On Air Now
The Smooth Late Show with Martin Collins 10pm - 1am
Some mornings, it can be extra hard to lift your head off the pillow. Here are 10 songs to help you get up on those tough mornings...
This 1967 hit is the perfect song to warm up those lungs in the morning. Guaranteed to wake YOU up and anyone else in the house!
After waking yourself up with 'Higher and Higher', take it down a notch with this chilled-out tune that will ease you into the morning. Perfect with a cuppa!
Keeping with the reggae theme now, here's a 1986 song that you may not be familiar with, but have a listen and you'll see why we chose it.
"Don't know much about history, don't know much biology" - this song which renounces the power of education in favour of love is one you might not want to play around the kiddies!
Picking up the pace now, this cheery song sets a positive tone for the day and reminds us to look at the bright side of life!
This classic will make you feel on top of the world as you start your day, and if you need an extra kick, try copying the dance routine of the ladies in the video!
If you have a big morning ahead, you definitely need to include this one. When the instrumental hits at 2.14, you better be dancing around the house, shaking those cobwebs off!
Maybe you've had a bad night's sleep or maybe you've got a tough morning ahead... This is the perfect anthem to remind you that you can do it!
This is a great song for a moment of clarity and pause before you start your day. It is of course a Christian hymn, but anyone can relate to this peaceful song.
One more blast of energy now to kick off your morning, this song written by Marvin Gaye gives that much needed natural kick. GO GET 'EM!
