wakey wakey wednesday // 01.04.2012

wakey wakey, eggs and bakey. name that movie.

i am so not a morning person. i set my alarm up to an hour earlier than i have to be awake just to snooze slide into the day (snooze slide. yeah, i just made that up). but once i'm up, i'm up and when i'm up, music is on.

my itunes is (almost) always set to shuffle and i'm always a bit excited to see what the first song of the day will be. sometimes it's a great first song that sets the mood for the whole day. sometimes it's a real stinker and i wonder why that song (or album or artist) is even in my library.

i thought it would be fun (and sometimes very funny) to share the first song of the morning once a week. thus, wakey wakey wednesday.

i pledge to be brutally honest even if the song is trash and i lose a bit of music credibility in the process. who knows, maybe you'll find a new artist to love!

song: hold me now
artist: polyphonic spree
album: together we're heavy
year: 2004

good morning!


  1. This should be fun! I always wake up to NPR news which leaves me saying, "What the Hell is wrong with our world?" at least half of the time. Maybe music is a better way to go.

  2. Just stumbled upon your blog! Love the reads.

  3. I'm sure your music cred is secure! However if Biebs comes up, well, I'm not sure then :P

  4. Haha! No Biebs, I can assure you of that. There is some pretty bad stuff, though. So bad it's really good.

  5. I wake up to the same song by the smiths every morning and have for at least 10 years (somehow I still love the song!) I like your idea better. Time for a new alarm clock....
