This Monday marks the first of October, and we are embracing one of our favorite months with open arms. Playing in fallen leaves, cookie-baking, and Halloween festivities await! On that topic, did you know that there are quite a few songs out there that name-drop the famous fall month? From Kenny Chesney's high school memories to Drake's reference to his October's Very Own crew, we're counting down our fave five songs on this edition of Playlistin' that are ripe for the picking this October...

5. Kate Voegele — The Devil In Me

"Thinking it over / Those were days dark as ebony night / The end of October seemed like a lifetime"

4. Kenny Chesney — For The First Time

"That late October at the homecoming dance / We slipped outside and we took a chance / In the middle of the night it sure felt right"

3. Kelis — Get Along With You

"Dear diary / I remember like it was yesterday / It was October 30th / I no longer have any need for these worldly things"

2. Drake — Fireworks

"Yeah, this life is something I would die for / October's own but it's lookin' like July 4th / But I just wish they'd let you try it first / This time I'm really goin' off, fireworks"

1. U2 — October

"October / And the trees are stripped bare / Of all they wear / What do I care"
