Toad the Wet Sprocket's 'Pray Your Gods' is a melancholy way to start the day.
If that's not your thing, you could listen to The Doors' 'The End' or maybe Dylan's 'Most of the Time' or half of Pink Floyd's catalogue. All perfect for a cloudy rain-threatening morning where ya just don't feel like doing anything.
But then what you do is you pop on Arlo Guthrie's 'Alice's Restaurant' and think to yourself, 'Hey...it could be worse. I could listen to this song again. I want my 18 minutes back.' Oh wait...that'll lead you back to 'Pray Your Gods.'
Ya can't win. Have some coffee, pull yourself out of your funk, and do something life-changing. And pop on something peppy while you do it. Try Phish or The Aquabats or Barenaked Ladies.
'You can get anything you want at Alice's Restaurant...'
