It's Friday, the weekend is but a few hours away, and the afternoon slump is likely setting in. Daydreams have more magnetism than whatever's glaring at you from your to-do list. So, you turn to music.
Let's imagine that music as a soundtrack. Friday becomes a movie, and each phase of the last day of the work week — from waking up to leaving the office — gets its own song. Like scenes in a movie, each moment requires its own acoustic accompaniment. EDM is not a waking up sound, but The Beach Boys, however, are. The following playlist is designed to take you from morning to evening and after hours. Friday, dear readers, is aurally served.
