"Every Morning" is the lead single of Sugar Ray's album 14:59. It was one of Sugar Ray's most successful singles, climbing to number one on the US Billboard Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart and Canada's RPM Top Singles chart, becoming the country's second highest-selling single of 1999. It also reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100 in April 1999 and number 10 on the UK Singles Chart. It was ranked number 98 on the Triple J Hottest 100, 1999, Australia's largest annual music poll.

Composition[edit]

The chorus of the song samples "Suavecito" by the Chicano music group Malo, as well as Hugh Masekela's 1968 hit "Grazing in the Grass". Mark McGrath explained, "We referenced 'Suavecito' because growing up in California, you know, that was just like the low rider anthem. Any car show or swap meet you'd ever go by, you'd always hear that [song] and that just stuck in your mind." He added, "We actually came up with that part, and it was very similar to Malo's part. We were sort of imitating it, and then we said, 'Let's just leave it, we're gonna change it later.' It really makes the song – we think – so we just left it."[2]
