This bead (suggested by Daniel Burstein) was inspired by the poet Rives who gave an amazing Ted Talk about how 4AM is used in songs, films, poems, Giacometti sculpture. As he puts it "for a time that I find placid, four in the morning sure does get a lot of bad press." But I find this fascinating - and thought we could create a bead to explore the evolution of its use from moments of inspiration, to exasperation, to loneliness. I'm putting this in the ideas category - but any type of audio/video is welcome - film, comedy, music, art, etc.

Rives has built a nice site to collect 4am references called fourinthemorning.com.

The Hassles - 4 O'Clock In the Morning
Jaime Wolf

The Genius That is Joel

Presumably the Billy Joel who led The Hassles was the Angry Young Man upon whom he would later look back through the mature lens of albums such as Turnstiles. But even an Angry Young Man could be "grateful to the morning for the solitude I found."
