The 8 Best Songs to Start your Day
Start your morning off with a few refreshing songs to really set the right mood for the day. These songs and more are all in my Spotify playlist “Pre Coffee” so you can easily have these songs at hand in the AM. I play these songs right when I wake up, as I’m having breakfast, getting ready and throughout the day. I highly recommend you give them a try, I promise you you will love them.
“Electric Feel” - MGMT (Cover by Henry Green)
This song cover has been a favourite of mine for the longest time. Unlike most songs, I didn’t get sick of it after listening to it on repeat….and I’m not kidding when I say I listened, and still listen to it on REPEAT. I’ve played this as a kickstart to my morning for the past two years and it has never failed to put me in the right headspace to start my day. Henry Green’s Electric feel (MGMT) cover is all good vibes. Beaches, sunrises and good feels.
“Baby Please” - Black Pool
“Baby Please”, quite a popular song amongst my friends and many others. I found this song around the same time as I found Henry Green’s cover of “Electric Feel”. It is a slow-paced, mellow song which fills my body with joy. This song sets the pace for my morning, reminding me to take a breath and start my day the way I want it to continue. An absolute morning must!
“Sun Dress” - Black pool
As you can tell, I am a big fan of Black Pool’s music but “Sun Dress” is something else. Similarly to “Baby Please”, it’s very slow-paced and that’s perfect for rising with the sun.
“Signals” - Junius Meyvant
Junius Meyvant has blessed the world with his magical music and angel-like voice. Honestly. This song is one of the “happier” songs in the list. “Happier” meaning “more upbeat”. At least compared to Black Pool’s songs. This song will definitely lift your mood in a second as the music and his singing is very lighthearted and feathery. If that makes any sense at all… listen to the song and you’ll understand. Again, a must for a pre-coffee buzz.
“I’m Yours” (Casa Nova Sessions) - Jason Mraz
I am almost certain everyone has listened to Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours” as it is such a mood lifter (if you haven’t, stop reading and go listen!). The “Casa Nova Sessions I’m Yours” is honestly just as amazing as the original but a COMPLETELY different feel. It is an acoustic version of the original song and has a more “raw” and “rustic” feel to it. This song makes me so happy and has done so for many, many years.
“In the Midst of it All” - Tom Misch & Sam Wills
Let me tell you, If nothing seems to be lifting your mood after a stressful day, “In the Midst of it All” will. If this song has the capabilities of lifting you up after a bad day, why not prevent the bad day if all by listening to this at the very start of your morning. The song has a slow, calming start but slowly builds into something AMAZING. It will get you grooving around your room and in a great mood. Trust me.
“Catch & Release” (Deepened Remix) - Max Simmons, Falco Van Den Aker and Bob Van Ratingen
I have no words. I am listening to this song as I’m writing this and I’m losing my train of thought… I CAN’T HELP SINGING ALONG!
“Banana Pancakes” - Jack Johnson’s
My dad introduced me to Jack Johnson’s music and I couldn’t thank him enough. The lyrics itself are just amazing.
“Cause I love to lay here lazy
We could close the curtains
Pretend like there's no world outside”
It is just so cute. Above all, Johnson is playing the song on an acoustic guitar, which I find so calming. It has a ‘rustic’ touch to it which makes me feel as if I’ve just woken up on a beach. I love beaches so this definitely sets my morning up perfectly.
I really hope these songs have the same effect on you as they do on me.
