Harvest Songs

The Y! Music Playlist Blog

Harvests happen at different times of the year depending on the crop and where it's grown in the world. And back before we had the ability to ship anything from anywhere overnight, harvest time was a critical and celebratory time of year. The hard work was over and if you had a good crop there was certainly a lot to celebrate. Where I grew up, in the North Eastern part of the United States, harvest time happens in autumn, so I will always associate the harvest with cooler weather and changing leaves. But the word "harvest" has come to mean a reaping, or collecting of more than crops - one can harvest love, money, or any reward that comes from hard work. As autumn arrives I wanted to put together a playlist of "harvest songs". This one includes 15 tracks that contain the word "harvest" in the song title and it begins and ends with Neil Young. What have I missed?
