Music for the Morning After

Hugs and kisses to the WhenYouAwake blog for putting this amazing mixtape together for this loveliest of holidays, Valentines Day. If you look closely, you’ll see that even we naturalismo boys got a tune in the mix – does that mean that we’ll be able to put it to good use? Here’s to hoping.

From the gals:

In honor of the love fest that is Valentine’s Day, we bring you a very special gift. Following last year’s V-Day mixtape, we decided to continue on with our “Music For the Morning After” theme, but with a lil’ twist this time around. In addition to entries submitted by the usual players over at When You Awake, we asked some of our favorite bands and bloggers to pick a song that represents that warm feeling you get when you wake up in your lover’s arms. We are very proud and excited to offer you “Music For The Morning After 2009: A Two Volume Collection of Love Songs”. Volume One contains songs chosen by musicians like Dr Dog, Beachwood Sparks, Vetiver, Howlin’ Rain and The Bees. Volume Two features tracks chosen by our esteemed blogger friends like Aquarium Drunkard, Setting The Woods On Fire and Arthur Magazine.

From all of us here at When You Awake and the many lovely folks who contributed to this project, Happy Morning After Valentine’s Day!!

  1. An addiction to sports gambling is rather similar to any other kind of addiction as the addiction begins to take charge and control your life.
    In the long run sports like soccer, cricket, volleyball and other exclusive sports events World Cup and Olympics are
    more enclosed because of their ideal viewership in the
    world which furthermore captured a large number of
    the dignified viewers. Some Asians prefer the long tedious hours playing Mahjong while
    others gamble heavily on Toto or more popularly known as
    Lotto in Europe.
