Over the weekend, it occurred to me to switch my alarm clock tune to a song. Okay, I’ve got to admit, it’s not the sort of thing you want to think about on a weekend. But when you’re freelancing, the days get blurred sometimes.
So, anyway, once in a while, I hear music in my dream and actually wake up because of that. But, it isn’t the most reliable method, no?
I’ve been using Strum as the wake-up song on the iPhone for a few years. I like it, but why not get something I really like? Since it’s a song now, and not a not generic tune, I demand more from it. It’s got to put me in a good mood and maybe get me feeling a little inspired. While going through my iTunes library, I revisited these favourites. Not only do I like them for the first ten seconds of the songs, but also for the entirety.
Gotta love Ray LaMontagne’s vocals and the soulful sound.
Sung by the quiet Beatle, this song’s more relaxing vibe is a nice one for a less busy day.
This song comes from one of my favourite albums from Mraz. If the first minute doesn’t work, the gospel bit, the horns or the trombone solo would get you up and going. The song is just filled with positivity, it’ll clear the clouds in no time.
