Playlist: Spices Other Than Pumpkin

By Linnea Feldman Emison ’18 and Maggie Dalrymple ’18

Fall can be an overwhelming time. If the barrage of pumpkin-themed consumerism is getting you down, these songs are for you. I hope you will have fun and learn a lot. I know I did. Specifically, I learned that songs with the word “cumin” in them are generally not about the seasoning.  However, here are some songs that are about spices.

  1. “Shoop” by Salt-n-Pepper

2. “I Should Live In Salt” by The National

3. “Suga Mama” by Fifth Harmony

4. “Brown Sugar” by The Rolling Stones

5. “Cinnamon” by Marika Hackman off the EP Sugar Blind

6. “They’re Red Hot” by The Red Hot Chili Peppers

7. “Thyme” by Deer Tick

8. “Nutmeg” by Art Pepper off the album Cinnamon

9. “Gimmie Some Salt” by Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

10. “Scarborough Fair / Canticle” by Simon and Garfunkel off the album Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Thyme

11. “Spice Up Your Life” by The Spice Girls
