September “Fresh Start” Playlist + Weekly Wrap-Up

Fresh Start Playlist from designsponge on 8tracks Radio.

From today’s radio show about re-organizing and simplifying your life to special round-ups of brilliant organizing ideas, we’ve been talking about fresh starts a lot here at Design*Sponge. Although January might seem the most apt time to discuss personal goals and ideas for rebooting your routine, we’ve find that the  365 year actually has two “new years” and January 1st is but one of them. September, no matter what age you are, often comes with a back-to-school connotation—an informal end to summer and a return to your daily work routine. As such, it’s the perfect time to get re-energized, re-organized, and re-inspired. This playlist, with songs from artists as far-ranging as The Ramones and Chuck Berry, will help you get yourself back into the “Fresh Start” mindset this fall. Check out the full track listing plus Rdio links after the jump! Happy weekend, everybody! —Max

Jewish New Year is this week and always falls in Sept-Oct.

Because of our association with this time as going back to school, we all feel like this is a (second?) chance at a new start!

The September by Earth, Wind & Fire is one of my most favorite songs. I thing is was from the late 80’s or 90’s.
