Music Monday β€” What are you listening to? (Sunrise Edition πŸŒ…)

cover image source: Giphy

This edition came to me this morning as I turned on my radio (aka asked Google to play something from YouTube) while I made my daily coffee and did the dishes from the night before β€” I know, I know... I'm a filthy beast. πŸ‘Ήβ˜•οΈ Anyway, I was thinking there are some tunes that I gravitate to earlier in the morning and others that I'm drawn to later on in the day. So, for the next couple o' weeks we're gonna open up the genre boundaries to anything and everything, focusing instead on the time of day. With that intro outta the way, what songs, artists, albums, and genres do you like to accompany you in the morning? πŸŒ…

An animated sun rises over the hills. The sunrays are rotating around the sphere and as it rises the sky changes color from a deep blue/purple to a vibrant mix of orange and red


How we do

In this weekly series, folks can chime in and drop links to whatever it is they've been listening to recently + browse others' suggestions. You can follow the suggested genre if you'd like, but don't feel confined to it; you're free to suggest whatever you wanna. πŸ™Œ

If you're interested in having other discussions about music, consider following the aptly named #music discussions organization.


Rise and shine, folks! Let's hear some morning music. Note: you can embed a link to your song using the following syntax {% embed https://... %}. This should work for most common platforms!

Looking forward to listening to y'all's suggestions! 🎢

Thanks @michaeltharrington for helping me find good old-fashioned vibes (with the Spotify radio system). Some musics I like to get motivation when your journey just started :



Happy weeek in music πŸ•ΊπŸΌπŸ’ƒπŸΌ

For some reason, I keep seeing the error upstream request timeout when trying to view your suggestions. That said, after jiggling things around a bit and I can see one suggestion, "Let's Spend The Night Together" by The Rolling Stones... classic!

Haha, someone had to do it. 😁

But seriously, hard to beat the beauty of "It's A Beautiful Morning" β€” it feels like the sun is rising up, birds are singing, and the weather is good. The Rascals really nailed it with this one.

But even more so, I absolutely love the vibe of "Groovin'"... I know the lyrics say "on a Sunday afternoon" but I regularly pop this one in the AM. I've never heard a harmonica sound quite so mellow... listen for it in this tune.

If I listen to anything at all in the morning, it's NPR or MPR (Minnesota Public Radio). But today, I'm listening to Dessa's new album, Bury the Lede.

Right on, Jenna! NPR is a staple in my household as well. Great thing to listen to in the AM. β˜•οΈ

By the way, you ever check out NPR's Tiny Desk Concert?

Since you mentioned Dessaed (I'm listening to "Hurricane Party" now and this is awesome πŸ™Œ) here's a performance you might enjoy!

Ooooo yes, Dendi!

This is some great morning music. Lovin' that bassline, btw.

Speaking of Parcels, my only real experience listening to them thus far is from this performance they did with AnnenMayKantereit:

I really love this performance. Parcels is freaking awesome and AnnenMayKantereit is too β€” gotta love the husky, gravelly, soulful voice of AnnenMayKantereit.

I've heard this too, this 'cant get you out of my head' cover is so fun to listen with their own electric and disco music.

Maybe you'll fully reach parcels music as I do someday. I will slowly put their good ones in this series with the matching topics :D
