Good Morning (7 Days, 7 Songs Series)


Hi There

On Every Sunday, I'll Publish (Hoping I'll make it happen for a while...), A set of 7 songs, each for a day, All songs will be connected to each other by one issue which they give it different perspective. So Here It Goes, This week issue is Morning (last Week, The Mixtape was about Home)

Sunday: The Velvet Underground - Sunday Morning

When Lou Reed sings "Sunday morning, praise the dawning, It's just a restless feeling by my side" on Sunday Morning (Youtube, Lyrics) from their fabulous album Velvet Underground & Nico (1967), I cannot believe that it was written about 40 years ago and still relevant these days.

Monday: Rialto - Monday Morning 5.19

Haven't heard about Rialto for a while. Since their hit Monday morning 5.19 (YoutubeLyrics) from the debut album Rialto (1998), they fail to repeat this achivement and broke up a few years later, leaving this song behind them, and what a beautiful one it is...


Tuesday: Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions - Butterfly Mornings


Butterfly mornings (YoutubeLyrics) is one of my favourites of Hope Sandoaval & The Warm Inventions' second album Through the Devil Softly (2009) which continues the silent ballads of their debut album Bavarian Fruit Bread (2001). 


Wednesday: Nick Drake - From The Morning

Nick Drake is an under-rated Folk singer-songwrtier which died tragicaly while he was 26 years old. From the morning (YoutubeLyrics) is a ray of light from his sad short life, that lighten his album Pink Moon (1972). The last song from his last album, so optimistic but so sad...

Thursday: Ingrid Michaelson - Morning Lullabies


Ingrid Michaelson is a Jewisn American-Born singer from New York, Which many of her songs appears on TV show such as Grey's Anatomy. Here, I chose her Morning Lullabies (YoutubeLyrics) from her Debut Album, Slow the Rain (2005). Simple and Melodious, prefectly fits for a beautiful morning.

Friday: Collective Soul - Good Morning After All


Collective Soul bringing some Rock tunes to all the previous silent morning songs. Good Morning After All (YoutubeLyrics) is taken from their seventh studio album Afterwords (2007) and gives me a kick while I'm refusing to wake up early. 

Saturday: Jewel - Morning Song

Jewel, The Amercian Country-Folk singer-Songwrtier brings us a Morning Song (YoutubeLyrics) from her wonderful debut album Pieces of You (1995). Not as famous as "Foolish Games" from the same album but not bad at all for a bright saturday morning

Enjoy This mixtape, Have a nice week...
