It's the end of Summer already. Time for back to school, leaves changing color, and Halloween decorations posted on storefronts way too soon: Ghosts in the windows. In some stores, Christmas lights are already being sold. Fall is the best time of the year. The weather gets crisp, and the Northeast starts to get some character to its foliage. It's time for a Fall season songs list from Top2040, the best songs for Autumn and Fall:

1 - Forever Autumn by the Moody Blues - Justin Hayward, written by Jeff Wayne and used in the musical War of the Worlds soundtrack. The song even sounds like Fall.
