SOUNDTRACK: The light in the morning, soon after the sun comes up, lets you see after the darkness. It is soft and new. It has promise. You hold a cup of fresh, hot coffee and you breathe in the cool air. The sky is partially lit, and there is one area that is especially bright.
What piece of music would fit best to capture a mood that a new day may bring something wonderful? Since the mood contains some uncertainty, I think it needs to be a little sad, just to avoid too much optimism.
This does it for me: Paul McCartney with Irving Berlin’s “Always.”
