Waking up to the beat

You may be for or against, but here's something your opinion doesn't matter. What you can do is get out of bed as best you can. How about a good song to wake up to the beat?

There are those who wake up reluctantly, and those who do it with all their energy.


One way or another, the fact is that we all need to get up.

Whether it's giving you a great night's sleep, or facing a busy schedule that starts early, you can do it more positively.

Psychotherapist David M. Greenberg of Cambridge University has compiled a list of songs that are ideal for starting the day.


His work was commissioned by the Spotify music streaming service.

The songs were chosen because they combine elements that “build” thoughts and, consequently, positive attitudes, such as a growing rhythm, lyrics that frighten the low mood and rhythmic beats.

That is, no love cries and tearful chords.


Top picks include Coldplay's “Viva La Vida”, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis's “Downtown”, Bill Withers's “Lovely Day”, and Demi Lovato's “Confident”.

You may not know most, or none at all.

Here is an opportunity to broaden your musical knowledge as you prepare for a happier day.
