"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 #1 on the Billboard Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart. It also peaked at the top of Canada's singles chart,[1] #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in April 1999 (#2 Hot 100 Airplay),[2] and #10 on the UK Singles Chart. It reached #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."[3]
