[life] A Morning Playlist

You guys.

I think I finally did it. I think I created the greatest playlist of all time.

I am known (by Nate) to be a notorious "song changer". I'm really big into singing along to songs (not to say that I have a fabulous voice, I just like knowing the words), so if a)I don't know the words, or b)it doesn't have a good beat/rhythm, I'm going to change the song.

Nate always tells me that if I gave a song a chance, I would learn the words. Nope, nu-uh. If it doesn't "grab" me in its intro, it's more than likely to be a terrible song.

So, I give you...

Do you use Spotify? If so, you can get this playlist EASY PEASY! Just search "Up and At 'Em" with a cute little sunshine and you should find it :) I call it that because I am NOT a morning person, so thanks to Gabby (British YouTuber), she has said that turning on music immediately has helped her become a morning person. So I'm giving it a try!

The playlist has a good combination of pop, rock, some country, a few slow jams, some 80s songs, lots of Beatles and Michael Jackson, Elton, and Stevie (Wonder, that is). Don't worry... I am a big fan of T-Swift, but I have all her albums on my iPhone... So I just listen to those all at once! Also, I am a Texan and a fan of Texas Country, but I just don't like country music that much! #craptexan. And I'm sure there are a bajillion other songs that could be added to the list. This is just a start!

Here's a list of the songs... All 52 of them, in alphabetical order (I must love you guys!) Songs with a *** are MUST LISTENS.

  1. Such a fun playlist! I'd love to add it to my Spotify, but I can't seem to find it. Maybe you need to make it public? I've never made a public playlist, so I'm not sure how to do it, but figured I'd ask in case that's something you'd need to do to share it!

  2. A lot of these are new to me! I'm going to find your list on Spotify! So fun. Thanks for sharing. Happy Friday!!!!

  3. This is a great playlist! Beyonce is always a must-have on mine. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Love this playlist. will check it out for sure. Goodbye Brick Road and Benny and the Jets... classics!

  5. Great list! I will have to look up some of the ones I am unfamiliar with, I'm always looking for cool new songs to listen to. In a totally music person, so have too many to add to the list, but anything Ed Sheeran is good in my books. Thanks for sharing!

  6. These are such a great list of songs! I love Fix You by coldplay and anything from Michael Jackson!


I read each and every comment: thank you for leaving some love!
