    On Sunday mornings I fill my home with the sounds of “(Sittin’ on) The Dock of the Bay” by Otis Reading because it is one of the most relaxing and happy tracks ever made. No better song.

    1. mildred st. meadowlark

      Just give the man the voucher. This song is it.

      But follow it up with ‘Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone’ and we’re onto a glorious Sunday.

      1. Bertie Blenkinsop

        It’s a happy song if you sing it in a Ronan Keating voice

        Shitt!n’ in the mornin’ schun,
        I’ll be sh!ttin’ when the evenin’ comesch…

          You know the lead singer had an obsession with poo? Mike Thingy.
          The other band members, drinking in their tour van, would pour OJ into their vodka only to find one of his poos plopping out into the glass. Maybe that’s what the EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW was about.

  2. Seán

    On Sunday mornings I fill my home with the sounds of Nick Drake – Five Leaves Left because it is undeniably beautiful

  3. Horselover Fat

    ‘On Sunday mornings I fill my home with the sounds of Halber Mensch by Einstürzende Neubauten because it’s just so soothing and calming. It’s like a wave of reassurance washing over me.

    1. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

      Holy God. I just listened to some of that. It’s so CREEPY! It’d completely give me the heebie-jeebies.

  4. Penfold

    On Sunday mornings I fill my home with the sounds of The Gutter Twins “Saturnalia” album because it’s an amazing depressing listen. A bluesy rock album with the vocals of Mark Lanegan and Greg Dulli, guys with voices beholden to every cigarette they dragged throughout their different careers.

  5. TheCitizen

    On Sunday mornings I am mostly listening to the talented Irish singer and producer Gavin Glass and the title track from his most recent album ‘Sunday Songs’ because he gets it. The getting old, the hangover, the fun, the realism and the optimism. Worth a listen anytime, Sunday morning ideally.
    “I was old before my time, I peaked before my prime, but I’m rolling on, singing Sunday songs.”

  6. Harry Molloy

    On Sunday morning’s I fill my home with the sounds of Procal Harum’s Whiter Shade of Pale because I. sounds great, you can sing along without knowing what you’re singing about (poxiest bleedin’ lyrics ever written) and it reminds me of being little when my dad would be singing along to classic gold while making a fry, and would give me a sausage on a fork which would satisfy my little stomach

  7. Kolmo

    ‘On Sunday mornings I fill my home with the sounds of Bill Withers “Lovely Day” because I’ll tell you why – you wake up, feeling like a slug, climb out of bed after giving her a hug, scratch your head as you hop from the bed, have the dogs been fed? We’ll have to see after quite a lengthy pee. Roll downstairs, tip on over to the shiny kettle, still not feeling the finest of fettle, fill her up as you look at the pup, right so, let’s start the show – on goes Lovely Day, a warm wave melts over you that everything is going to be OK.

  8. mildred st. meadowlark

    On Sundays I fill my home with the sounds of ‘Sunrise’ by Norah Jones because it’s a wonderfully warm song and just makes me bliss out as I make an enormous stack of food.

    Also anything by Fleet Foxes. They have a wonderfully uplifting sound to their music that would suit a relaxing and ponderous Sunday morning.

    1. bertie blenkinsop

      Have you seen ‘My Blueberry Nights’ Mildred?
      It’s half decent but the soundtrack is fantastic.

      1. mildred st. meadowlark

        I haven’t. Might just have to check it out.

        The soundtrack of Lost in Translation is glorious. Really lovely, if you’ve never checked it out.

    1. Shayna

      It paints a picture, certainly of a typical Sunday morning. The wafting fragrance of croissants gently warming in the oven, the Illy coffee percolating. waiting for the keenly timed plunge of the French Press. The little neighbour paper boy/kid has delivered the broadsheets (with all the magazines intact) – let’s get some Liszt on!

  9. Joe Cool

    On Sunday mornings. I like to fill my house with the sounds of Frank sinatra on vinyl. Read the morning papers and have a nice breakfast.

  10. gorugeen

    on Sunday mornings I like to fill my home with the sound of Dummy by Portishead. Why? Because it’s the perfect soundtrack to Sunday morning happy time.

  11. Smith

    On Sunday mornings I fill my home with the sound of The Boomtown Rats’ ‘I Don’t Like Mondays.’

    It scares the bejaysus out of me until I realise it’s Sunday, turn over and go back to an even nicer sleep.

  12. :-Joe

    Anything by Johnathan Richmann & The Modern Lovers for upbeat fun tunes or Curtis Mayfield if a more relaxing funk is needed…

    Both work great for hangovers / Sunday blues / The impending doom of another Monday etc., too…


  13. James M.Chimney

    Sunday morning. It could be Dream Wife or possibly Screaming females. Sometimes the vinyl goes on or sometimes it’s purely digital. If I’m busy cooking breakfast, I’ll opt for something upbeat, Joy Division or a bit of bat cave. As the sausages sizzle under the grill, I’ll reach for imaginary cobwebs. As I pour the orange juice, I lament to Cave’s refrain…why are all the women weeping?

    The only correct answer to this ‘so-called’ competition was ‘Sunday Shining’ by Finlay Quaye.
    – And before you start smirking at all the people who got it wrong, remember, you weren’t right either.

    It goes…it goes…it goes.. it goes like this…

      1. esǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

        I know what you mean bertie.
        I had high hopes for the lad too…

        I think I remember reading something about him being a bit of a dickhead. Not sure.

  15. esǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

    Where is the obligatory U2 fan, with a two paragraph explanation/essay on why the rest of us don’t ‘understand’ ‘ Sunday Bloody Sunday’.
    I love that song.
    (I’m whistling it now, as I type…)

  16. esǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

    Hey, while Im here…
    I’d just like to take this opportunity to to wave at anybody reading this who gets put in moderation for little or no reason.
    – See that bloke waving at you from the other side of the fence… the ‘not in moderation’ side..?
    – yeah… That’s me..

    Bwahhh-haaa, ha!

    It’s not fair, is it?

  17. Shayna

    It’s Sunday morning, there’s no-one to gently warm my croissants in the oven, there’s no Illy freshly ground coffee percolating, the Papers have arrived (mags not fully intact – Damn you, little neighbour paperboy/kid). I’m trying to feel better about my disastrous artichokes entrée at my last dinner party (balsamic vinegar on the table, what was I thinking?). Anyhoos, I got Bob

  18. Odockatee

    On Sunday mornings I fill my home with the sounds of Badly Drawn Boys ‘Hour of the Bewilderbeast’ because from the opening cornflakes themed The Shining its a gentle but interesting meander near the water and back. Just a beautiful document of moments in time
