Wasn’t summer fun? You lived. You loved. You lost. You learned. You were so busy being fancy, in fact, that you let your home go to pot. Luckily, September is here, and that means fall cleaning — your chance to reboot the mission and restore some order to your life. Sweeping, scrubbing, and mopping might seem like daunting tasks, but once you get going, you’ll be amazed by how great you feel. All you need is that initial push — which is where music comes in. What follows is a terrific 20-song playlist for this autumn’s adventures in housekeeping. Forget whistling while you work — sing along loud enough to hear yourself over the vacuum.
