

    My birthday is early October and I’ve always disliked October as the summer has ended. I’ve got a few Eva Cassidy albums in my car but I stopped playing them as each one is so sad I end up arriving at work full of sadness. Sorry Eva . .

      Greetings, Steve. One of these days I’ll listen to more of Eva’s material. I am familiar with very little of her work. Thanks a lot for stopping by. Enjoy the weekend!

    I too usually hate to see summer end, but somehow I’m so enjoying fall. Thank you Neil for such an upbeat post.

    Advanced happy birthday to you! I’ve never experienced autumn but hopefully one day I will. I would love to see those pumpkin decors and of course the yellow and red leaves.
