The Commuter’s Playlist

By  |  0 Comments



Whether you’re driving, walking, or riding the subway, it’s pretty hard to stay awake—especially when it’s 8 a.m. Ugh. All I can say is this: humans were definitely not made to get up this early.

Make your morning commute easier with our latest playlist! We have complied a list of the best songs that will keep you pumped up and alert all day long. Have no fear— you won’t find any sappy, sad, or slow songs here! Sorry Adele

When tomorrow’s commute rolls around, stick your ear buds in and give our playlist a try! We promise you that you’ll be jamming in an instant! In fact, we bet that you’ll be so awake that you won’t need that morning cup of Joe! (Unless you’re addicted to caffeine of course… In that case, we say you have our permission to go ahead and drink your coffee. We must warn you though: Drinking and head bobbing takes some serious skill…)

 Happy commuting!


Campus — Vampire Weekend

Vampire Weekend literally sings about rolling out of bed, so this song is perfect. Any fan of the band would agree that this song is so good that it should be your new wakeup ringtone!

Days Go By — Keith Urban

Put a positive spin on your morning with this country song. You can’t help but sing along to the lyrics- they’re just so darn catchy! What else would you expect from the king of country?

Party Rock Anthem — LMFAO

Need I say more? Obviously America can’t get enough of this song, and neither can I.

Kick Drum Heart — The Avett Brothers

Typically The Avett Brothers are known for their slow melodies, but this particular song is so upbeat! It will definitely keep you bright-eyed and bushytailed every morning! 

You Make My Dreams Come True — Hall & Oates

How can you not be in a good mood after listening to this song? Listen to it and I promise that you will be able to take on the day ahead and the challenges that come along with it!

Good Morning Baltimore — The Hairspray Cast

This song is for all of you Broadway babies! The bangin’ beat and cheesy lyrics will have you smiling all day long! Seriously, I’ll bet you five bucks.

The Wind — Zac Brown Band

Warning: You’ve gotta be real country for this one! If you’re a fan of the fiddle, you’ll instantly fall in love with this boot stomping song!

Moves Like Jagger — Maroon 5

You’ll want to show off your own moves to this song, but please don’t if you’re driving. If you are walking or sitting on the subway, I say go for it!
