My Favorite Songs To Wake Up To


Music is a very big part of my life, and I’m almost always listening to it. I find it helps energize me and put me in a good mood. So it is no surprise that I love listening to it in the morning while getting ready. I find certain songs help make me more awake and feel good for the day. So today I thought I’d share some of my favorite songs to wake up to!

Don’t Stop Me Now by Queen

I grew up listening to Queen songs and although I have a few favorites, Don’t Stop Me Now is the best for getting your energy levels up.

Believe by Secret Nation

This is a song I found when watching a YouTube video, and I love the positive message and upbeat tune.

High Hopes by Panic! At The Disco 

Even though this is played a lot on the radio, it’s still a perfect song to start the day to.

Paradise by George Ezra

George Ezra’s whole newest album is amazing, but Paradise is the perfect upbeat song to listen to in the morning.

Deep Into The Wild by Honoraries

If you listen to one song on this list, make it this one! I mentioned in my December round-up that this was my new favorite song, and I still love it so much. The upbeat music just puts me in the best mood and I love the message of this song.

Shotgun by George Ezra

Another great upbeat song from George Ezra’s album is Shotgun! The lyrics are very unique and it would be perfect for a summer road trip too.

Take Me Home by Cash Cash feat. Bebe Rexha

I started listening to this song in high school, and it is still a favorite of mine to listen to in the mornings.

I Wanna Dance With Somebody by Whitney Houston 

A classic song that just never gets old.

Malibu by Miley Cyrus

This song always reminds me of long car rides on my summer trips, and I love the calm vibe of it. Although a warning: It will make you want to take a trip to the beach!

Run Away With Me by Carly Rae Jepsen

The perfect 80’s pop sound to get ready to. The album this song comes from is one of my favorites, so I suggest listening to a few of those songs too.

And those are some of my favorite songs to listen to in the morning! I’d love to know if you have any favorite songs that put you in a good mood!

    Your tote bag is so fun! 🙂 I tend not to have music on at home but if I’m commuting to work or we are driving somewhere, there’s always music on! I agree a good song can really be a mood booster for the day!

    Hope that you are having a good week 🙂 We finally got a break in the heatwave last night and it was so welcome!
