Favourite Four: Alternative Songs to Brighten any Morning

It’s starting to look a lot like winter. You know what that means? We all have to try just that little bit harder to stay positive. Because when you’re waking up to find your bed socks have fallen into that desolate spot under your bed you just can’t reach, your favourite boots are covered in cobwebs (this could be a positive), all this while it seems the sun hasn’t even risen yet you might just need a little extra of a pick-me-up to get the day started.

I just can’t get over how ugly the Spiderbait cover is.
Cool by Pylon (Post-Punk – New Wave) | Friday I’m in Love by The Cure (Post-Punk)
Calypso by Spiderbait (Alt Rock – Pop-Punk) – Today by the Smashing Pumpkins (Alt Rock)

Don’t fear, I’m not going to tell you to switch to pop music in the
darker days of the year because alternative rock can be just as
inspiring! You can find a great morning song from even the most
anarchist of genres. Here are my current morning loves.

Speaking of anarchist morning songs, do you ahve one you’d like to suggest? What do you listen to? I’m in desperate need for some new happy Punk, happy post-punk, happy New Wave songs to spam listen to. This sounds impossible but you can only listen to The Cure and silly eighties songs so many times per year!

    It's not even close to winter here, as we are approaching summer with all its hideous heat and sunshine… πŸ™ However, I find that almost anything by Voltaire is GREAT for those days when I actually feel darker than goth. And I agree with you, "Friday I'm In Love" is awesome… I listen to it almost every Friday morning, just to get me going for the weekend! πŸ™‚

    "First of all" by Japanther brightens every one of my mornings. A cheerful "First of all, fuck you all" is just what I need to hear.

    "I was really suicidal. I just thought it was funny to write a song that said today is the greatest day of your life because it can’t get any worse." – Billy Corgan. Probably explains why the song is so upbeat, just a tidbit I learned about not too long ago.
