Monday Mix: Better Than Coffee

I needed the ultimate pick me up this morning to tackle a day that includes two planes, one hellish highway and a tour bus—probably not a good time for any Michael Bublé (shout to Steely!). So I created a mix, and not of the usual “top-40” variety…something a little more left of center. Here are my fave seven tracks for ya, hopefully this gets you through the afternoon slump!:
