Saturday, September 22nd marks the first day of fall 2012: are you ready to jump in piles of leaves, drink hot cocoa and bundle up in sweaters and scarves? Whether you're excited to slip on your fall booties or disappointed to retire your bikini, we have to face it: autumn is just around the corner. Therefore, this edition of Playlistin' contains five songs that name-drop the fall season, so snuggle under a big blanket, watch the leaves fall from the trees, and plug in:

5. Rascal Flatts — Why

"Now the oak trees are swayin' in the early autumn breeze / The golden sun is shining on my face / The tangled thoughts I hear a mockingbird sing / This old world really ain't that bad a place"

4. Jojo — Forever In My Life

"The way you're part of me / I would have to re-learn everything / If you were to leave / So fast you make me fall like I was autumn leaves"

3. Kanye West — Gorgeous

"Penitentiary chances, the devil dances / And eventually answers to the call of autumn / All them fallin' for the love of ballin' / Get caught with 30 rocks, the cop looked like Alec Baldwin"

2. Ke$ha — Boom Boom Bang

"Trees and autumn leaves, kneelin' right before the sun / And when the night and moon indeed another days begun"

1. Ed Sheeran — Autumn Leaves

"Do you ever wonder if stars shine out for you? / Float down / Like autumn leaves"
