We here at MWA firmly believe that Autumn in the Midwest has its own unique soundtrack. That’s why I have decided to present a different song everyday for the next few months that has that Midwestern “Fall Sound” we all love and embrace.

“Leave All The Pretty Things Alone” by Hotter Than June

“I’ll give you a taste of what you want
so grab your jacket
that’s all I’m askin’
now I’m ready to go.”

When the cold sets in, I find myself thinking about Hotter Than June. Maybe it’s the chilly nights I spent hanging in-between sets outside with bandmates in places like the Canopy Club in Champaign/Urbana, Illinois. There is something to the tone and reflection of times past that give this song a distinct Fall Sound.
