Gypsy's Music with your links and coffee

Small concession to the rock request: Jason Mraz Make It Mine available on his single import or We Sing We Dance We Steal Things. You get 2 versions on the latter recording; I prefer the more commercial one; not something I tend toward. This is a great upbeat song to get you going any time of day. The energetic scales in the bridge led me to my classical choices:

Johann Sebastian Bach Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 in D Major. Lots o' energy, and you never quite know what you're gonna get at the end of the harpsichord cadenza in the middle, cause it's up to the person with the twinkle fingers.

Sergei Prokofiev Symphony No. 1 in D Major, "Classical". Short movements to take you from one thing to the next in the morning. During the more graceful 2nd movement, you can relax, sip, and read for a short spell.

Maurice Ravel La Valse. A bit of a jab at the Viennesse dance, but also way cool, and the scales will remind you to keep moving about your day.
