My Top 5 Morning Motivation Songs

Outside of checking the dresser to find out you’re out of boxers, there’s nothing more difficult in the morning than hearing the alarm clock go off. Such a belief leads me to my next statement. If sleep is indeed the cousin of death, waking up before you’re ready is its sister. That’s why certain vices are needed to put the wheels in motion and get the day started on the good foot. Smoking a blunt isn’t smart if your place of employment does random drug tests. Drinking before class/work isn’t exactly the world’s greatest idea either.

Music, however, is the world’s language and the right song can cast a spell over your mind that can carry throughout the day. The work day becomes shorter, final exams become easier and life becomes just a tad easier to handle with thanks to the right song. On the following pages, I’ve included five that help get me motivated most mornings when I’d rather be passed out sleep. Feel free to leave your choices in the comments and, as always, don’t get your panties in a bunch because your favorite song wasn’t included. This isn’t a top five; instead, it’s five in general. Breathe easy.
