Wake up easier: Songs that'll get you energised in the morning

Alarams-switch-on Some days it’s an absolute mission to get out of bed, even with the promise of a coffee and a hot breakfast (yes, we're talking to you, Monday). Thankfully the guys at Spotify have come up with a perfect Wake Up Playlist with the promise of tunes that’ll not only help you to wake up easier, they'll have you jumping out of bed feeling refreshed and energised. Spotify teamed up with an American music psychologist, David M. Greenberg, to create the playlist and songs were chosen because they all used three key musical ingredients proven to help wake people up in the morning: Music that builds: No one wants to wake up with a bang, it’s better to have music that gradually builds up. This will help you to wake up more gently. Positivity: We can all admit to being a little moody when we wake up sometimes so adding some positive lyrics to our morning can help us wake up on the right side of the bed. Strong beat: A song that has a fast beat and uses bass and drums will get you up and moving and ready for the day. The playlist is filled with the latest hits from the radio as well as some good ol’ classics from back in the day. Check it out below:
