Let’s be honest – brushing your teeth is pretty boring. But it doesn’t need to be. All you have to do is create a fun atmosphere and even the most menial tasks can become a lot of fun. How better to do that than to treat yourself to some amazing music to start your day in a way that is both jovial and healthy?
#5) Lorde – White Teeth Teens
Lorde’s track from her 2013 debut is the perfect tune to kick off your morning routine. It starts off mellow enough so that it doesn’t wake you up too quickly, but it ramps up and gets you in the groove at the right time. “We got the glow in our mouths / White teeth teens are up for it!”, sings the young New Zealander. Surely you don’t want to be a discolored teeth teen.
#4) Future Islands – A Dream of You and Me
This upbeat track from the Baltimore indie synthpop trio is an excellent soundtrack to the beginning of any day. The catchy rhythm will have you dancing in front of your mirror without even realizing it. And if that’s not enough, the song delivers a wonderful message as well: “People lie, people love, people go / But beauty lies in every soul”.
#3) Cassius – Feeling for You
If this massive 90s club banger from French house duo Cassius doesn’t get you in the right mood, nothing will. The bassline is absolutely infectious and the beat constantly threatens to knock your walls down. Who needs coffee when you have Cassius?
#2) Calle 13 – Atrevete-te-te
Time to mix things up with this amazing collage of sounds by Puerto Rican band Calle 13. The group effortlessly fuses hip-hop, indie rock and reggaetón into a single, brilliant whole. The track is an absolute delight for the senses and will make you feel as if you’re brushing your teeth on a white sandy beach in the middle of the Caribbean.
#1) Katy Perry – Chained to the Rhythm (feat. Skip Marley)
Katy Perry made a huge comeback earlier this year with this catchy, mid-tempo invitation to the dance floor. The breezy track was co-written by Sia and features Bob Marley’s grandson, Skip Marley. At first glance, the song does nothing but make you dance, but if you scratch beneath the surface, you’ll find a strong political statement: “So comfortable, we live in a bubble / So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble”.
