While lots of folks wake up in the morning trying to remember the crazy dream from the night before, I wake up with a song in my head.
Most mornings without fail, upon awaking, I’m greeted by a random song—not random because I don’t know it, but random because I can’t figure out why this particular song is on my mind.
Of course I wanted to investigate, so I started keeping a journal by my bed so that I could record the song as soon as I got up to see if I could see any patterns for genre, beat, mood, etc. I named the list my “Wake Up Song Log” and I kept it for a month—actually I’m still recording it, but the results I’m sharing as of today cover the month-long project.
I’d absolutely love to see if you all see any pattern here, because I didn’t see anything. And if there’s anyone who also wakes up with random songs in their head, definitely let me know in the comments or on Instagram.
Now, without further ado, here you go—a completely random Spotify playlist of the songs that were in my head when I woke up April 8th-May 19th. And before you ask yes, Baby Shark and Boogie in Your Butt are songs that were actually in my head when I woke up.
