To commemerate the release of Dad Beans Batch #003, Tony "Tonx" Konecny, Co-Founder of Yes Plz, has brewed up yet another another tasty treat (AKA a smooth-sipping playlist). It’s 10 tracks of music to wake up to. For Tonx, morning is every moment between whenever he wakes up and when he decides to make his 2nd cup of coffee.
(We've listed the tracks and Tonx's notes below in case you don't use Spotify)
Good Morning Good Morning | The Beatles | John Lennon wishes you a good morning, and Ringo competently rattles some drums. A nice blast of sunshine.
Early In The Morning | The Gap Band | But if you really want to feel awake, nothing gets it done quite like funk
Chelsea Morning | Fairport Convention | A friend had this record on vinyl and it made me deeply nostalgic for a time I didn’t live through
Just a Little Lovin’ | Dusty Springfield | Dusty in Memphis is one of those desert island records and this is one of my favorite tracks
Sunday Morning | The Velvet Underground & Nico | Equal parts pretty and gritty, all at the same time.
Some Velvet Morning | Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazelwood | Country-tinged psychedelia, a genre that deserves a revival
Early In the Morning | Harry Nilsson| Nilsson Schmilsson is one of those records that’s so good and smart you don’t know where to file it, but when you put it on always feels right.
Angel of the Morning | Nina Simone | Sure, most of us got the Juice Newton version of this blasted into our brains by FM radio, but Nina Simone makes it dreamy.
Morning Train (Nine To Five) | Sheena Easton | Yes it sounds like a cheesy showtune, but Sheena Easton had that crystal clear voice and you’re not gonna be mad when this earworm keeps coming back to you. It slaps.
6 ‘N the Mornin’ | Ice T | The ground zero of gangsta rap. Word.
