How to survive Monday

We all have it. That song we listen to when we’re walking down the street that makes us feel cool. I mean really, really cool. So cool that we sort of pretend we’re in the music video, mouthing or singing along to the bemusement of others. We almost definitely don’t look cool, but god do we feel it.

Now I know you’re probably thinking what does this have to do with sync music? Well it’s Sunday afternoon which for most means the dread of the Monday commute has begun to set in. This is exactly the time when you need the songs that make you feel great. The ones that make it slightly less painful to to be squashed into someone’s armpit on the tube. So I’m treating your life as a TV show and I’ve decided to music supervise your journey to work (you’re welcome).

The average commute for us Londoners is 56 minutes, so I’ve compiled a list of precisely that length. Here are the songs that work for me, and might work for you too:

  1. Alt-J – Fitzpleasure
  2. Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Gold Lion
  3. Ray Charles – Hit The Road Jack
  4. Modest Mouse – We’ve Got Everything
  5. Marvin Gaye – Sunny
  6. If You Want Blood – AC/DC
  7. One Direction – What Makes You Beautiful (ok, this is embarrassing)
  8. Neil Young With Crazy Horse – Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere
  9. Busta Rhymes – Break Ya Neck
  10. Fleetwood Mac – Go Your Own Way
  11. Jay-Z – 99 Problems
  12. The Beach Boys – I Get Around
  13. Black Sabbath – Paranoid
  14. The Cure – Just Like Heaven
  15. Red Hot Chili Peppers – Give It Away
  16. The Mars Volta- Inertiatic Esp (just to check you’re still awake)

If none of these float your boat, check out a selection of songs chosen by some of my lovely followers:

  1. William Onyeabor – Fantastic Man
  2. Muse – Uprising
  3. Paolo Nutini – Pencil Full Of Lead
  4. Marc Teichert – Time
