Music vs the News

I’m in a quandary.

In the morning I love listening to the news.  I love reading the news, listening to the news.  Whether science news, politics, world news, or anything else.  Except maybe celebrity news.  Can’t stand that.

But then I think, reading the news leaves me informed, but does it set me up for a good day.  Does it improve my mood?

Probably not.

But music does.  Starting my mornings with music sets me up for a good day.

But then I’m not up-to-date on happenings in the world.


Be informed or be set the mood for the day?

Also writing just the words “music vs the news” made me think of the Beastie Boys.  Biz vs the Nuge anyone?
