Whether you’re stoked to have made it to the start of the week or you’re dreading yet another mundane Monday, I’ve gathered the tracks that get me in the Monday mood. An eclectic mixture of tracks, genres, and vibes - this selection is meant to get your week started on the right note (pun totally intended).
Bill Withers - “Lovely Day”
Released 34 years ago in 1977, this song still strikes me and boosts my mood as much as the first time I heard it. It’s romantic and mellow and perfect to sip your coffee to.
Yazmin Lacey - “Morning Matters”
A smooth, jazzy reminder to be grateful that you made it another day! Infused with silky sax and keys, this track is for waking up slow and owning your morning.
Greentea Peng - “Hu Man”
A delicate blend between a bossanova and soul sound, the hook in this track “Searching for balance, praying for clarity,” hits different on a Monday morning, but the gentle voice of Greentea Peng keeps the song dazzling and playful.
Boyan - “Just Another Day”
The use of playful keys and a thick bass line on this “Just Another Day” make it such a feel-good instrumental. A moment to relax your mind and get in the zone.
Jungle - “Busy Earnin’”
On the verge of being a workaholic’s anthem, this jam by Jungle reminds me of the motivation behind it all. The intro is powerful and the disco-like dynamic of the track keeps the energy alive. Also, check out that dance choreo in the video!!
Melodiesinfonie ft. Fiona Fiasco - “Boys Suck”
This song is gives me such a sun-drenched summer feel. Melodiesinfonie and Fiona Fiasco are such a dreamy duo and this track is one of my personal favorites.
Booming with energy, Bicep’s music always put me in a good mood. “Sundial” is a progressive electronic track sure to get you in the right mindset for a workday. There’s the perfect amount of space and texture opening you up to a balanced day.
DJ Counselling - “Every Day the Sun Comes Up”
Opulent and optimistic, this instrumental is pure bliss. Taking you on a sonic journey, it is a bright way to wake up not just every morning, but especially on a Monday morning. Keep your head up - every day the sun comes up.
Jazzinuf - “Coffee and Cigarettes”
Such a cheeky arrangement of jazzy keys! Layered on top of a chill hop beat, this track is practically the equivalent of a coffee and cigarette breakfast - dynamic, yet grounding.
The Dynamics - “For The Love of Money” 7 Samurai Remix
I’ve loved this song ever since it came out in 2012. A remix of the original by The Dynamics, this track retains the same funky energy, but it’s a more mellow and relaxed version of it. Who said you can’t love money and also love the funk?
Hopefully, at least one of these tracks resonated with you and the start to your weekday. Happy Monday and happy listening from Stereofox!
