For some reason I keep waking up at the crack of dawn everyday and can never fall back asleep but I ain’t mad at yah, sleep is the cousin of death. This little dilema has made me put serious thought into the ultimate morning playlist, an eclectic mix of internal themes and flavors, a time traveling back to the future experience, one that motivates yet still keeps the relaxed nature of the AM in the back of the mind. With these prerequisites at hand I went out searching in the volt and found the Seams Remix of Alan Pownall’s Colourful Day, probably one of the best feeling contemporary morning songs I’ve found in a long time.
London producer Seams is a master at painting with samples and this production is a perfect example of that. Subtle yet colorful this track makes you think of the true significance and beauty of waking up in the morning. It’s unfortunate that for many of us the gift of waking up another day has been clouded with the idea of having to go to a job we may not like or anything of that nature. But like everything it’s all a matter of perspective regardless of what you have to do this day it’s just another day closer to your goals and aspirations.
It’s all in my mind now,
But I can’t help thinking why it’s oh so quiet.
When I woke up it was like this,
What a colourful day I have been welcomed with.”
This morning playlist thing is starting to become a big project, not sure if I’ll ever post it since it’s pretty personal but I’ll throw up a song or two here and there. Good day my friends, enjoy.
