Music To Start Your Day With

This is the music I like to hear when I wake up in the morning, next to a beautiful woman, which will happen one day, I'm sure... ;-) All songs are about (early) mornings, sleeping, waking up and the break of day. The one from Bryan Ferry is perhaps an exception. It's a superb remake of the classic from the Shirelles. Although their song is about respecting a woman after making love, Bryan Ferry seems to sing about doubt or cheat in a relationship. He uses the same words, but he turns the song (a composition from Gerry Goffin and Carole King) into something completely different. His version is my definition of a good cover: making it seem a composition of your own. Beautiful picture from Valeria Querini.
