25 songs to start your morning off right

Printed with permission from C. Mahabir

How many times have you told yourself the night before class that you’re definitely going to wake up the moment your alarm goes off only to hit the snooze button three times in a row? As much as we’d enjoy residing in our safe haven of warm blankets and pillows rather than crawling out of bed and getting up and out for the day, there’s always one thing that can assure the morning goes just a little bit more smoothly: a good playlist.

Whether your roommate’s taking way too long in the shower, your morning commute fails to exceed five miles per hour or you just can’t seem to get across campus in time, you may find yourself tapping or mouthing along to a song that’s either blasting from your speakers or your headphones. It’s only natural that you have the perfect playlist of morning jams that’ll get you moving in no time.

The following playlist caters to a wide variety of tastes and styles, from dancehall to pure pop and hip-hop. Even though this might not be the playlist you keep near and dear on an early morning rise, there’s definitely a song or two you might just consider adding to your own mix.
