There are some mornings when it all just comes together right. You wake up naturally a few minutes before the alarm goes off and, somehow, feel perfectly refreshed. A quick breakfast, then you step outside to find the sun shining as a gentle breeze tousles your hair. Pop in the headphones, open 8tracks, and strike off to face the day.

Like magic, your stride falls into perfect unison with the beat of that first song, and as you dance-walk your way down the street, you can’t help but feel like you’re starring in a movie about how awesome your life is. (Yeah, it’s goofy, but don’t pretend this exact scenario hasn’t played out in your mind before.)

Then, just as you stroll up to work, school, or better yet, that last-minute coffee date you arranged after calling in sick this morning, the last few notes of the final track on that blissful playlist fade out...utter perfection. There really is no better way to start your day.

We’d like to believe that this might just be one of those days. And there’s a pretty good chance the perfect playlist is waiting for you below. You're a star...you're a star...you're a big, bright, shining star...
