description:
On most occasions I loathe mornings because I hate being woken up early by some irritating rhythmic beating on my ear drums. Not to mention having to walk around in a groggy state, I feel like I loose a lot of living when I start my day like that. Having to rush through my thoughts and not being able to rest and take a second to just breath.

But that's not what this mix is about, in fact, it is quite the contrary. This mix is about those rare days where I get to sleep in and wake up naturally. Lay in bed with my eyes half open and not have to worry about where I gotta be and what I gotta do. And hopefully one day I shall have one of those exact mornings but when I roll onto my side and open my I will see my hand resting on the chest of another. In that perfect morning, under those cool sheets and resting upon those soft pillows, the sun fails to seem so bright [by comparison].

Track 5 from The Creek That Drank The Cradle
Length: 00:03:24
Year: 2002
Track Description:
I thought this would be an appropriate way to start off the mix. The feeling of being woken up by nature instead of by a mechanical menace.

The song itself is kind of eerie, but it gives me the feeling of everything I see being vague and uncertain when I first wake up.

Track 4 from I Am the Messiah
Length: 00:03:39
Year: 2003
Track Description:
This song is so so so funny! If you have never listened to MC Honky, please just listen to this one track. But the thing about it is if you were not listening to the lyrics this would actually be a very relaxing song. From the man's speaking voice to the low key orchestra in the background, it is rather soothing.

It makes me feel really good about myself in a really humorous way, and that is how I wanna feel every morning, joy creeping around in the pit of my stomach.

Track 9 from Vespertine
Length: 00:02:40
Year: 2001
Track Description:
This music makes me picture myself opening my eyes and yawning and the sun guiding itself to my face where it plays gently with my features. But not harshly enough that I have to squint beyond the already tired state they are in. Very very soothing, and something I would rather like to wake up to.

Also making me picture light sheets contouring along the curves of a body.

Track 2 from Four Songs - EP
Length: 00:06:19
Year: 2002
Track Description:
Going along more with the imagery of the sun. Maybe not the sun itself but all the little details that are carved in the sky around it. The colors that I would like to reflect onto my white sheets in the perfect morning. Still feeling the power of the words that were said at some point in my life. A good song for early morning in bed reflections. Nice and low key. Mmmm.

Track 29 from Sinatra 80th: All the Best
Length: 00:02:59
Year: 1995
Track Description:
I really just love Sinatra and it has never really been appropriate for me to put him in any of my other mixes so I thought maybe I could slip him in here and get away with it.

I love hearing Sinatra's voice in the morning, he is one of the few artists that doesn't irritate me when I have just awakened. When I sleep in I often lay in bed for an hour or so more before actually getting out of bed, and in that time I just review my life and quite often I find my thoughts drifting off. Ending up on the same subject every time, you. The morning is when I have the most time to actually think about how much I miss you, and I hoping that some day, when I wake up in the morning, there won't be a reason for me to miss you. Because you will be right beside me.

Track 1 from The Acoustic EP
Length: 00:04:15
Year: 2005
Track Description:
This is the only song I have by them but I like it a lot. I sing it really loud when nobody is home. It may or may not be a shitty song, but sometimes you just get those tracks that you can't help but sing along with, no matter what kind of condition they might be in.

Turning my head slowly, trying not to disturb you. And I smile gently as I see your slumbering face. In my mind I know that you will still be there tomorrow when I wake again.

Just knowing that we are finally where we have always wanted to be, with the sun on our faces and our shoulders hidden in blankets, this entire city seemed to go quiet, leaving only you and I to soak in this early morning perfection.

I have a lot of profound thoughts, lying there in that daze and I come to a conclusion that I cannot control what the universe has in store for me, and I am just going to take it the best I can. Hopefully you will be by my side, to help me through those hard times, and share with me the good ones, and ponder with me in this hovering daybreak.

We fall back down on to the bed from rockin' so hard. We talk with our eyes closed. A short talkative nap is certainly required after that exhausting encounter with the breakfast brain bash session. And the morning is still clinging to our bodies.

I like your description. I can imagine just the morning. Unfortunately i wake up at 12pm everyday so i have forgotten how good and special sleeping in and lying in bed is. But your mix has brought me back to the magical mornings i once had.
