I despise mornings. Now that I'm not a lazy college kid, I actually have to get up at a reasonable hour and go somewhere to (hopefully) be productive. It's especially hard for me because sleep is like a glorious love affair with my bed and every morning, without fail, she attempts to seduce me to get back inside. A good soundtrack is my sleep-salt-peter.

Track 01 - 07: wake up.
Track 08 - 09: shower time.
Track 10 - 16: drive.

I know it's not the most cohesive mix, but it's got a lot of personal highlights from lesser mixes.

Track 12 from The Avalanche: Outtakes & Extras
Length: 00:06:07
Year: 2006
Track Description:
I've been waking up to this song's opening 'twinkle' for nearly two months. I know this song gets a lot of play, but this version is wonderful. It makes a dreary 5:30am winter morning a little easier to bare, for lack of better words.

Track 10 from Talkie Walkie
Length: 00:04:47
Year: 2004
Track Description:
This song was my wakeup mix for the terrible Corvallis winters when I lived in a drafty house with no carpet and very little heat. I don't use it much any more, since I still get muscle-memory cringes that remind me of the bitter cold.

I only use this song to wake up when I know for a fact that it is going to be an awesome day. It makes me feel like I'm living the opening scene of a fun, romantic comedy. Is that lame?

Track 11 from Fly or Die
Length: 00:04:05
Year: 2004
Track Description:
I'll just get this out up front: this might just be the worst big-budget album ever recorded for a major label. Pharrell proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that he can't write a good song to save his life.

"slow motion like a dream, but real time is what it seems..."

But, nonetheless, I'm ridiculously nostalgic and this song reminds me of working a shit job and having a damn good time.

The Riot Badge II is chemically designed and pH balanced for those who are helping fuel the flames of this mixtape fire by recruiting large quantities of new members. Truly, one of the highest honors among the MTC ranks.

You really only take 2 songs to shower? You should probably move 'morning glory' into your shower mix, cuz that can be dangerous while you're driving.
