Wherever you are in the world: good morning, good afternoon, good evening, good night. It is time for your 5 a day.

One day, the UK government said, "You should eat 5 portions of fruit or veg[etables] per day." Turns out you should probably eat more than that. But we think it's pretty catchy, so we've hijacked it. Here we'll list FIVE pieces of music per DAY that we think you should check out. As the Italians say, we'll be catching two pigeons with one bean (prendere due piccioni con una fava): we help spread the word about MORE artists, plus we're giving YOU more music to listen to. It's all a joy for us, really!

What do we have for you today? Five tracks that we enjoyed very much. Each one tasty, each with different flavours. There are rainbow flavours, grey flavours, hard flavours, subtle flavours, complex flavours, rich flavours, pastel flavours, sad flavours… All of it culminates in a buffet of very flavoursome proportions, transforming your spirit with each bite of every dish, transporting you to different places, multiple planes of existence, varying vessels of life. It is ever-astounding how music allows you to see, think and feel differently – if only for a fleeting few minutes.

Carefree living as a fantasy version of yourself

You are a dandelion seed looking down at a sad moment

Life as a stormy cartoon sea with you sailing on it in a tiny boat

At a party and there is a time machine in the kitchen and everyone is using it and laughing and having a good time

Three seconds before waking up, dreaming of rainbow waterfalls
