  112. Fire and Rain – James Taylor (Morning in the lyrics)

  116. Just had to second the motion for William Fitzsimmons – Goodmorning. One of the most beautiful songs ever.

  117. Breakfast in America—by Roger Hodgson

  118. One of these mornings – Moby

    The lyrics are a tad depressive, but this is still one of his best productions. Moby always managed to capture just the right moods in his music – as if the compositions told stories.

    Surprised nobody has mentioned this one yet.


  119. Good Morning Sunshine – from Hair
    Chelsea Morning – Joni Mitchell

  120. Z=Trip “Breakfast Club”

  121. Morning yearning-Ben Harper

  122. Wake Up, Boo! by the Boo Radleys

    (Begins “Wake up it’s a beautiful morning”)

  123. No Morning by The Keep Secrets.

  124. Pink Floyd: Echoes

    “Cloudless everyday you fall upon my waking eyes
    inviting and inciting me to rise
    And through the window in the wall
    Come streaming in on sunlight wings
    A million bright ambassadors of morning”

  125. 2 songs that immediately pop into my head:
    In the morning – razorlight
    morning dreams – ladyhawke

  126. bob marley – three little birds

    “Rise up this mornin’,
    Smiled with the risin’ sun,
    Three little birds
    Pitch by my doorstep
    Singin’ sweet songs
    Of melodies pure and true,
    Sayin’, This is my message to you-ou-ou:”

  127. Well, I woke up this morning, got myself a beer.
    Well, I woke up this morning, and I got myself a beer.
    The future’s uncertain and the end is always near…

    The Doors, Roadhouse Blues

  128. trying to add ones you haven’t got yet….

    roman candle – woke up this morning
    joe purdy – paris in the morning
    maroon 5 – sunday morning
    ben rector – early morning riser
    counting crows – on almost any sunday morning

  129. Gotta echo the earlier shout-out for The Gap Band’s “Early in the Morning.” Frilly, metallic silver jumpsuits…need I say more? Okay, I will…the drummer’s sticks are on fire throughout the video. These guys are serious about “getting up!”


  130. Orin Lavie’s ‘Her Morning Elegance” – a major plus is the great stop-action video!

  131. doesn’t have morning in the title but in the first line, and That’s good enough for me (especially with this song):

    Gold Day—Sparklehorse

  132. I realize it’s about a place and not the time of day, but I still love “Mornington Crescent” by Belle and Sebastian and think that it is appropriately Morning-y. Also, “Someone’s Sleeping” by Bonnie Prince Billy.

  133. And “You Were on my Mind” by We Five.

  134. ween – stay forever
    “In the morning sun, I couldn’t tell you
    I couldn’t tell you so many things
    About how much I really love you
    About how much you really mean”

  135. I only remember the name ‘Morning Stars’ but i don’t remember the Artist .-.

  136. leonard cohen
    blue raincoat of course:

  137. Can’t believe nobody mentioned this classic tune:

    Sitting on the Dock of the Bay – Otis Redding (Sittin’ in the mornin’ sun…)

    Also, some really great Swedish indie pop:

    Will You Love Me in the Morning? – Acid House Kings

  138. I believe no one has mentioned “Morning Theft” by Jeff Buckley yet.

  159. Angel of the morning – Bettye Swann

  160. Easybeats – Friday on my mind

  161. “nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina, in the morning
    strolling with my girlie when the dew is pearly early, in the morning
    when the morning glories
    twine around my door
    whispering pretty stories
    I want to hear some more–

    butterflies all flutter up and kiss each little buttercup,
    in the morning . . .”

  162. In the morning – Junior Boys

  163. “It’s a Good Day” by Perry Como. I defy you to a) not smile when you hear it and 2) not catch yourself singing it later in the day. Can’t be done.

  164. Kris Kristofferson wrote Sunday Morning Coming Down and he recorded it as well as Johnny Cash.

    Nobody mentioned There’s Got to be a Morning After by Maureen McGovern?

    “She Even Woke Me Up To Say Goodbye” Mickey Newbury

  165. First thought- Tik Tok by Ke$ha! (only one other person mentioned earlier! I was so surprised!)

  166. ALSO, Bachman-Turner Overdrive – “Taking Care of Business”:

    ‘You get up every morning/
    From your ‘larm clock’s warning/
    Take the 8:15 into the city/
    There’s a whistle up above/
    And people pushin’, people shovin’/
    And the girls who try to look pretty’

  167. One of my favorites is Here Comes the Sun by the Beatles. Maybe it doesn’t specifically use morning in the title, but the spirit is there and morning is definitely implied.
