SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

As winter descends, it becomes more difficult to get out of your warm, cozy bed for that cold morning class. What better way to wake up than with some music? Here are some songs that are guaranteed to get your day off to the right start.

• Van Halen, “Jump”

This song is a great energy booster to start off your day, and it will make you want to “jump” to class.

• Coldplay, “Clocks”

What better time to make a mental To Do list than in the morning? Chris Martin’s crooning about time is the perfect song for just that.

• Weezer, “Island in the Sun”

After realizing your mental to do list is impossibly long, take a chill pill and picture yourself on a “golden sea” far away from the cold of Iowa.

• Shakira, “She Wolf”

While you are enjoying your mental vacation, think about the awesome time you will have howling along with Shakira at the bar this weekend.

• Lupe Fiasco, featuring Jill Scott, “Daydreamin’”

Speaking of mental vacations, Fiasco’s raps will have you feeling even better as you begin to actually open your eyes after a night of slumber.

• The Dead Weather, “I Cut Like a Buffalo”

The lyrics may make no sense whatsoever, but the beat and Jack White’s awesome voice will have you dancing around your room. Roommates beware.

• Anya Marina, “Satellite Heart”

As you begin to actually feel coherent and gather your belongings, Marina’s crooning is the perfect backdrop.

• AC/DC, “Back in Black”

Crank up the beat, and forget about the class you have to go to. Think about how much fun you’re going to have watching the Hawkeyes take down Ohio State.

• Bob Marley, “Three Little Birds”

The week can be hectic and overwhelming, so “don’t worry about a thing” as you start your day the Rasta way.

• Pink Floyd, “Another Brick in the Wall”

As you are about to begin your trek to class, why not listen to a good rebellious rock song?
