13 Songs That'll Make Your Commute Fly By

NEW YORK, NY - DECEMBER 05: Passengers ride in a subway car two days after a man was pushed to his death in front of a train on December 5, 2012 in New York City. The incident was caught by a photographer and has since raised questions as to why someone didn't help the man before the train struck him. The New York City subway system, with 468 stations in operation, is the most extensive public transportation system in the world. It is also one of the world's oldest public transit systems, with the first underground line of the subway opening on October 27, 1904. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)

Let's face it: Morning commutes are the worst. You're tired, you're not looking forward to another long day at work, and — be honest — you probably snoozed so long that you didn't even have time to pack a lunch. Sitting on a subway, a bus, or in your car is pretty much the worst, and that's a fact. 

But it doesn't have to be — as long as you have the right soundtrack. Here are 13 songs that will get you pumped for the day, even if you're stuck sitting next to someone that smells a little weird and clearly doesn't understand the meaning of personal space.
