I'm not a morning person. I am married to someone who is. Everything works out in the end, I guess. I tend to give myself forty minutes to get ready and get to work. (Dealing with snow always sets me back) These are some of the songs that help me get up in the morning.

This great song was slept on. Glad I'm the first to post it. What a great, energetic song without hurting your caveties. This was put on one of the first mixes for my wife. Can't help but smile to this song.

Track 2 from 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1
Length: 00:04:34
Year: 1982
Track Description:
I was a huge Oils fan, and time has taken some edges off of my devotion, but I maintain my love for the music. "When I'm locked in my room / I just want to scream / Now I know what they mean / One more day of eating and sleeping..." and then the guitar and then that Peter Garrett hand waving drive... I still get a chill. Great song. One more day of eating and sleeping, indeed.

Track 1 from BBC3 Re:Covered (Live)
Length: 00:02:43
Year: 0000
Track Description:
This is Elbow covering Black Sabbath live. My wife's computer is by our bathroom and I set up a gettig ready playlist called "Banho" and this is one of my favorite songs I've added to the list. This is a great song for shaking off the cobwebs and playing air harmonica.

Track 4 from Tubeway Army
Length: 00:02:30
Year: 1978
Track Description:
I once woke up in the morning with the guitar riff of this song stuck in my head. It turned out to be a good day. A debt has been owed to this awesome pre-synths Gary Numan song. Feel free to play air guitar, bass or drums along with the song. Just try to sing the words along with Numan too. A fun shower song.

One more from Banho. This is for when I need to get my lounge singer groove on (think Bill Murray, but more synical). Brilliant.

Track 2 from Post
Length: 00:05:21
Year: 1995
Track Description:
"We live on a mountain / Right at the top / There's a beautiful view / From the top of the mountain / Every morning I walk towards the edge / And throw little things off / Like car-parts, bottles and cutlery / Or whatever I find lying around / It's become a habit / A way to start the day / I go through all this / Before you wake up / So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you" I was thinking about this song when I first found read about this contest. Morning rituals are funny, non? I don't know what the history is behind this song, but it's from Bjork, and I guess that tells enough. I really like the innocence and imagery it conveys.

Track 7 from Here Today, Tomorrow, Next Week!
Length: 00:03:44
Year: 1989
Track Description:
This song is for the time I have to encourage Ollie to eat at the breakfast table, while his mom takes a shower and gets herself ready. I find myself searching for new ways to encourage him to keep eating. If you know this song, you know how fun and silly it is. Our morning eating ritual involves pretending to feed spoonfulls of whatever to a ceramic cow, a Dick and Jane calendar and to mom's general direction, followed by Homer Simpson eating sound effects. Good times.

Year: 1998
Track Description:
A new track, to me, and it teaches me to take things easy at work. What a great song. Great up delivery and it makes me happy - ignoring the reality of the lyrics in my life. This is great for the drive to work (all 2 and a half miles of the commute).

Track 1 from Keep Breathing
Length: 00:03:56
Year: 2006
Track Description:
Madness set the perspective, now this song sets the tone for my day. If I could go through every workday with this as my soundtrack, and everything falling into line with its mood, I'd die ulcer-free and smiling. This has a great Massive Attack-like feel, but is more guitar driven, via Vini Reilly. 2007 will involve a lot of The Durutti Column.
