This week’s Music Monday is a little different from my past ones – I’m featuring multiple video games, which is what I will continue to do from here on out. I wanted to do something seasonal, but I wasn’t quite ready for Halloween yet, so I decided to go with music that sounds like fall to me. Some are fall themes in their respective games, some are not, but I think they make for a pretty good fall playlist – great for if you wanna take a drive to check out all the fall foliage.
Fall (Raven’s Descent) – Stardew Valley
I’ll start with one that takes place in fall in good old Stardew Valley. I love fall in Stardew Valley, because you get the full fall package – pumpkins, apples, sunflowers, grapes, and cranberries, plus jack-o-lanterns, fall colors and a Spirit’s Eve celebration.
The Last of Us (A New Dawn) – The Last of Us
The Last of Us has a fantastic soundtrack and this definitely won’t be the only time it’s featured on a Music Monday. In fact, it will probably be featured a lot because I am anxiously awaiting the sequel, and it will be on my mind a lot. This track is just one version of the main theme – and the first minute of it reminds me of a crisp early fall evening in the woods, just before the sun sets.
Autumn at Night – Story of Seasons
Thought I’d change it up a bit and do a nighttime autumn theme. This one’s so calming and relaxing – great for listening to while sitting by the fire, whether it’s a bonfire or a chimney fire, or just some nice fall-scented candles, under some blankets, and with the fall beverage of your choice. Just overload on Fall things and relax.
4pm – Animal Crossing New Leaf
I know this one plays all year round in Animal Crossing, but something about it just reminds me of fall. Like a cool, lazy afternoon kind of fall day.
Tarrey Town – Breath of the Wild
Maybe it’s because it’s located in a region where it’s eternally fall – the leaves are red all the time – but Tarrey Town’s music has great fall vibes.
Thanks for reading and listening. Are there any video game tracks that give you major autumn vibes?
