If this video doesn't put a smile on your face, there must be something wrong with you. "I Woke Up Today" comes from Port O'Brien's album All We Could Do Was Sing, which has bombarded most of our favorite online and satellite radio outlets. This particular track is beyond infectious, making it the perfect selection for a music video. The clip was directed by Blake Behnam, who takes the band on a boat ride that includes a shark attack and discovering a castaway. Have you ever seen a shark dance? If not, you sure will now.
Port O'Brien's "I Woke Up Today" is the perfect sing-along for a summer day, giddy enough to even make the Polyphonic Spree seem gloomy in comparison. Also, the band is on the road, performing with Builders And The Butchers and Bodies Of Water on select dates. Check out their itinerary below the video.
