Mornings With Carson Daly Share Their Favorite Wake Up Songs

By Sarah Carroll

Nobody actually ENJOYS waking up for work, but with the right kind of wake-up call, mornings seem a little less brutal.

Spotify recently teamed up with psychology PhD candidate David M. Greenberg to curate the perfect playlist to get you going bright and early.

There’s a whole science to it. The secret is finding a song that builds slowly, has a positive message, and rocks to a strong beat.

Check out the 20-song playlist below:

  • Viva La Vida – Coldplay
  • Elevate – St. Lucia
  • Downtown – Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
  • Lovely Day – Bill Withers
  • Wake Me Up – Avicii
  • Can’t Sleep Love – Pentatonix
  • Confident – Demi Lovato
  • Wake Up – Arcade Fire
  • Love Myself – Hailee Steinfeld
  • Money On My Mind – Sam Smith
  • I Can’t Help It – Esperanza Spalding, Joe Lovano
  • Come And Get It – John Newman
  • Ain’t Nobody (Loves Me Better) – Felix Jaehn, Jasmine Thompson
  • Feel Right – Mark Ronson, Mystikal
  • Rather Be – Clean Bandit, Jess Glynne
  • Walking On Sunshine – Katrina & The Waves
  • On Top Of The World – Imagine Dragons
