I need about a kiddie pool of coffee straight to my dome every morning.
National Coffee Day is September 29.

Most of us can't function without our morning cup, whether it's black, loaded with sugar and cream, or one of those $10 fancy-pants 20-ouncejobs. It's part of our morning routine, it's a ritual, it warms our souls and gets us moving. It's a social custom and a hangover remedy. Not only do we love coffee, but coffee also loves us.

There are health benefits associated with drinking java. A growing body of research shows that coffee drinkers, compared to nondrinkers, are less likely to have Type 2 diabetes, Parkinson's disease and dementia, and have fewer cases of certain cancers, heart rhythm problems and strokes. But coffee isn't proven to prevent those conditions.

"There is certainly much more good news than bad news, in terms of coffee and health," says Frank Hu, MD, MPH, PhD, nutrition and epidemiology professor at the Harvard School of Public Health. A recent study even found that drinking coffee may lower women's risk of depression, so guys, don't complain too much when your lady skips off to Starbucks -- you know, "If Mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy."

To honor our most beloved beverage on its special day, we've compiled a list of our top 5 favorite songs about coffee.

5. Serge Gainsbourg - Couleur Café (1964)

4. Frank Sinatra - Coffee Song (1961)

3. Blur - Coffee & TV (1999)

2. Peggy Lee - Black Coffee (1956)

1. Otis Redding - Cigarettes & Coffee (1966)

You can skip to time stamp 2:20, but I'd suggest just starting from 0:00 and letting it build. Coffee, when it is there I consume it. BUT- That slow drip chilled stuff at Catalina right now is the jam.

My all-time favorite coffee lyric comes from the brilliant Dolly Parton in "9 to 5": "Tumble outta bed and I stumble to the kitchen; pour myself a cup of ambition..."

A cup of ambition? I mean! Who thinks of that?! Hail, Dolly. And coffee.
