13 Glorious Tunes To Wake You Up In The Morning #SnoozeMode
5 more minutes please! Here's a list of songs perfect to use as your morning alarm. Upbeat or mellow, we've got them all.
Struggle to wake up in the morning sometimes? Pressing that snooze button one too many times? Well we think it is about time you invest in some songs to help push you out of the bed and get you ready for the day ahead.
Saying that, not ALL of these songs are upbeat, we've included some lazy weekend tunes too.
1. Coldplay - 'Viva La Vida'
Who knew that a song with the ability to win the song of the year Grammy award is also a perfect to kickstart any weekday morning. The song was taken from Coldplay's 2008 album 'Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends'.
2. Katrina & The Waves - 'Walking On Sunshine'
It is a classic that'll pep anybody up for a great day. Watching the video though...its hard not to laugh at that fact that here in the UK we call that sunshine...*sigh*
3. The Vamps - 'Wake Up'
Wake up! Your sleeeeeping heeeaaart! We can't get enough of The Vamps 2015 hit from an album of the same name. If this doesn't wake you from your sleep wanting to attack the day then we're not sure what will.
4. Pharrell Williams - 'Happy'
We can't have a list without a Vodafone Big Top 40 No.1 single now can we? Pharrell's 'Happy' could be on millions of lists couldn't it? 'Happiest songs ever', 'most uplifting tunes'...the possibilities really are endless with this one.
5. James Vincent McMorrow - 'Higher Love'
See? We told you not all of he songs would be 'get up and go' tracks. This is a perfect choice for a lazy Sunday. James' cover of Steve Winwood's 'Higher Love' gave the song a whole different tone and a new breath of life.
6. Sam Smith - 'Money On My Mind'
'Stay With Me', 'Lay Me Down' and 'I'm Not The Only One' are masterpieces, there is no doubt about that. But Sam's fast paced 'Money On My Mind' is EXACTLY what you need when you finger keeps moving towards that snooze button.
7. Avicii - 'Wake Me Up'
Nothing like starting off the morning with some dance music right? Hmm, we'll let you decide that one, just note, nobody appreciates you raving at the breakfast table.
8. Bill Withers - 'Lovely Day'
The amazing thing about Bill Withers' 'Lovely Day' is not only that it makes you get out of bed, it also plasters the biggest smile in the history of existence across your face.
9. Kanye West - 'Good Morning'
Kanye's 2007 album 'Graduation' is constantly hailed as his best album EVER and to be honest, we can't really argue. The song opens with this euphoric masterpiece and so should your Thursday mornings.
10. James Brown - 'Get Up Offa That Thing'
James Brown's legendary scream probably isn't the most comforting first noise of the day but you won't be able to rest your eyes for a second after JB gets going,
11. The Cat Empire - 'Wolves'
Australian funk/ska band The Cat Empire are able to create a wave of movement at their live shows and it shouldn't be any different when trying to get you on your feet.
12. WHAM! - 'Wake Me Up Before You Go Go'
Just because it is an oldie doesn't mean it isn't a goodie. Classics are always welcome here on the Vodafone Big Top 40.
13. The Weeknd - 'The Morning'
Before The Weeknd's HUGE album 'Beauty Behind The Madness', there was 'Trilogy'. 'The Morning' gives you that slow wake up you need after a big night out (plus any list is always made 100% cooler when The Weeknd is added to it right?).
