none of this sad bastard music

I woke up this morning with that line in my head, thinking I’m going to need some specific tunes to get me through this Monday. With a quick perusal through my music library I realise I have too many melancholy tunes that just don’t fit for a  start of the week pick up.

Must change this.

Favourite tune to blast in the morning?

  1. This was exactly my predicament this morning… My solution- Pleased to Meet Me by the Replacements.

    Ordinarily my late August go to record it fit in perfectly with the need for something a little faster blended with some slower to accompany the rapidly evolving fall colours whilst driving.

    Young bastard music I suppose… ;)

    Ha! Young bastard…nice.

    Good solution. I went with The Smiths but your comment as moved me onto the Replacements now. So thank-you!

    You need that mix whilst driving. I’m always making fresh playlists for the car. I want to listen to Stars when the weather changes, however must listen to their upbeat tunes as to not slip into a funk. It’s the Sufjan Stevens equation. ;)

  3. Back to the sad music for a second, specifically tunes that make grown (British) men cry…I found this link amusing:

    It depends on the morning really. Maybe it’s because I recently re-watched DIG! but I find myself listening to the Dandy Warhols in the morning (it’s hard to listen to them and not get happy) and the BJM at night.

  5. True. I’m sure re-watching the film has something to do with current musical listening. Our indie radio station plays a lot of the Dandy Warhols, not just Bohemian Like You, so that’s always welcome. Can’t say I’ve ever listened to BJM. Probably should, but haven’t…yet.

    If you haven’t seen DIG! you should definitely check it out, an amazing study of megalomania. You should grab “Thank God For Mental Illness” if you’re looking for a starting point with BJM.

  7. Perhaps I will after I watch Under Great White Northern Lights. Hopefully that will make the end to this day better. Shall have to put that in the que then, thanks!

  8. I usually start the morning with more low-key listening, sipping coffee with CBC.

    But later, JAMC is always good for a lift, or the Cons.

  9. I think listening to the CBC that early would put me back to sleep. This is because I don’t drink the coffee to counter balance. ;)

    Need to break out the Cons, good idea!
